I am a Catholic. My wife was Presbyterian, she converted to Catholicism before we got married.
Her Father, Mother and Brother are still Presbyterian. Her Father is an Elder in the church and the family is very involved with the church.
I went a few times with my wife to watch her sing at their worship services as she had responsibilities in the church before she converted, like being head of the teen group, whether she wanted to or not.
I was never comfortable being there and especially didn’t like the Catholicism bashing and blaming, and the loud yelling of the minister and the seemingly nonstop loud droning music of the choir. I didn’t have any time to meditate it was constant noise throughout the service.
As Catholics now, her parents want to show off their grandchildren to their friends at church and my wife says she wants to meet her friends there.
I said we are Catholic and if you want to meet people it can be outside church.
She says she is going there just to be polite to her Parents and to say hello to the people she has known for awhile, and it has nothing to do with the church.
Another thing, this is in South Korea, where we met, and we might be going back there into the same situation later on.
The bottom line is, wouldn’t it be scandalous for Catholics to visit a Presbyterian church for worship, just to say hello to people? Though not forbidden by the Church outright, what are some reasons we shouldn’t go?
What should I do? What should my wife do?
