The thing is that in the game "Religious differences" means "dislike eachother for their religious differences and would more happily go to war with such 'Heretics'", not "Has a differing opinion on which of the X-Men is the coolest, but both think the X-Men are great and don't claim special revelation on X-Men Canon". It's a hostile modifier, but Polytheists largely believe in the things the other person believes as well. It's a personal preference.Well, yes. There weren't heresies in the sense we usually think of them. On the other hand, pagan religion was not unified or formalized, and the pagan heretics are meant to represent this.
What exactly, if anything, is it used for in the mod? Couldn't reduced Moral Authority simply be used as a weakening factor for the faith (unable to enact reforming decisions to modernize it, weaker resolve for Warrior Cults reducing available soldiers in provinces where it's built, worse relations for the ruler - being the High Priest of the kingdom's Ásatrúar - to the Temple Priests, etc.)?
