    I remember back in Civ2 the Diplomat could attempt to bribe enemy units.
    I would like to see it introduced to CiV via Missionary and Prophet unit special abilities.

    This ability would reflect how in real world religion played and still is playing huge part in changing people's loyalties but more importantly:

    Unit conversion would enable weaker player to get lot more advanced unit from a runaway AI. A Prophet would be stronger than a Missionary and act similarly to a GG making adjacent units immune to religious conversion.

    This new feature would also keep Missionaries and Prophets relevant in later game.
    In today's warfare, the role of religious people ie chaplains is still relevant as they affect the morale of front line troops.

    Thoughts?
