Oooh, Ooooh! I wanna be a Vicar! (Well, technically, I'd be a Vicaress, but still...)

In all honesty, this sounds just fine to me... the whole totem expansion just doesn't really match the theme. It's a strained metaphor1. And as for the "people might be offended by christian themes," uhm, guys, they're already offended and left when they saw the whole monastery theme.

Update: Uncle! Uncle! Yes, I do know that it was tilly who was complaining about overly christian themes in the suggestions for new levels.
For reference, I am a significantly non-christian person. However, I still think that we are already on a christian theme, so why are people getting pissy now?
On the other hand, someone else in this thread suggested some religious titles from some other religions. I'd personally be just as happy if we used some of those, if the community decided that we really do need to add more levels.

1 Yes, it's already strained, but this is a totally orthagonal strain.

[Corion]: Hi marto!
[Corion]: The fun show at $work continues, as The Big Project is now in its second week of frantic live-bugfixing and weekend releases where nobody knows what went live. Nothing has been tested anyway.

Corion watches from the sidelines. Or rather, from behind, as my system only gets output from that process and my programs adhere strictly to the GIGO design principle.
[erix]: ah, that's nice to hear Corion :)
[Corion]: erix: Yeah, the sad thing is that all I can do is document things, so I can point fingers when the auditors come :-/
[Corion]: "I'm here to open tickets and point fingers. And I'm all out of tickets."
[erix]: didn't Sybase have pretty good auditing? :) (this is a vague memory)
[erix]: (culprits often are upstream of db of course)
[Corion]: Ah, how I missed it. After some years, I revisit slashdot on a click-bait link, and it provides the usual humor instantly: "I didn't know Drupal had rules for sex. It must be a plug-in"
