All this English transliteration of Hebrew words makes for tiresome reading. Why not just say it in English.

God Himself was the author of all languages at Babel - Hebrew itself doesn't have any special holiness of its own. And even if it does, then by that rule it would lose it anyway by writing it in English wouldn't it?

As for spelling God as 'G-d' - the Apostles, when writing their Epistles in a non-Hebrew language, used no similar expression. They just wrote 'God' (in Greek). 

Look, no matter how much you try to venerate the unchanging, eternal nature of the Law, the fact is it's over.

There's probably nothing more obvious in history than that (aside from Christ's death, burial and resurrection of course)!
