You're not?

The sample Lunar units in BA all seem to have deities from their homelands (though they seem to be very uniform, not mixed, so no doubt it's easier).

The homeland keywords in ILH all give a suggested cult/practise/whatever for soldiers and warriors.

And the Lunars are supposed to be the ones who accept everyone. Why would they insist that you drop your native religion to join the army? (Unless you're Orlanthi, of course). Seven Mothers *as well as* your native stuff, perhaps, but why would they want you to drop the nice effective magic you already know how to use and start again with somehing new?
