I live in a very religious town, so I hear this saying about 2 or 3 times every week, whether it be to me or someone near me.  I usually don't respond when it is said to me, but what do you think a good response would be?

Why is it that, even when we're amongst ourselves, there are always people like you who are willing to take offense on their behalves? We're joking,yes. We don't expect this individual to actually use these responses...but joking is better than getting angry. I'll continue to make jokes and stay sane, thank you.

Agreed Michael.

If I were gay and I thought he was hot I might let him if he wore a condom.

I agree with the comment "Really, did he tell you this? Wow!" I had a religious woman come up to me one time and tell me that SHE loved me! I mean, how are you supposed to respond? I just mumbled 'thank you'. And left it at that.
Next time ask her if she's busy later?

"Show Me" might have had better impact.

>.> I got introduced to this video the other day by a believer who found it entertaining.

"Bless his heart."

 

Smile and keep walking.

I am an atheist and I am curious about what you really mean.

Go to youtube and search for comedians using "Bless his heart" in their act.

 

It has come to mean, in a nut shell, the person in question is mentally simple, perverse, or otherwise defective. We use it in my corporate culture, because we can say it without getting into HR trouble, but everyone knows what we mean.

 

Sorry, if I was obscure.

"Jesus loves you."

 

So does your mom. :D

I thought of some more:

 

He love me long time.

 

I believe that's pronounced Heysus.

 

Aren't you a little old for imaginary friends?
