Today people's faiths seem to be a conflicting issue and so I think in any major situation in the event of a Godzilla or alien invasion, its likely to squash what people think they know and redirect religious leaders and groups to focus on whats what. Of course its fiction but what if? And yeah there can be political figures and the whole nine but give the religious aspect a part in this too. Especially if they decide to do something with Mothra and having her play the part of earths protector.
Exactly. What's at the heart of so many great monster movies (like Gojira or Cloverfield) is the examination of how people respond to threats they have no frame of reference for. People occasionally question their faith after having just learned about the Holocaust. Who knows what would happen if a disaster of such epic proportions happened to them? A religious element (not a major plot point) could work quite nicely, like a person praying repeatedly and passionately for an end to Godzilla and receiving no answer, leading them to question the existence of any God. It could work.
