* CrystalDragonJesus: The church borrows many christian terms like "saints," "archbishop," "cardinal," and "cathedral." The cathedral itself resembles a Christian cathedral.

The Church also has commandments and one of them is specifically about respecting and obeying one's parents, and an NPC remarks that the Goddess once used to send wicked people to burn in a place equivalent to the Christian hell.
