Corna Gesture

The hand gesture most commonly known as "The Sign of the Devil" or the "El Diablo" sign has its origins in Italy where corna is Italian for horns and was actually used to ward off the evil eye.

In America, the sign is also associated with the University of Texas at Austin, especially in support of their sports teams known as the Longhorns. In this context, the sign is known as "Hook 'em Horns."

In addition, the sign also means "Rock on."

With so many different uses for one hand sign, and the notion among many people that the corna=devil worship, it's no wonder there are a ton of pages like this one, or this one, that purport that many public individuals are actually devil worshippers.
