Can you clear my doubt?

HOLY

English is not my mother tongue.

But I can speak, write and talk English.

Sometimes I can’t understand why certain words are incorporated inappropriately and used regularly.

My apologies for my ignorance.

Why the word ‘Holy‘ is used before swear words?

Examples holy shit, holy crop etc.

Does not this go against the third commandment?

Are we not demeaning the very Godly word ‘Holy’?

Readers can help me with a better understanding of this English.

Thank you for your visit.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

  1. There are other examples of religious-themed profanity in English, like damn and Jesus Christ (variations include Jesus, Christ, and Jesus H. Christ). French Canadian profanity is strongly Catholic-themed, with the most popular swear word being tabarnak (tabernacle).
