Spaw, sure, as far as fundamentalist types denouncing this 'n that as the devil's, there's always plenty of that to go around.

My beef is with the Britannica article on the tritone -- "Particularly offensive, or forbidden outright...until about 1900" is a direct quote, and no matter how charitably you try to interpret that sentence, it's just nuts. The articles on modes and harmony that are linked from that same page are better, so maybe the tritone article is just a fluke.
