Why do we say ''Jesus Christ''?

    So there I was, shopping. I picked up a portable DVD player thinking this would make a good gift for someone for Christmas. I hear a woman next to me say ''Jesus Christ''. I turn to look at her, she looked stressed. Later that day I'm sitting down to drink some water. Some guy can't seem to get his money out of the A.T.M. He mutters ''Jesus Christ''. Why do people say ''Jesus Christ'' when angry? Why not say ''Fruit loops'' or ''Brad Pitt''?

    Why does this pop into our brain? Do we take the lords name in vein because we know it's wrong? Or does it come to us naturally because everyone else says it?:huh:

    We do it because we've heard it so much, it's implanted in our brains to say it.

    Because we are unable to accept responsibility for our own actions. So when we stub our toe, we don't think, "I should be more careful." Oh No! We think, "Look what God's done to me now!" And subconsciously we immediatly leap to, "Since you did that to ME... I'll now do something to you!" Then we do what we know we shouldn't and somehow... somehow this little evil makes us feel better. Kinda like posting on the internet.

    When I stub my toe, I usually say "OW! F***!!!" I say "Jesus Christ" when I'm in traffic or something.

    See "OW! F***!!!" is what I say in traffic.

    To each their own.

    I went through a stage where I'd say "Judas Priest" a lot.

    Anyone hear anyone say "Jesus, Mary, and Joseph?" I remember my 4th grade teacher used to always say that.

    It is a bit to much, but it's dedication.

    i assume it's something to do with transferring our pain to jesus himself - he allegedly died in immense pain for our sins, etc etc

    Would you prefer they freebased him, instead? :huh:


    My personal favorite usage, usually uttered at idiotic drivers is "Jesus H. F**king Christ on a popsicle stick turned sideways and upside down with a cherry on f**king top!"

    You just made a bunch of people who have yelled out "Jesus Christ!" during orgasm incredibly uncomfortable.
