Apropos religion, a saying I really dislike is "god bless America."
When the implication is God bless America instead of or more than someplace (or everywhere!) else, as it usually is, I definitely dislike it.

If it's God bless America because we're talking about something specific to the U.S., and it doesn't imply that we're more deserving of that blessing than somewhere else, I'm okay with it. Unfortunately the latter instances are few and far between.
