Would you be offended, should I stop saying it ?

The guy also uses the name of our Lord in vain all the time, when cursing. What would you suppose I should do ? Looking for some guidance
Make a complaint to your manager about him taking th ename of your lord in vain as it's also offensive to you. Works both ways.

He is taking the piss as if he really is an atheist then the term GOD has no meaning to him. So how can he be offended?

If he is so easily offended by some one saying "God Bless", don't worry,, he ( and people like him) will find something to be offended by... Its what make's him happy.....

I'm at best agnostic and I really don't care what deity you decide to sign off with.

I'm a life long atheist and I say for God's sake as a polite version of ffs and if an older person says God bless I always say God bless you back. This is not an atheist this is dick who happens to be an atheist. On behalf of athiests I can say we had a meeting and we apologise for his actions.

Sounds like an insufferable arsehole that should be avoided at all costs.

Get you a water pistol. Fill with holy water.

Try it from behind. If they spontaneously combust and collapse into a pile of ashes, problem solved.
