Thinx 20: The name of Jesus

O sons of men, how long will my honour become a reproach? How long will you love what is worthless and aim at deception?" -- Psalm 4:2-3 NASV

Why is it that the name of Jesus, which is to me a badge of honour, is used almost worldwide as a word for cursing and swearing? What is it about that name that lends itself so well to being used as a filler, almost adjectivally? If you have to say something, why not say, "Oh, Buddha", or "Oh, Krishna", or "Oh, Mohammed"?

If Jesus and Christianity are so useless, why mention them at all?
