    But I still say bless you. I just leave out the God part.

    •  I actually forced myself to get in the habit (0+ / 0-)

      many years ago to say "Gesundheit" instead of "Bless you" in response to sneezes, because it seemed hypocritical of me to be "blessing" someone when I was an agnostic, myself. Nor did I necessarily want someone else's "blessing" from their God when I sneezed, (but I don't make an issue of it, either, since I realize it's just someone trying to be polite).

      But I guess I'm really digressing from the original issue here...

      •  Say Deity bless you or buddha bless you (0+ / 0-)

        You'll freak out a wingnut or too.  

        I shall not rest until right wing conservatives are 4th party gadflies limited to offering minor corrections on legislation once or twice a year.
