    you could make a balanced unit, and it Would be funny.
    it is highly unlikely they will even touch anything related to Christianity.

    Hi-Rez is already under constant flak from some religious communities for their depictions of the Hindu Pantheon

    I can imagine that only being far worse

    That said, as I recall, their main point against Abrahamic pantheons is that many of their deities are not portrayed as warriors and so would not find themselves in the battlefield of the gods.

    Which for the most part, would be true. Heck, Jesus being a prime candidate, given that not only did he preach pacifism (Turn the other cheek and the like) but even when confronted with his own demise, he sacrificed himself rather than to cause harm to others.

    Though, there is a wealth of characters that WERE warriors, notably the angels (Also, Lucifer and the other fallen angels) were not only warriors but were apparently terrifying to look at (Hence they have to preface every visit with mortals with "Do not be afraid!"), though they're a lot less notable aside from a few (Such as Archangel Gabriel and of course Lucifer)

    Since... If it was all down to "Don't upset the Christians"... Then well... They literally gave Cernnunos a Satanic skin. Complete with goat head (Representing Satan since he apparently has a goat head for... Reasons...) and inverted pentagram across his chest (Pentagram = Pagan. Inverted Pentagram = Represents a goat head = Satanic)

    Literally no-one even batted an eye on that one.
    Preferred Gods:
    Aphrodite, Awilix, BAEllona, Da Ji, Discordia, Fenrir, Janus, Jing Bae, Nike, Nox, Skadi, Sol and The Morrigan.

    We need more kawaii skins!

    of course not most people were offended once again by the "Sexist" portrayal of a Female Goddess

    It's because Satan typically has goat features, which he somehow inherited from Pan. It's actually fitting that Cernunnos, a Welsh equivalent to Pan, gets the skin that references this; though I'd rather have Pan be an actual god in the game and have a skin like that, frankly.
