Thanks Leighton Harris. What you said was interesting so thank you, but does that mean there is no difference between profanity and sacrilege? Are they the same thing, taking God's name in vain, or using it in swearing? If they mean the same, why is there two different words for it!

Check this out, it makes it clear as mud.
By the way. in Australia 'bloody' is seldom considered a swear word, if you asked someone if they wanted a beer, "bloody oath mate" is the reply.
