DEMONIC EXPRESSIONS: Some of the worst cuss words are not what you think

By Father Jojo Zerrudo

Be careful with words because they are not as innocent as they seem to be. A friend sent me a book entitled A Message of Hope: Confessions of an Ex-Satanist: How to Protect Yourself from Evil written by Deborah Lipsky who, for many years, lived as a prisoner of a satanic cult. Browsing through the pages, I came across this part which spoke of expressions that are not meaningless but actually attract demons from hell. I would like to share this part for our guidance: 



1. “G** DAMN IT”

In this phrase you are directly asking that the Creator of the universe to curse someone or something into hell for eve. It is said in an atmosphere of anger where no love is present, only hate. If you derive some sort of satisfaction from using this expression, that satisfaction means you are under the influence of demonic thought tampering. If saying it gives you a sense of power, you are trapped into the mindset of demons. To a demon, this selfish unholy request means that you have the audacity to ask God to commit an evil act on your command. In essence you are ordering God to do your dirty work!


By saying this you are actually pronouncing a form of a curse on someone else because you are wishing for them to die. When I was in school, I was constantly bullied. There was always a group of girls who would publicly humiliate me and then tell me to drop dead. As I tried to walk away, I would either trip in my nervousness or drop my books. That made them cackle in delight and hurl even more insult my way such as “loser” or “moron”. To actually feel delight in someone else’s pain is a “character trait” of demons. To laugh at someone else’s misfortune after telling them to drop dead is an obvious tell-tale sign that they are under the influence of a cluster of demons.  Having “friends” or people support or encourage such behavior means there is a cluster of demons at work within that group.

3. “I SWEAR TO G**”

This expression means that you are making an unbreakable vow in front of God regarding your innocence. Jesus himself warned against swearing to God in Matthew 5:33-37, “Again you have heard that it was said to the people long ago, do not break your oath, but keep oaths you have made to the Lord. But I tell you, do not swear at all: either by heaven, for it is God’s throne; or by the earth, for it is his footstool; or by Jerusalem for it is the city of the Great King. And do not swear by your head, for you cannot make even one hair white or black. Simply let your ‘yes’ be ‘yes’ and your ‘no’ be ‘no’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.”

To use this expression to hide behind a false innocence is disgusting. Not only are you lying but you are manipulating the other person’s trust by getting them to believe that God is vouching for your innocence. This expression is a favorite of demons everywhere.


Mainly this phrase is used in magic tricks but every now and then I hear it when someone says something to the effect, “There is a lot of ‘hocus pocus’ going on there.” No Catholic should ever use this phrase as it is a derogatory corruption referring to the Eucharist: “Hoc est Corpus” or “This is my Body”. Protestants back in the Middle Ages used this corrupted term to mock the Holy Eucharist…They would hurl this insult not only at clergy but also Catholic lay people on their way to Mass.

(Also the Hokey Pokey, turn yourself around, yes, mocking the Consecration, and the priest turning around at the Orate Fratres – NVP)

5. “KISS MY A**”

I saved this expression last because it is especially vulgar. Sadly it is such a common expression in our society today spoken to show defiance. It is better known to Satanists elsewhere as the “oscularum infame” or “Kiss of Shame”. During the traditional black mass this was considered a symbolic requisite towards earthly success. Participants would literally kiss the bare behind of the devil (usually the high priest conducting the mass). Nothing gets a cluster of demons charging headlong towards somebody faster than using excerpts from the satanic mass.

  1. Thanks Mark. I knew of the first four, but not the last one; kiss my a**. Thankfully, I don’t say any of these. I need to work harder though on not lapsing into the old habit of occasionally using the very versatile F bomb….as wtf seems so appropriate a response to the craziness today.

    1. Yes, I agree with this entirely. We’ve grown up (those of us who are Gen X and younger) only getting the “Ned Flanders Style” explanation for why certain words and phrases are inappropriate. Here, we see a priest issue a much better clarification on the matter. While the first three or four are more obvious, that last one is not well known. You don’t get this kind of instruction from the Church of Nice or the Bergoglian Empire.

  2. Thank you for this excellent and informative post. This information needs to be more widely known. It’s literally enemy intelligence we can use in the spiritual battle.
    Blessed be the Holy Name of Jesus.

    1. The devotion to the Holy Face of Jesus is a reparatory practice for profanation of the Holy Name, Holy days and offenses to Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. Our Lord appeared to Sr. Marie de St. Pierre in the 19th century in France to request it. The Martin family of Ste Therese of Lisieux was one of the first to take it up through the inspiration of Leo DuPont. Plus IX proclaimed it as a Divine Work destined to save modern society. There are many materials available to assist in making these devotions. One more weapon in our arsenal against the demons.

  3. I have heard that the addition of “bloody” to expressions comes from Our Lord’s scourging and is mockery. Can anyone confirm this?

    1. I can’t confirm it – except by common sense. In saying it, one literally calls for blood to be spilled or sprayed. The reference could be to war (men dying – British in WW1), to Jesus, or perhaps to animal sacrifices (be they satanic, pagan or merely Old Testament).
      It’s amazing how many expressions invoke-or-mock the Lord. I’m a bit on the fence about them.
      Let’s start with the most obvious, “Jesus Christ!” Literally, you’re invoking the Lord / asking Him to come into the situation. Yay.
      Except…. Most people don’t mean it that way at all. They say it in bitterness and therefore in mockery. Double-un-yay.
      Now guess how many expressions are euphemistic variations of this one? A lot. “Sheesh” is a cutesy I’m-not-really-saying-it corruption of Jesus, for example. “Zounds”, that people occasionally still say for an old-timey effect, is a similar deal on “By God’s Wounds!”

    2. I thought the phrase “bloody” was a mockery of devotion to Our.Lord”s Precious Blood (in general not just during His Scourging). I read something about that a long time ago. Someone please correct me if I’m wrong.
      I think the main point here is that these five bring demons on the run, more than other cuss words do. Our Lady of LaSallette mentioned the profanation of the Holy Name as bringing punishment down on our heads so long ago. It’s so much worse now!

  4. Mark – I got one more for you: “Money quote” or “Money shot”.
    Dr. Mazza uses it all the time, and Ann B. occasionally. I cringe every time.
    It comes from pornography (guess what – use your imagination perhaps). And was popularized by the big gay writer Andrew Sullivan. Friends don’t let friends use it.

  5. “But let your speech be yea, yea: no, no: and that which is over and above these, is of evil.”
    Matthew 5:37

  6. Do you listen to amazing Polly? Virus fairy tales is very good as is all her work. Sorry I don’t know how to forward or embed Thanks for your work

  7. I was wondering how “Oh my God” or even OMG would rate among this list. My country’s language isn’t english but the above seem to get said a lot especially by the young. There was a young radio commentator I had to endure on the radio since she said it so many times in one sentence as some cool buzz word. There are also my nephews who are being influenced by friends and popular culture from youtube videos and games.

    1. Again it’s literally invoking the Lord God in a situation, which ought to be good, except most people do it theatrically or with a self-centered intent to get attention or even to mock God, which is bad, “taking the Lord’s name in vain”. I couldn’t say what the demons make of it.

  8. Great info to have. Also realize when actual magicians or those who played them on TV in the sixties used to complete the Hocus Pocus phrase with…Dominocus…so it was always “Hocus Pocus Dominocus”…which is blatantly blasphemous and I’m shocked it was used and allowed back then.
