And then Sekhmet being goddess of diseases meant she was also goddess of healers, so it comes round again. Religion is complicated.
Hmmm... sun, plague, healing... maybe Apollo and Artemis were actually triplets? Or maybe that's just Apollo switching genders, or vice versa.

Is it time to remove the drow from the game? (Especially if the reasons to do so stem from real-world beliefs and morality?)

It is time then, seeing as to how they behaved in our real world, to remove humans from the game.
I have seen some whataboutism in my time, but WOW.

By the Spider Queen!! True Drow are albino (because they live underground) and their skin turns a jet black if the are exposed to sun as a safety mechanism.

Apollo and Artemis are the twinned sun and moon, gods of civilization and the wild and the boundary between them, the bringing and healing of plagues and the patrolling and eliminating of monsters. It’s complicated.

Oh come on, we all know that elven skin naturally changes to resemble the surrounding area. Its camouflage that takes decades to fully change. This is why wood-elves have light green skin, arctic elves have extremely pale skin, elves that live in cities have light brown skin.

Any elf that lives underground will see their skin darken over time until it eventually becomes jet-black and the drow who end up living on the surface will see their skin lighten because of the higher ambient brightness. Radical changes, such as going from being regularly exposed to unfiltered daylight to only experiencing pure darkness, can make elven skin seem to prematurely age as it adjusts. The apparent age will revert back after a while, but the effect can be quite dramatic.

Look at Drizzt, he spends a few years on the surface and his skin looks light grey and positively ancient.
