    I am a decorator, and in my home it has a southwestern flare along with asian.  I have a copper small Budda next to my ocrhad plant it gives tha nice flare of asian.  I lady came over and told me I must remove this ameditly or I will keep have bad things happen to me.  I said you nuts, I have my rosery, my cross and Jesus in my home,  Yet, this person believes that I am honoring that decoration.  Now, I'm not a saint but this is not about that, I want to answer this person in the proper manner

    A proper reply would be: F@#K OFF, Witch-lady!  When I want to decorate with "it's none of your business", I'll look you up for advice.

    I would tell her that her comments are offensive and that you are not confused about who you serve. Where you understand her concern, you find her comments about her lack of knowledge on the decorations in your home to come off as a little disrespectful. Another thing that seems to work is using analogies to make her see that she may have things in her home that could be misunderstood as idoltry as well and give examples. Usually after using this tactic people begin to think differently and open their minds.
