    Someone's gotta make a thread. :p

    Seeing that religion has spread, I think it's time to make use of the Organized Religion civic and convert to a state religion. That will allow us to build buildings 25% faster in cities with that religion.

    And would give us diplomatic problems, making the chance someone invades us higher.

    Diplomatic problems with who? We don't have any state religion as it is. Plus, by sending missionaries, and making other civs have the majority of whatever religion is ours will improve diplomacy on the state religion end (civs have a diplo bonus if you have the same state religion). Yes, it'll take some work, but it is possible. Besides, it may even help with a diplomatic victory.

    Civs that already have a state religion will hate us if we adopt another state religion.
    All religious civics only work with a state religion (except monastry-less missionaries for OR).

    I support a secular society; let's keep it that way!

    Actually, I believe we'd technically be a pagan society, at least without Free Religion.

    Umm, in this game were just a bunch of pagans worshiping Zeus or Thor ;).

    What? Why aren't we worshiping The One?

    (and yes, I do realize that's an extremely old demogame comment. :p)
