You're f'ing kidding me right?
That's funny. I used to say "God bless you" in response to a sneeze. When I set aside organized religion, I felt strange saying this, but felt impolite not saying anything. So now I say "bless you" without the name of the almighty in there.

I consider "bless you" to be a non-religious colloquialism and a basic form of etiquette.
I saw an article about that.

Because I said so. 
That's the public school system for ya.

That's Politically Correct [Pathetic] idiots for you.
Not to be "that guy" but - If the blessing was in Muslim the PC teachers wouldn't say shit.
May Allah bless you with many fertile, willing goats!

He already did, bro. He already did.

My response would have been go fuck yourself. Are they going to shut down BBQ spots next? This is America not the Middle East, we eat fucking pork! Vermont is so full of liberal hippies, I would love to see that woman try to pull that stunt in Tennessee or South Carolina.

Quote:A sign advertising the bacon at a Vermont diner has been taken down after a Muslim resident complained about the sign on the Internet and sparked to a massive backlash campaign towards Sneakers Bistro.

In June, in return for taking part in a local volunteer initiative to plant flower beds in the city’s traffic medians, the diner was awarded a sign on a lamp post that said “Yield for Sneakers Bacon.” A woman took issue with the sign, calling it insensitive to those who don’t eat pork, according to WPTZ.

The woman’s objection, which she posted online, prompted several Facebook and Yelp comments calling on Sneakers Bistro to take down the sign. The diner’s owners contacted the woman to apologize and tell her the sign has been removed.

“We are here to serve people breakfast, not politics,” the owners wrote in a separate Facebook post over the weekend. “We removed the sign that was located on public property as a gesture of respect for our diverse community.”

The mayor of the town, Winooski, Vt., commended the diner for taking down the sign. “The cool part of living in a diverse community is that it’s not always comfortable,” Mayor Katherine “Deac” Decarreau told the television network. “It’s a fascinating place with lots of opportunities for conversation. The city has to pay attention to a lot of factors while acting within what we can regulate.”

Winooski is “a fabulous artist mecca,” Mayor Deac has told the Center for Media and Democracy. “Winooski has always welcomed immigrants,” she said, “including my ancestors who spoke only French in 1835 when they arrived here.”
If you're that insecure about your ideology then you have no right to complain to anyone about anything.
