I doubt E.T cares about religion at all, anymore then the religions caring about the true nature of E.t.
If E.t considered or believed it self to be actually divine, or try to spread some holy gospel, then I would definitely considered it some form of a...what you would call a Christian deception. Where it would consider itself royalty among all life, and has the ego that would match that of the Devil, or even God for that matter.
Thankfully, I dont think E.t gives a crap about most religions at all. If anything, religion wants to give a crap about Aliens, cause they feel it more realistic, or some how related to their cause.
Like their were knight in shining armor, wearing the brand of god, trying to save some virgin princess from a fiery Dragon
If anything, the religious are the elephants in the spaceships.
Ships that can make a 90 degree turn at mach 3 or higher are not a life form that we can understand, seeing as how the stress on a biologic would be lethal.
You may continue with your god-hating now.
Not lumping all anti-religious ppl together, however can't you see the, (stupidity is too strong a word, but I hope you get my meaning) of basically saying "I don't believe in an all-knowing being, however I'm perfectly fine with believing in alternate lifeforms, that can defy physics in a way we can't easily understand and may have existed for 20K years longer than we have, thus making us as intelligent as BUGS compared to them."

Probably the same reason that the church used to murder/torture people that didn't believe that the Earth was the center of the universe-or that the Earth wasn't flat.
