I'm not religious myself, but have some obsessive hangups about such things as Hell, so "damn" and "hell" are about the worst words from my point of view. What annoys me is when someone on TV says "God damn" but they censor the "God" and leave "damn" in, when I would prefer it the other way around! :D
