"The best response so far for me to "Jesus loves you!" is to simply look that person in the eye and ask "Who?" Stumps people. The look on their faces is hilarious. This response also works for "God bless." or "God…"

Hello Gary :)  Glad you made it to the Nexus!  Thanks for the add :)  ALWAYS nice to know there are others of like mind, near by!  I know exactly how you fee my dear.  I'm your neighbor in Cleveland!  I will tell you college will be a great experience for you to just get you away from all of the dogma and superstition present here in TN.  Nice to see younger folks like yourself with open minds and not forgetting how to use them :)

Hello Gary Curtis. You are a brave young man, and the only sensible one in your family.Welcome to this friendly meeting place where freethinking non-theists recognise that religion is a huge deception aimed at controlling vulnerable superstitious people, including defenceless children; and
how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and even longer.
