The whole taking the Lord's name in vain is one of the Ten Commandments, but I remember in Sunday School the teacher told us that it's such a terrible thing to say something like "God damn it" because you are essentially giving God orders. You are demanding that he damn someone/something to Hell, and that's just presumptuous and arrogant. In a more obvious sense it's blasphemous because you are associating something that represents love and redemption with damnation I guess.

They are a rag-tag group of champions, this bunch, and with Harry, the near-perfect new god, they know they will dominate the day. Harry is a world laced with rivers of wizardly blood. He is ready.
