Why did the Late Renaissance consider the art & sculpture of Botticelli, Donatello,& Michelangelo "too pagan"?

Im having a hard time studying for my Art History and Appreciation Final...and its coming up quite soon.. someone plz help? c:

Much of the art was based on Greco-Roman mythology, particularly in the Northern Courts. Aside from the art produced for the Pope in Rome, much of the art produced was mythological. Consider Botticelli's Birth of Venus, the Venus de Milo, Titian's Venus of Urbino, and even the Mona Lisa. The Mona Lisa was the first female portrait that addressed the viewer. Most female portraiture was done in profile because they were wedding portraits. It was almost scandalous that a woman could look at her audience in a painting. Then think of the Venus of Urbino, which came a little later. This was a marriage portrait that was meant to portray a woman older than the bride, a sort of promise of what the bride would be in a few years. The chests in the background are dowry chests. The dog belonged to her new husband, a man from the powerful della Rovere family. The woman in the portrait is supposed to have borne a certain resemblance in her face to the young girl who was marrying, but obviously the woman is physically more mature than the bride. The nudity and her position were considered pornographic. The act in which she is depicted was thought to enhance female fertility. Her position and state of dress bears resemblance to a portrait of Venus in Repose, but she is not a goddess, making it profane. There is also the fresco The Wedding of Cupid and Psyche, which is both mythological and contains a lot of nudity. A number of Latin texts showed up in attics during the Renaissance. These were mostly mythological. There was a huge interest among the wealthy, who would have been the patrons of art, in the fun-loving mythological subjects. To the Catholic church, all other religions, but especially polytheistic religions like that of the Greeks and Romans, were pagan and thus heretical.
