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?

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?

"Aren't you a little old for imaginary friends?" is one of my favorites.

Can you tell him to stop stalking me.

The legitimate evidence that any ' holy book ' is the words of a god given to men remains a constant zero!


The biblical jesus is just another man made fictional character, incapable of loving, doing or giving anything other than the man made writers make it do in their various story books, bible included.



A reply in Latin seems best. After all most of those who use the remark in question won;t know what it means anyway. Perhaps, "Quid est veritas" would do the job


I don’t know, I think I’d probably use something more along the lines of that old Dr Pepper TV commercial; I’d break into song with:

Jesus loves me, Satin loves me, Mama loves me, Daddy loves me, wouldn’t you want to come and love me too?

LOL - Good one!
Good answer...lol..

I just walk past those crazy people in the street. It's best not to make eye contact.
