Anyway for a series that consider Christianity as a force of good and revolves around it this animation sure put Christianity in a bad light which goes against the core concept of Castlevania good and evil powers.
Christianity not so much.  Christians (notably fire and brimstone ignoramuses and institutionalized, politically influential religious organizations and those that abuse that institutional power), sure, and I do agree that the show is a bit obtuse with its criticism but it's not exactly a subtle show in general.

- Sypha Belnades has turned from a Pure Christian Hunter to an edgy Atheist from Avatar who want to Destroy the Church.
We can't have one of the main characters be Christian because then Christians will be good in which it goes against the anti-Christians propaganda.
Tbh it's a vast improvement over the Judgment Sypha which used her belonging to the Church to turn her into an insufferable bigot, something I imagine you also would have had a problem with as well. :-/

Quote
- Christians bring misfortune on people again.
Yeah, Christians never do that, and neither do people who have predominance in a culture in general. *rolls eyes*
Show has good Christians, too.  Hilarious how a couple of portrayals of shitty Christians get people torqued out of shape when by and large Christian portrayals in media (and even in Castlevania media) are overwhelmingly positive.

Quote
- The One Who's Many (Legion) It's based on a Christian story where Jesus Heals a man whom was Prossessed by a large number of demons.
In the animation we see the people prossessed wear Crown of Thorn which a symbol of Jesus so this takes the story and flips it on it's head by implying:
Jesus instead of healing people he unleash demons on them prossessing them, and Jesus is the man on tower and all the other mindless people are Christians.
Legion in the show is based off of Legion in the game.  The crown of thorns in this instance is probably the only thing you can actually link to the original story and the profane use of a holy symbol is not in and of itself an attack on Christianity or a comment on some sort of hypothetical "real story" but is very much in line with something an evil character would do.  You're just trying to twist it to force it to have the worst possible meaning you can imagine.  This is a massive stretch.


Quote
- flip the statue of Jesus... is another way of saying Christianity is bad and you're going to hell for it.
Inverted cross is a reference to Saint Peter, and is not at all unheard of for Christians to use.  As I recall, he was martyred upside-down in order to show his unworthiness compared to Jesus' sacrifice.  Therefore, inverting the cross symbolizes humility in deference to Christ.  Admittedly, some idiots treat it as a Satanic symbol.
*googles, not sure if I remember correctly*
Yep. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Peter

If anything the biggest general failing in the show, imo, is that it doesn't really do enough to show that Dracula is wrong, that humans deserve to exist, lol.  Way too many of the characters in general are just massive asshats with very little justification for being so, and that doesn't just apply to Christians.

In all fairness, I believe the games also keep it somewhat ambivalent, that Dracula may actually have a point. After all, they can't stop being evil, so that some higher being comes to do the evil unto them that they already commit to each other might be considered quite fair. Castlevania never was quite clear on the stance that Dracula is wholly wrong.
