Reciting Blessings and Saying "Amen"
I would just like to reiterate that there is nothing wrong with a Gentile saying "Amen" when he or she hears a Jew making an exclusively Jewish blessing. For example, if a Noahide is visiting a synagogue, he or she can say "Amen" to the blessings said by a Jew when he is called up for a public reading from a Torah scroll (and it is only allowed for a Jew to be called up for this). "Amen" is simply an affirmation for what was said. A Noahide, too, can affirm that G-d should be blessed for giving Israel the Torah - for without it he would be left without the Noahide Code.
