Tao Bible - Ezekiel 39:7

So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.
~ King James version ~

Tao has no name to besmirch.
~ possible Taoist alternative ~
God seems overly preoccupied with his image. If he's not afforded the respect he thinks he's due, he becomes enraged.

Tao is a name invented by humans to refer to the Grand Mystery. The Grand Mystery is formless and desireless, so there is no image to protect.
