When they sneeze and somebody says bless you. Or if somebody says stuff about Christmas and jesus. Things like that.
I mean, I've heard of it, I've read people talking about it, but I've never actually come across something like that in real life. Surely people know bless you and things like that are just what people say, being polite, even atheists say it and I'm sure other atheists must get that. I like seeing things from others point of veiws then I can understand why they're offended, but I genuinely genuinely can't with this one.
So if you feel offended when you sneeze and somebody says bless you, please, explain why.

I am an atheist but i want to believe in Jesus and god.
Soo even doe i dont believe, i pray and respect the people who believe in them.
I know that if i pray most likely no one is gona hear it up there, but i still do it, because i have hope that the world is not that unfair and that there is a home for the good people up there. And when for exemple i help an old lady and she says "God bless you, young soul" i take it as an thank you and there is no reason to be offended. Now you can insult people with religion for exemple "God will cut you down", "You will go to hell because you are atheist", those are insults whatever they are based on religion or not, the people who use them want to offend you.1

Doesn't offend me at all. The bases of the comment is not usually meant as a religious poke. It's just being courteous.0
