Does make me mad at all. Slightly irritated, if indeed they are being used in a proselytizing-type context. But other than that, no particular feelings.
Try to realize it's all within yourself / No-one else can make you change / And to see you're really only very small / And life flows on within you and without you. / We were talking about the love that's gone so cold and the people / Who gain the world and lose their soul / They don't know they can't see are you one of them? / When you've seen beyond yourself then you may find peace of mind / Is waiting there / And the time will come / when you see we're all one and life flows on within you and without you. ~ George Harrison
I don't mind if I hear the name jesus said as a swear word, because that's all it is to me now. I do get irritated when some christians preach about jesus because they are so sure a fictional character (I say this because his existence is yet to be proven) is a cast iron fact. I hate religion, so any reference to it, whatever word is used, does grate on me. This is because all the words you mentioned in the list I associate with a lie that has been responsible for the deaths of millions, and ruined millions more lives. But I used to believe it all, so I get the appeal.
idk, i have some friends name jesus but its a pretty cool name the only thing that really bothers me is when someone is un willing to listen to others or already have their mind set (almost the entire population of the world, and yes atheists to)
If your not after beauty, then why are you even drawing breath?
What irritates me is that i was raised in school and stuff, to fear NOT believeing in him, or id go to hell, and be tortured with my worst fear. Why does a religion have to scare you into believing them? even now i hate talking bad or in disbelieve in God because of the fear built in me by priest and teachers

It seems that the name Jesus stirs up alot of controversy and "feelings",
what are those feelings?
why is it upsetting?
The name of Jesus is evoking diverse feelings in me. On the one hand I remember Hellish people - Christians who do not believe in him too much, but they pretend that they do all through their life. On the other hand I recall a feeling that the connection of a man to a Jesus Christ - to the ideal of someone like him who is in the Heaven - really works. But probably to a different Jesus Christ that how he is interpreted by Christians. More exactly to several Beings who are like him.
