Hi! I hope I put this on the right forum.
This week I got word that a friend of mine is in town to visit, and she’s already expressed that she would love to get together with me and chat, catch-up, etc. this weekend. This friend and I had a close friendship a couple of years back before she moved to the East Coast, and the experiences we had during that time I would never trade.
Since moving to the East Coast, several things have happened:
*]She “discovered” that she was a lesbian (she’s a divorced mom of a daughter which she gave up custody to her ex-husband)
*]She married another woman in Massachuetts (not sure if she’s out here with her on the trip)
*]I had a re-birth of my faith, and now am a strong Catholic Christian faithful to the teachings of the Church and the Magisterium
I have had many gay and lesbian friends in the past - I love each and every one of them, though I know they don’t understand the plan God has for men and women. Though I would love to see her again, I’m afraid a couple of things may happen:
*]I might start feeling uncomfortable with the lifestyle “choice” she made
*]I might start thumping the Bible over her head, telling her that she’s not in a state of grace and if she died today, she would be going to hell!
[/LIST]Of course, that second scenario would be a definate no-no. My question(s) are - 1) should I still go out and meet her? 2) how do I stand strong in my Faith and my convictions in front of the gay-agenda assault I’m sure I’m going to face when I reveal to them that I’m back into my faith as a Catholic?
I admit - I can be a pushover sometimes, even when it’s not right.
Thanks for your help!
