My friend of 20+ years started distancing herself from myself and another friend a few years ago once she started attending church regularly. It hurt, but there was nothing I could do. We have recently started communicating here and there via social media and today she invited me to Easter service via text. She said she had been out sick from work but was definitely going to church. How do I tell her church rubs me the wrong way? How do I tell her all of the religious holidays she acknowledges are rooted in paganism and what she believes in is all lies? I value our friendship but I don't want to be part of any church related activities. What would you do in this situation?

Simply decline her invitations in a nice way.

Its a personal preference.

If religion doesn't phase you, and you'd like to be there for your friend, go. If you'd feel a bit off/uneasy the whole time you're there, then best leave it be.

I've attended a local church a few times, due to invites from my parents, mainly just to spend time with them.

I don't want Fop, goddamn it! I'm a Dapper Dan man!

Ah, like....

One of those. How much would she worry about hurting your feelings?

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!
