Well, most adaptions of the Matter of Britain downplay the directly holy stuff anyway so religion wouldn't come up as much as in the older stuff anyway.
The religion and unusual skin patterning are the only really troublesome aspects of the character I'd say. Just portray him as a nuanced and heroic character and it's fine.
Most of the time, if you avoid Unfortunate Implications and make the character nuanced, you're doing well when it comes to underrepresented characters.
Conversion is a tricky thing to handle
Itís probable that the Matter of Britain had it to promote Christianity and demote Islam so Iím not really gonna defend that
Individually, itís a very personal matter and fiction doesnít have that privilege or understanding that we canít really judge someone for choosing a different faith. So honestly it depends on how respectful or more accurately palatable you can pull it off to offend as least amount of people possible.
Speaking of King Arthur, Overly Sarcastic Productions did a video exploring the King Arthur stories and how they changed over the years, sometimes due to Christianization:
It has some interesting points, such as how things like the Holy Grail didn't really start out as "holy," the affair between Lancelot and Guinevere going from "Courtly Love" to "Sinful Adultery," Merlin going from being a druid to having demonic origins, Morgan going from a benevolent fairy into Arthur's evil half-sister, etc.
The most important takeaway, of course, is that Lancelot is proof that your "super-original-character-do-not-steal" can one day be an integral part of a work you're a fan of.

Really not cool with Sterling's tweets to Olivia Munn. It was okay up until a certain point.
Why is it that every damn time a sexual predator is outed, some people will go, "I didn't bother to look up what happened, but what about forgiveness??? What is and isn't forgivable??? People will disagree," or something to the affect of "It's a complicated issue, what's really right?" I see that way too damn much when sexual assault comes up, and I'm tired of it. No one should be letting child predators get a pass. He didn't run a red light, shoplift, or some other minor thing. He's a child molester.
What makes this worse is that Olivia Munn is a sexual assault survivor and that's the response she gets? The fact that he's the only one so far that's even tried to stick up for her in some way. Jesus. The man tried to rape a fourteen year old relative. It should not be this hard to come to Olivia's defense in getting him removed from a film.
Registered, too. Disavowing him entirely should be easy when thereís so much recorded evidence of his grossness, but the actors donít.
Jessica Gao, award winning writer on Rick and Morty will be writing a new comedy series for ABC.
The percentage of Latina women with speaking roles on t.v. this year was 7 percent. A "record high".
That is shockingly high. I imagine there had to be some outliers skewing the numbers.
And Latina could mean any race, so I wouldn't be surprised if a good chunk of them are white as well. i.e Alexis Bledel on Handmaid's Tale, white Argentinian.
Not saying white latinas don't deserve some rep, but it's not the most progressive win
White Latinoamericans never get their heritage recognized in Foreign media. I feel good for them personally.
Albeit, Non-white latinos have it pretty shit too.
What about males? I am positively hyped at that number
The group only does checks for females. Honestly I am not even sure how they are identifying Latinas, they did 4000+ scenes, so I hesitate to assume they were checking IM Db. Especially dubious as they lack a mixed race category and I donít see how they define Asian.
Olivia Munn Says Fox ďChastisedĒ Her for Going Public with The Predator Sex Offender Casting
Iím not surprised, given they waited two days before telling her they cut the guy out. Wouldnít be behind them to be acting difficult.
They cast a sex offender for a movie called "The Predator"?
...The jokes write themselves, honestly.
Believe me, people have taken advantage of the joke potential with things such as "They cut the predator out of The Predator" or "there's no predators in this movie."
It's not even a funny joke,too easy,too predictable,too lame
And the worst part is the possibility people only remember this fiasco because of the lame jokes. It's the same thing that happened with Dan Schneider and it looks like it's repeating itself.
What happened to Dan Schneider?
He was a producer of many live-action kids shows at Nickelodeon such as Drake and Josh and iCarly. While he parted with Nickelodeon on amicable terms earlier this year, it's long been rumored that he is a sexual predator towards minors on his shows, which was helped by Angry Beavers writer Michael Wright mentioning a pedophile worked there when the CEO stepped down this year. Where it ties into the jokes factor is that if child sex abuse in the entertainment industry or Dan are brought up, you won't have to go far to find people making horrible rhyme jokes that go "Dan (Insert pornographic phrase rhyming with his last name) Schneider."
Now that you mention it, the getting crap past the radar section of Victorious and iCarly are pretty big and a lot of them have to do with sexualizing teen characters.
ABC Reportedly Pulled Black-Ish Episode Because It Was Too Anti-Trump.
That makes me wonder if anyone at ABC ever watched an Ao S episode...
Well consider my curiosity piqued.
