Or call them by their names. I feel that using the word "God" in reference to the Christian or Jewish god is already agreeing to play on the believer's field--it admits to a special standing for that particular god. All the wishy-washy definitions of "God" are harder to apply to "Jehovah." Using gods' names also emphasizes how many different gods people believe in, and I feel brings the Christian/Jewish etc. god down a notch.
