The standard practice seems to be avoiding saying the word "Jesus" due to the halacha of שם רשעים ירקב, but some people seem to be willing to say it. Is there a heter for this? (Also, would this heter apply to "Buddha", "Krishna", etc.?)

    Is that really standard practice in all communities?

  • @DoubleAA Not sure. I was only basing it off of my own experiences.
