Unfortunately at the same time, players might take in the game as what those gods and godesses stand for as what the videogame portrays instead of the real side of the religious scriptures.
It's a lose, lose situation for everyone at this point. I would love to play the title as I have a need for original game concepts, unfortunately a lot of hard work and effort might be destroyed.
I can understand where you are coming from with this. But on the other hand if players outside of those beliefs played the title and liked it, it would open there minds a bit and help them feel less alienated around peoples of those beliefs.
