Mormons are famous for creating fake curse words. Fetch. Flip. Frick.

But there's one that stands out to me because I've only heard a non-Mormon use it once and it was in the movie Billy Madison.

When Billy and his friends light a bag full of dog poop on fire and put it on an old guys door step, the guy comes out and says:

"Judas Priest! Barbara, it's one of those flaming bags again!"

Now, I understand that using "Judas Priest" as a stand-in to avoid breaking a commandment has it's origin probably well before Mormons and definitely all around the Christian world, but I never hear anybody but Mormons use it.

Do people in the South use it? Do Catholics say it?

Per the r/Christianity sub-Reddit:

Judas Priest is a band name taken from a Bob Dylan song. Its obviously just a random two word name that's come to be popular as a handy non-blasphemous replacement for 'Jesus Christ', in the same way as 'sugar' has come to be used by some people as a replacement for 'shit', and 'fudge' as a replacement for the F-word. There's no other link between the words.

The other thing to consider is that I'm getting old. I don't think kids these days are saying Judas Priest. I think they're saying words like "swell" and "so is your old man" and if so my got trouble! Yeah you got trouble right here in St. George City! With a capital T and that rhymes with P and that stands for pool!

Sorry about that.
