My group doesn't like the player elimination aspect of the Damned card, but likes the concept of a card that produces a consequence. So, I'd like to propose the following as an alternative to player elimination for the Damned, that would still make you really not want to flip it.
The Damned: If the player of the Damned reveals his role, he must pay one coin to each other player expect for the player next in turn order. The player next in turn order may then swap (or not) the Damned card with any other player's card (like the Fool). If the Inquisitor or the Usurper select the Damned as target for their ability, the Inquisitor or the Usurper take the Damned's action instead and the former Damned becomes the new Inquisitor or Usurper.
