Buddhist Android 

“Ogawa says an android deity isn’t a normal experience for the Japanese and is still an alien concept. But Japanese people don’t carry stereotypical thinking when it comes to robots and don’t hold any prejudices. ‘They just think ‘oh, what’s happened here’ and then just accept it,’ he laughs.”

—Thisanka Siripala, “An Ancient Japanese Shrine Debuts a Buddhist Robot.” The Diplomat. March 5, 2019.

I’m okay with a Buddhist Android. Don’t expect this to be taken up by Christian churchs any time soon.
