Oh Purple (sigh). The band Judas Priest took their name from the saying, which is a non-blasphemous way of exclaiming 'Jesus Christ'. Exactly the same way that Irish people say 'Feck', as a polite way of saying the F word.

Another time-warp oopsie: In the episode where Radar is alleged to have fathered a Korean woman's baby, Col. Henry Blake utters, "Oh, Judas Priest, what now?" The rock group Judas Priest wasn't formed until 1969.
