No it's pronounced \"Oh, my god.\" Signifying that it is, infact, not your god.

It's called a figure of speech, a vernacular expression, an exclamation, an expostulation. It's not intended as a theological statement, and it is just insanity to insist on taking it as such.

\"And, in a small way, you are mocking us because it isn't your God\"
Hell, I mock you in a big way, too!
Why? You make it soooooo easy!

the reason we use that expression is because it is so deeply inbedded in the English language and we have heard it so many times that it becomes automatic. it means nothing except that, at least in some instances, we find your utter stupidity astounding.

I've always preferred saying crap on christ, but that's just me.

boo freakin hoo...get a life stop worrying about what term your \"god\" is being used for...hes more worried about other more intelligent things...like getting rid of you

I use \"god\" as a swear simply due to the vernacular, but I have to admit I uae variations of \"Jesus Christ\" just to piss people off.

well I use "holy shit!" all the time and I don't believe in the holyness of feces

I actually prefer "oh your god", "oh your fucking god", "oh their god" or "oh their fucking god".
OYG, OYFG, OTG and OTFG are also acceptable.

"And, in a small way, you are mocking us because it isn't your God if you understand what I'm saying"
Make your God appear to me in physical form that can be seen, heard & touched (and no, not Jesus), so he can speak for himself. Until you can, therefore God doesn't exist. Prove otherwise. Thus blasphemy is a victimless crime. And if you aren't being insulted personally (even if you are, grow a thicker skin already!), why should you care what others say?
"a God you do not even believe in and using that possession for, what we consider, a sinful purpose"
'Sin' is defined as disobeying divine law, or going against rules laid down by a deity. But since we Atheists refuse to acknowledge the existence of a 'God(s)', until proof of such can be provided to our satisfaction (see above), then we're not sinners! And you're not God, therefore you can't consider for someone who can't speak for himself. And why is that?
Because he doesn't exist.

Can I say, "ohmigawd?"
10/7/2009 8:25:08 AM
By God's hirsute asshole, you must be jesting!
Is that better?
Lol, I need to grow up.

Can I still say "Holy Shit?"
11/21/2009 8:27:48 PM
When your god asks me to stop saying something, I will stop, m'kay?
11/21/2009 8:31:18 PM
I can say what I damn well please, The Bible is public domain, none of you own it

I tend to say "by the gods", "by the old ones" or "gods above/below", actually. It makes more sense, in several ways. First, if one god exists, why can't others? Second, all major gods are quite old. Third, it sounds better and more unique than something that's been overused for millenia.

I always enjoyed exclaiming "By the Great, Mighty Satan!"
Yeah, i get funny looks, but it's worth it. Herman Melville wouldn't complain if we said "By Moby's Dick!" so why are you so upset by us using YOUR made up character? Grow up, you baby.
