godverdomme Literally meaning "God damn it", godverdomme is a shortened version of the subjunctive phrase "God verdoeme het" ("may God damn it"). Verdomme ("damn") is a common variation. Religious people usually consider it extremely offensive and a gross violation of the third Commandment ("Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain"), and even among non-believers it is typically used to express great anger.
hel Hel ("hell") is not typically used in Dutch profanity. The word can be seen in some expressions, including "loop naar de hel" (literally: "walk to hell", analogous to "go to hell") and the archaic helleveeg ("evil woman from hell").
Jezus Christus Jezus Christus ("Jesus Christ") is, like godverdomme, an oath that takes its strength from the violation of the third Commandment, although it is slightly less offensive. Often just Jezus, or in the form of minced oaths: tjezus, jeetje, jesses, jasses etc.

Famous quotes containing the words religion, profanity and/or related:

    Is there any religion but this, to know, that, wherever in the wide desert of being, the holy sentiment we cherish has opened into a flower, it blooms for me? If none sees it, I see it; I am aware, if I alone, of the greatness of the fact. Whilst it blooms, I will keep sabbath or holy time, and suspend my gloom, and my folly and jokes.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Nothing, neither acceptance nor prohibition, will induce a child to stop swearing overnight. Teach your child respect for himself and others, that profanity can hurt, offend, and disgust, and you’ll be doing the best you can...And save your parental giggling over mispronounced curses for after the children’s bedtime.
    Jean Callahan (20th century)

    The near explains the far. The drop is a small ocean. A man is related to all nature. This perception of the worth of the vulgar is fruitful in discoveries. Goethe, in this very thing the most modern of the moderns, has shown us, as none ever did, the genius of the ancients.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
