why do some things go G-d instead of God, is it some political correctness?

MSG, Stephen is Jewish and many Jews out of respect for God's name do not dare even to say His name.

It's a common practice in Judaism. This article should help explain a little. Check it out (it's not long at all):

Hope that helps. :)
