Do you know the history of this shrine in regards to this property?

Also, calling a Shinto Shrine a "church" is...yeah...
A place of worship, maybe? There are churches that are also shrines as well. Lourde's being just one example. Think of it as loose colloquialism, like a Japanese person calling a church a shrine, if you can.

I wonder what the real Sinto priest thinks about his shrine being used for advertising a spin off from a manga based on moe/loli-com themes.

The priest has dealt with visits from about a million (literally) otaku since Lucky Star started. I doubt that this will faze him much.

if discretionary silence means more brass in the collection plate, basket, box

How do you know that the priest has been silent? Who are you expecting him to talk to? And if he has been silent it might mean that he does not believe that this publicity is disrespectful to him, his shrine, or his religion.
The shrine has had a lot of publicity over the last six or seven years, so the general public already knows all about it, and the local merchants have been happily taking advantage of it.
Even if the priest did speak out against this I doubt that it would make any difference.

so be it as long as no one else notices the demon behind the mask. ¬_¬

Which demon and what mask would that be?
