This has been a problem in my current game. I'm playing wide (7 cities) going for culture at T160 or so. I was friends with Ethopia, until he sent in a missionary and converted my people. I asked him not to do it again, he agreed, only to send another missionary to my city, at which point I denounced him. Now, the other civs won't be friends with me since I denounced a "friend". Right now in the game, Songhai is causing issues. He has a great prophet also coming to one of my cities. After he converts, I ask him not to spread his religion, he says no. Now my military is ranked 1 or 2 (I forget). I've already been to war with Songhai way way at the beginning, and beat him, taking one of his settlers. So how can I: 1) Prevent other civs from sending their crappy missionaries over to me (without going to war if possible). -What I do not like in Civ is that other civs GPs and Missionaries can always come into your territory...so if not war...then what can you do to get them out? 2) Related...will any civ ever be friends with me again or am I screwed since I denounced a friend? I was under the impression if you denounced somebody they would be more cautious about sending in missionaries.
