In the example you give, would it be appropriate to note that both link religious practice/symbolism/teaching to seasonal cycles and to then compare/contrast their understanding of doing so, together with observations on the empirical fact of the commonality?
I think that is certainly a useful approach, perhaps equivalent to an anthropological method of study, but I fear that significant understanding could be lost by avoiding a discussion of the internal concepts of the different religions.  I'm thinking (as a comparison) that behaviourism as an explanatory tool in  psychology seems rather lacking by comparison to cognitive science.
