Calling it "The God Particle" is unhelpful as balls. The best way to put it is that it's basically responsible for matter having half of the properties that it does.
It should also be mentioned that it hasn't as such been "found." It's more along the lines of they have a lot more evidence that it exists now than they did before.
This is partly due to mass media, but something more concrete:
"The Higgs boson is the particle that is thought to give everything else in the universe mass, but that bit of theoretical physics is unlikely to be the reason most people have heard of it. Its theistic nickname was coined by Nobel-prize winning physicist Leon Lederman, but Higgs himself is no fan of the label. "I find it embarrassing because, though I'm not a believer myself, I think it is the kind of misuse of terminology which I think might offend some people."
It wasn't even Lederman's choice. "He wanted to refer to it as that 'goddamn particle' and his editor wouldn't let him," says Higgs."
