It's not like I wish to have them beheaded. Seems to be the standard response when I give a little bit to a pan-handler. I even let them keep it.

don't believe everything you think

Homeless guy said it to me yesterday when I gave him some money. Didn't bother me at all. It is similar to a thank you in my eyes in that instance.

There are other times where you know it is someone religiosity shining through. There it bothers me a little bit but at the end of the day, just words that are well intentioned. I certainly wouldn't respond negatively.

I don't mind their "gawd bless you" so long as they don't mind my "gawd damn it"!

You mean if I sneeze or something?

I don't mind it -- in fact I rarely think about it. It's just a rote thing people do often without much or any thought.

God bless you - if it's said cause I did something nice I take it as a well wish and gratitude and smile. If it's bless your heart... two can play that game.

Doesn't bother me.

Now when someone says, "I'll pray for you", that's a different story.

Had an inmate yesterday tell me she'd pray for me. Told her I'd rather she do something useful with her time.

RE: How do "You" feel when somebody says god bless you?
it's a just kind gesture that's tradition. I say it and I'm an atheist. I don't sweat it.

I also say "Jesus Christ!" when various things happen. It doesn't mean I believe in Jesus. It's just tradition, culture, upbringing, today's lingo, etc.

How do you feel when a person sends you a email and you don't know them and they don't know you but they put inside of the message's ending "God bless you" Do you suddenly feel the need to say you don't believe? but thanks anyways. Maybe i'm just a jerk Evil_monster No i actually don't think i am, i just think that i feel kinda like somebody's assuming i'm christian.
What do you feel like when this happens?

I don't think it has ever happened to me outside of the Theotrolls on the forum... Consider Does it count as ironic that an atheist forum increased my exposure to the religious?

But I do tend to get annoyed any time 'god' is mentioned in a reverent manner.
