Excellent idea. Bibles, Chalices, and Crucifixes multiply the usefulness of this proposal.

They can be used in almost any era as Catholic monks more or less wore the same garb for centuries. Painting them up and using them as cultists for the elder gods is up to the modeler.

I find that the extremes are the exception not the rule. I can't be persuaded that it would make any difference in sales whether or not Christian crosses are included or excluded. I'm guessing the overwhelming majority wouldn't care and since we want to sell to the majority why make a fuss for a few fanatics. Additionally bad press isn't always a bad thing, at least people are talking about it. And when people talk information spreads and interest increases from both camps. I remember local Christian factions protesting the Harry Potter movies. Did that stop the Harry Potter movies from making a mint, I think not. If anything I'm guessing it inspired some to go and see the film just in spite of the protest.
I personally don't care if it has crucifixes or 8 pointed stars of chaos, or tentacles effigies of the great cathulu. So I won't continue the debate
