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?

How about, "I see you have been hallucinating again."

I thought the question was tongue in cheek and I replied accordingly. A more serious answer would be either:
I'm not a believer but I appreciate YOUR warm feelings for me.
Or:
Are you sure this is a conversation you want to have with me?

The Flying Spaghetti Monster loves you.

What is the best response to "Jesus loves you"?


Lurch - Whats the best response to 'Jesus loves... by jupiter869

Lurch always DID have a way with words...

Right Loren - like Lurch we could just answer with a groan. That would be awesome.

Yes I know, That's why I had to find a new lawn service.  I'm not into guys.

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 bless you."

Not bad ... not bat at all!

thats hilarious!
Depends how feisty youre feeling... Many times I'll just kind of giggle and say "thank you", or "I'm sure he does." If I'm feeling frisky though I'll throw in the ",but I'm an atheist.", I love throwing it at them like that just to see if I can spark a debate... Be ready though, they may get chippy, so be informed!
