I am curious about opinions on this from both sides. Is a teacher out of line for telling a student (young elementary school age, not teenage) that using the phrase "oh my god" is not appropriate?
I don't think that it is out of the teachers realm to tell a student that's inappropriate. As long as it was done in a professional manor.

No, the teacher would not be out of line. Children need to be taught to respect names that people hold reverence for. It doesn't matter whether you believe in God or not, that's your right, but the teacher has the right to ask the child not use God's name in a disrespectful manner. Obviously, it offended her.
I find it highly offensive when people say "God da**." I wouldn't say "Allah da**" because I know it would offend Muslims. I wouldn't say "Buddha da**" because I wouldn't want to offend Buddhists. It's a matter of respect, regardless if you worship that particular deity or not. We all have to learn to be tolerant of one another's various belief systems, regardless of what we believe ourselves.
