When has religion been used as a plot device in an xbook? [i.e., a comic book series related to the X-Men]

...there was the "cross to bear" thing between Maggott and Wolverine in X-Men #75. I don't know if it counts as a religious theme, for many men, during Roman times, had to carry the cross they were to be crucified on. However, the story of Jesus' last moments would be the most popular reference to get this metaphor from.
