The expression supposedly dates back to the time of the bubonic plague. Sneezing was one of the early signs of infection, so to say "bless you" after someone sneezed was just a way of saying I hope you dont have the plague.

It's really not that big of a deal, it's not like you're making some big public pronouncement of faith. Think about it this way, when/if you say "goddamn it" after stubbing your toe or something similar, are you actually demanding god curse the offending table? It's just a turn of phrase ya know?

Buncha goddamned angsty teenagers I tell ya.
