Over the past several years, I came to my decision to convert to Catholicism, and I have had a great deal of support from my close family, my husband and many friends. The problem is that I have one friend (she is baptist) who feels the need to understand or “get” why I’m converting. It isn’t something I can explain easily, but I know that I am making the decision that I am meant to make.
I haven’t spoken to my friend much since she voiced her anti-catholic beliefs to me, which are filled with misconceptions. I tried to talk to her about some of the misconceptions but she didn’t want to hear it, and her husband was even worse. They were guests in our home and told my husband and I that the faith we are choosing is silly, and wrong. It was especially hurtful since my husband was raised Catholic. They didn’t even seem to realize how hurtful they were.
I would hate to lose a friend but I can’t handle her disrepect. I am not sure what to say to her, or if I should say anything at all.
Should I say something?
