there are also expressions to evade religious curses in German, like the ones whswhs mentioned below in English - like "Kruzitürken" for "Kruzifix" (cruci-turks / crucifix) or "Sakradi", "sapperlot" (and "Sacklzement" (little bag of cement)) instead of "Sakrament". There are many more. Most are from Southern Germany and Austria (catholic regions).
