I don't really see it that way, but then my experience may be a lot different than yours. To me it's a similar issue as "Merry Christmas" and making that a politically hot statement by reducing it to "happy holidays."
I don't feel a need to tip toe around people who say "God bless you," but that's me. The term has become more generic over time, (IMO) just as "Merry Christmas."
But as I say, that's just me. Your experience may be quite different than mine.
