I used to until I learned that it is derived from the belief that our souls left our bodies when we sneeze, and we were taught by saying G-d bless you protected them from having it snatched away from the evil one; making it a superstition. Sometimes I say it because it does seem rude not to[ if the person does not know the truth], but I am just going to have to explain it for now on. Superstition is for witchcraft and I am no longer a witch. Superstition is also a form of idol, which I do not want to use or believe in as well. Blessings..

Does it bother me when people say it? No I know they think they are being polite and religious by doing so. Blessings..
