ISTANBUL (Reuters) – What happens when you put a Muslim imam, a Christian priest, a rabbi and a Buddhist monk in a room with 10 atheists?
Turkish television station Kanal T hopes the answer is a ratings success as it prepares to launch a gameshow where spiritual guides from the four faiths will seek to convert a group of non-believers.
The prize for converts will be a pilgrimage to a holy site of their chosen religion — Mecca for Muslims, the Vatican for Christians, Jerusalem for Jews and Tibet for Buddhists.

How ’bout sending the Christians to Jerusalem too? I mean, really.
No offense to Roman Catholics but this is an obvious slight to Christians. (Okay, it’s a slight to sanity and all things sacred … but, you know what I mean. What’s that you say? Right. We are talking about an atheist that converts to Christianity on a Turkish gameshow. Fine. The Vatican it is.)
