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.
