I've heard quite a few people get upset or offended when people say this. Now, I have two questions, First, why get upset? Whats the big deal? And Secondly, is it still as upsetting if the person using this term is of a different faith (and therefore has a "different" God?)Answer Question

I remember a pastor who was teaching my Sunday School class telling us that we shouldn't ever use anything even close to "god" or "Jesus" in exclamations or oaths. He said we shouldn't say "jeez" or "gosh" or even "golly", because they are too close to "using the Lord's name in vain". Oh--he also said we shouldn't say "dang it!" or even worse. . . "gosh darn it" because the implication is there. In "dang" and "darn" his concern was that the words were intended to be substitutes for "damn", which is something that he believed that only God could do--so by uttering those words, you were usurping his authority. . . or something like that.. Yup. It's true. That's why I like the word "shit". No one can take religious issue with that word.
Just kidding. I actually think "shit" is kind of gross, when I really think about it. . .

I don't say it, but I don't upset if others do.
