It is indeed an interesting passage and probably the most quoted from the avalon manual.
Remember also however that apart from the creator of the land, mortals do not exist because of gods, we exist despite them.
Don't be afraid to have character or to stand up to gods. That said, there is really no call to be suicidally idiotic and offensive about it.
Gods are worthy of respect but you *choose* who you worship and offer to, and you choose who to oppose. Lets have a little less of the general sycophantic claptrap.
