    Yes, but that was the spoken version. It seems to be you who wrote 'L-rd G-d'.

    Yes. It is "A way of avoiding writing a name of G-d, to avoid the risk of the sin of erasing or defacing the Name". But Rover made it clear and I will stick to his version.

    I thought your usage was rather charming.

    There are still some Jews who avoid writing "God" - they write G_d. Not many in my direct experience, but some. I've never seen a Christian do it.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I don't suppose Odessa Dawn is either a Jew or a Christian.

    I agree. I was just commenting that the practice is not completely outdated. (At least, not yet.)
