Not sure where it started, but when the Messiah walked the real his real name was Yahshua Ha Mashiach. We get Jesus from poor transliterations of Ioesus>Iesus>Jesus.

But aside from that it is ridiculous when you think about it the way his name is used and the fact that they have to rehearse the sentence they are speaking in a film to get that slander out correctly. I could picture the film producer yelling CUT...I NEED YOU TO SAY JESUS H CHRIST, JESUS, or CHRIST WITH PASSION next time. But we can thank all these unbelieving Jews in hollywood for the rise of using Jesus name to swear anything bad.

I find myself guilty of using it every now and again and trying by 100% best to stop.

Hey Kids,... If you stub your toe, hear shocking news, witness a shocking event, or get furious at someone who crosses you, does an unconscious auto-pilot kick in that makes you blurt out with, "JESUS CHRIST!!", in derogatory desecration of Jesus' holy name?
"Jesus Christ" has become America's favorite cussword. I'd like to say that someone like the Apostle Pete or Paul started this cuss-custom, but lack solid proof of such; although, their fiery explosive characters could have us imagining them "Jesus Christ"-ing amidst some shocking event, like smashing a finger with a hammer or tripping down the stairs.
I think it really started with one of Shakespeare's plays, where a character notably blurts out in anger with, "Jesous Christous", or some such. If true, that would give it a flair of high-flatterin' poetic air!
In Spielberg's movie, "Super 8" four middle school boys are helping the US military fight off an attack by space monsters. while doing so, those boys are using cuss words in about every sentence. I rewound the video and began counting how many time they profanely abused the "Son of God" with "Jesus", "Jesus H. Christ", "Jesus F*ckin' Christ", "Christ", Along with a goodly number of "Goddamns!" I quit counting after about a hundred times.
Steven Spielberg's purposeful directive script-abuse of the "Jesus" name underscores the fact that "Jesus Christ" etal is America's favorite cussword!
Imagine "Krishna" becoming the favorite curse in India; "Buddha" evolving into gross profanity in Tibet; "Allah" being an obscenity in the Middle East. Why then is "Jesus Christ!" the favorite swear word in America??,... not only in daily conversation, but in major literature, television, movies, and (now) ever prominently employed on web sites?
Most cusswords, like "F*CK" or "SH*T", derived from bodily functions related to urination, defecation, sexual intercourse, or contempt for another human being. Why, then this leap from excrement and sex to the most sacred religious name at the heart of Christianity, holy to the majority of Americans and some 2 billion Christians worldwide?
"Jesus Christ", INDEED,... heads the list of vulgarities endemic to American culture!
Sh1yy-yit, and,... JESUS F*CKIN' CHRIST!" ... What Gives, here?

It's obvious as to why...

Do not take the name of the Lord in Vain...
