** In the episode "Today I Am A Clown", Krusty is under the impression that not having had a Bar Mitzvah celebration means he is not Jewish. At the age of 13, a Jewish male is expected to have been educated enough to be personally responsible for following the commandments. Whether or not the coming of age is marked by a ceremony makes no difference to the status of being a boy or man, let alone being fully Jewish or not at all.

* ''Series/{{Quanico}}'': A cadet says his mother died in the hospital because his father refused to allow a blood transfusion for as he was a Christian Scientist. However, the opposition to blood transfusions is part of Jehovah's Witnesses beliefs, not Christian Scientists' (Christian Science encourages believers to use their healing practices, but still does not forbid regular medicine).

* PlayedForLaughs in the {{poker}} tournament movie ''The Grand'', where Larry Schwartzman shows up to a table wearing a hijab and claiming to have converted to "Muslam". This was a scare tactic against "Sob Story" Barry Blausteen, an expert at psyching out his opponents who happened to be Jewish.

**Though the Book of Common Prayer does include a Psalter (The Book of Psalms laid out for communical recitation). Seems they might have a passing familiarity with Anglicanism? The Book of Revelation/Psalm thing... yeah that's a big screw up.

** On top of everything mentioned above, such action would very likely bolster the Protestants. Some fringe Protestant groups consider the Pope an Antichrist and most Protestants think of him as of usurper, so the plan could be met with 'see, you papists, we were telling you for 500 years not to trust the guy in the Vatican', not to mention that one part of the popular Protestant dogma (Rapture) would appear as a real, observable phenomenon.

** Actually happens in-universe in MageTheAscension. The celestial chorus ostensibly derive their power from religion (whatever that faith happens to be), but being mages they're either tapped into a higher realm of reality and steeped in gnostic comprehension of how things really work (if you're a mage) or crazier than a sack of weasels fighting a beach ball full of hamsters on a tight-rope over a lava pit (if you're anyone but a mage). Since a mage's power is essentially the universe [[RealityWarper agreeing with her interpretation of how it works]] wherever she's looking, Chorus members' often loose or extremely dramatic interpretations of scripture and divine action tend to _stick_. This is a huge headache for all of the various entities in the World of Darkness that have to tiptoe carefully around mortal belief structures, such as vampires and spirits.

* ''VideoGame/PonyIsland'': Asmodeus is the demon king of lust, but he doesn't seem all that interested in love or sex over [[spoiler: testing your wits in the most horrendous way possible]]. Also, Beelzebub is another name for Satan, in this game they're different demons altogether.
** Makes a bit more sense if you connect Lucifer's statement immediately before the Beelzebub encounter. [[spoiler:You get to the mostly incomplete ending of Adventure Mode, and he says that HE is the last boss. He's just correct FromACertainPointOfView.]]

* ''[[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheTempleOfDoom Indiana Jones and The Temple Of Doom]]'', as well as the older film that inspired it, ''[[Film/GungaDin Gunga Din]]''. Both present Kali as the "Goddess of Death" when in fact there is no such thing in Hinduism. Kali is the DarkActionGirl Persona of Shakti, Shiva's wife, making her one of the BIgGood deities of the Hindu Pantheon, and she takes on this form to ''punish evil''.
