When you execute this command, you need to provide the code of the religion that you want the court member to convert to as arguments.

This command can be useful in various situations. For instance, possessing court members of differing religions can lead to instability and unrest within your kingdom. However, by using this command, you can unify the religion within your court to prevent such consequences.
