Enable priests to see local Lord's faith

Title: Enable priests to see local Lord's faith

Summary: Priest are not able to see the local Lord's faith while everyone else can. That doesn't make sense. When I am in a region, preaching about the Gods, I can always see in the message list of my own religion if anyone is a member or not, but knowing if someone is a pagan, or aligned to a misguided or evil religion would be good to know if you would attempt to convert him. And it would be historically correct as well. A Lord was an esteemed and public figure. He wouldn't be able to hide his faith, and if he attempted that people might think of him as a pagan, which he shouldn't want.

Details: I would propose the following:
a. Make everyone able, including priests, to see the local Lord's faith.
b. Or make everyone able, including priests, to see the local Lord's faith within the boundaries of his/her own realm. Outside the realm, in the priest would be able to discover the local Lord's faith through "Estimate religions...".

Benefits: It is good to know with whom you are dealing. Knowing if the Lord is adhering an evil or misguided faith changes how you act within the region, also depending on the situation you are in. You will approach one differently when you know about his faith before you attempt to convert him. And priests are more likely to contact pagan Lords and make them interested about religion, especially their own.

Possible Exploits: Non that I can think of because it is already visible to everyone else.

... isn't that already shown in regiondetails.php  religion tab?

i mean.. back in that thread, there was a bug where everyone can see the lord's faith (in the aforementioned tab), aside from the priest. that has since been fixed... at least within own realm for certain. (my priest is a priest lord.. shouldn't think being a lord gets to see extra?)

And I can confirm that my Priest on BT can see it on the religion tab of the region details.  Where else would you see it?

i suppose i could see a benefit to sticking it in play-religion.php as well.

eg..
There are ca. 9140 believers in your faith Draconic Order in this region. That's about 89% of the population. The local lord follows <whatever religion/none of the established faith>. <---

Temples in this region: <-- can't remember if this bit list out all religions or not.

    small temple of Draconic Order

There are also 2 shrines of your faith in this region.

This is relatively easy. If nobody gets to it tomorrow, I'll commit a fix.

I am guessing that would only end up on testing right away but do you think after a week or less it could be declared bug free and uploaded to stable?

Saw this simple text change lingering here and solari never got around to it. It is done now, waiting to go live on both stable and testing.
