You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain.  Words and names have power.  Taking the name of the Lord God in vain is a powerful expression of your thoughts towards the Lord.  Casual swear words cheapen our relationship with other people and with God.

When you know someones name you have a relationship with them.  It is important that your relationship with God be a good relationship.  Using the name of the Lord as a swear word is a poor way to have a good relationship.

God should be respected.  God should be worshiped, not used as a bad word.  God should be the focus of our lives, not the focus of a bad relationship.  We are created in the image of God and God loves us.  It is important that we respect the Lord; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
