I'm speaking about countries and cultures where Christianity is not the dominant religion.  Is there the same use of a deity in cursing or swearing as there is in Christian cultures using "the name of the lord in vain" type of thing?

I realize that sort of thing could get you killed in an Islamic culture.  I wonder if in ancient Rome saying, "Great Caesar's Ghost!" would yield the same result.

Have you seen Arab/Persian films? Profanity you wouldn't believe. I mean not to the Western world standards but still significant. No nudity, though. Unless it's a brief showing, from a distance, of a mans rear.
