Minor reaction: I guess I've never paid extremely close attention, but the
spelling "Judas' priest" with apostrophe seems odd to me. As a fairly ordinary
taboo-deformation of "Jesus Christ" it seems entirely unnecessary (for
want of a better word) to make "Judas" possessive, either in the
orthography or in pronunciation with an extra syllable (a pronunciation
I've never heard, myself--anybody else heard it?).
