Opus anagrams

Tomorrows Opus comic strip has more anagrams. It gives the anagram of GOD as DOG and The Prophet Mohammed as "Hmmm Heap red-hot poet". Except that the author, Berkeley Breathed scratches out the latter as too offensive for newspapers to print. Weird. I am putting it here just in case you are trying to figure out the joke.

A reader comment says:
Breathed wimped out big time, and not just by scratching it out. Consider the alternative anagram of "Hemp, harem do tempt, oh!"
Another comment says:
My daughter came up with "Pope -- the hammered moth"
She is using as extra E. Maybe she meant "Pope -- the hammer'd moth" or "Pop the hammered moth".

Ah. Thank you. That was bugging for the past half hour.

There were so many possibilities!
