We honor Radbod, a king of Frisia who was an early target for christian missionaries. Just before his baptism ceremony, he asked the clergy what fate his befallen ancestors who died loyal to Asatru. The missionaries replied that Radbod's ancestors were burning in Hell - to which the king replied: "Then I will rather live there with my ancestors than go to heaven with a parcel of beggars." The baptism was canceled, the aliens expelled, and Frisia remained free.
