Priest I have heard many folks in the Pacific Northwest use "Judas Priest" as a "more polite" version of Jesus Christ in swearing. I've not heard it with the "Q", but would suspect that that is homologous to Jesus H. (for Horatio) Christ. This latter has currency at least as far back as Samuel Clemens youth, as he describes in his autobiography.
