Respect Me, Respect My Beliefs.
This is a depiction from the 1st century BCE of the god Cernunnos, who was also known as the 'Horned One' because of the antlers sprouting from his head. Cernunnos was worshipped throughout much of Western Europe as the god of nature, i.e. creation by another name, but the early christians claimed he was the Devil or Anti-Christ because he posed a threat to the claims that they made for their god.
So, next time some whingeing christians, jews, or muslims bleat on about respecting their beliefs, tell them that you worship Cernunnos and demand that they show you the same forbearance and toleration that they demand for themselves!
Go on, expose them for the hypocrites that they are. Should be good for a laugh, at least.
