Appropriate choices of Names for speaking of G-d
The comment you mentioned is not blasphemous. "Blasphemy" refers to actually cursing G-d (G-d forbid!). "Blasphemous" describes a statement of blasphemy, and it also extends to describing statements that are extremely heretical in regard to G-d.

So the statement "Oh my G-d" is not blasphemous, but it is disrespectful to use a name of G-d in that casual and unnecessary manner.
Please see Post # 2 above in this thread, which explains this in more detail.

It is not a problem when idolaters use the names of their idols when they want to curse or speak disrespectfully, or in anger. It shows that the person has little awe or reverence for his or her idols.
