    We seem to hear the third phrase being shouted a lot in the news, however we never hear the first two. Hmm why is that?

    I know which one I'd rather not hear said on a plane...

    The last thing I want is some Bible thumper sat next to me the whole trip!

    I have never heard anyone shout Allahu Akbar.
    But I hear Bless You quite often.

    Allahu Akbar!

    Only time I hear that is during the Adhaan or prayer.

    Alhamdulliah. 😁

    I regularly hear the name of Jesus shouted with such fervour and passion that I believe my sexual partners must be cheating on me with a long haired guy who wears a toga and sandals.

    Why do people use Jesus's name in such a vein way?

    Regularly you hear people shouting "Jesus christ" when something goes wrong or "holy christ" or Goddamn.
    And some muslims shout "Allahu Akbar" when they engage in a terrorist attack.

    Why use your religion in such a bad manner?

    I am incredibly confused.

    Well you won't see "bless Budha" because Budha isn't a God and that blatantly isn't how Buddhist practice works at all. That's not to say that some of them haven't been being *******s:
