    ... there is a kind of branding advantage. Converting existing religious spaces to the new faith allows for a smoother transition for the existing population. They still go to a central hill or temple or sacred lake or cave or mountain, and they simply bring offerings to a different god and sing different songs. I don’t mean to minimize the change, but I have seen it so often now—in England and Rome and Turkey and Egypt and Israel and India and Japan ...

    ... we returned to the office for a luncheon with everyone there.
