One could also point to the way in which methods of depicting Sol Invictus were borrowed by Christian artists. All of this would seem to fall alarmingly short of a full condemnation.

I think you're overstating the influence of the pagans, almost as if the early Church took more from them than simple dates and symbology.  Be careful not to fall into that Jack Chick nonsense.
