Why are 'flaming', 'bleeding' and 'bloody' considered rude in the U.K., New Zealand and Australia, when used out of their literal contexts?

I've heard they've all got religious origins, but what are they, please, and how rude are they all, in order, from the mildest of the three, moving up to the rudest of the three?

    They may have been considered rude back in grandma's day but not nowadays.

    They are not considered rude at all.  They are just expressions.  Every language has them.
