I personaly have no religion, but i do believe this statement might offend a vast part of mankind. And a lot of people use these words (especialy god, i think) rather often. I happen to know some peolpe with who any conversation lasting more than 5 minutes turns to something related to god. I think they would be pretty embarassed if they had no word for this, and needed each time to say something as "u know, that guy in the sky. well actualy he is not a guy, and not in the sky but u see what i mean." that pretty much longer than "god". :P
