I find it strange that 20% of people think 'Jew' is a very severe swear word.

I don't get how "God" is a swear word. I don't like people who take religion too seriously.

I agree to an extent. A friend told me who went to kilroy studios to be in his audience that during the show they werent allowed to use religious undertones to express their opinions....we live in the 21st century for goodness sake if anything its a form of figurative language. Its quite ironic he actually got sacked or resigned for his extremism....
(hope you enjoy my anecdote there)
