    And their religious units keep over running me.

    How do you absolutely get a religion? I keep building Holy sites, etc, but only get a Prophet half the time.

    Remember to use Holy Site prayers. That’s usually more efficient than building more sites and shrines. Also, it’s probable that Poland is getting Earth Goddess as their pantheon. That gives faith like nobody’s business.

    I have played with them only once. I'm not good playing with religious civs. Will give them a try.

    Poland do not get any bonus to either faith or great prophet points generation, they are just programmed to focus on faith. There is nothing "too strong" about the civ. It is quite unlikely they will manage to win a religious victory on any other map than one of the smallest, so I think you can just ignore the whole thing. Or you can just conquer them, which would solve the problem too.

    Did you mean to post this on the Civ 5 board?

    I find this can help a little...
    Send out units and scouts. When you find another civ with a holy site, declare
    war and pillage it. It might cost you a unit, but you will get a good fillip to
    your religious production and eliminate (or hamper) a potential competitor.

    Who are you playing as?
    I do not often go for religion since I find that you can better use your faith if you do not have a religion
    But sometimes if I do get a religion I may have to declare war to kill invading units.

    It's a blessing and a curse. :)
    Watching pesky apostles and missionaries sniffing around your territory is
    annoying, but getting a quick Causus Belli is handy when others aren't
    available.

    That is a lot effort for very little benefit. If I warmonger they will hate me. Causus Bellies are not very relevant.
    You can also keep your religion longer and stronger if you keep peace with your neighbours and ally since allies do not send units to destroy your religion.

    Sure, it's a lot of effort. I didn't say that's the reason you should
    try to get that causus - it's a small benefit, that's all.

    Allies don't try to destroy your religion, but not all alliances
    prevent them from converting your cities. I hate the units wandering
    through and learning what I'm doing. (That's my prerogative, not theirs!)
