my husband is in catechism, which has been on the agenda for... practically a decade now. he was going to get baptized in a couple months. my mother in law is very much anti-organized religion, especially catholicism,(to the point of saying very offensive things in front of me, in a confrontational way and contradicting what the kids are taught) and he's easily persuaded by her. he was very excited about all he's been learning and understanding since he's been in catechism.
well, the two went off together for an evening, and now he's not so sure. he did tell me they talked a lot about catholicism and the baptism..
do you think i should stay relatively uninvolved in this, and let the priest continue instructing him and guiding him through this, or should i speak to the mother in law, or..... should i what? i'm really getting impatient with the mother in law, but don't want to say anything that's going to cause friction in the family. right now the only one angry is me, and i'm the only one who knows it lol i'd like to keep it that way and just trust that in the end my husband will see through it and do the right thing. on the other hand, there's a lot of anxiety for me that she's going to end up talking him out of it. the two talk a lot (they'll spend over an hour on the phone together, sometimes a couple times a week) i just don't want her putting things into his head.
but he's grown, he's talking to a great priest, i feel like he's in good hands....... should i just leave it alone? i don't want to meddle like she is, it feels like a soap opera. any advice is appreciated.
