3. This was the topic du jour in GD not too long ago.
Not sure if any one religion or belief says this. I've come across it with a lot of African American Christians.

I figure you ever take it as a compliment or simply a "meh". I can't see getting offended over it, even if you don't have a religious belief.

Now a "eff you and your mama" might come across a little differently.

5. I agree with you. The people who say it have no ill intentions behind it.
They mean well. I can't see getting upset about that. It doesn't hurt anyone.

4. Have a blessed day

Seriously, tomorrow is Monday, so the odds are against you. I hope you beat the odds and get an assload of blessings instead.

6. Weird thing to say. I assume it's part of the war on Christmas.
Nah -- not really.

7. Usually fundamentalist Christians
Edited on Sun Dec-14-08 10:43 PM by Southpawkicker
who think that all Americans should be Christianized since we ARE A CHRISTIAN NATION AND WE ALL SHOULD FOLLOW THE LORD JESUS CHRIST AND LET NO OTHER GODS BE BEFORE US!!!!!!!!!!


:P

Have a blessed day, really :D

8. you can be blessed by almost anything
although i assume she intended a divine source.

that said, it's pretty generic.
