I GUESS this should go here, don't really know where else to put it.
Anyways, My friend Ashley has always been a big supporter of me, and has always been there to talk to about anything and everything, especially and often Paganism. She used to be a pagan, back in middle school, but her mom (being a catholic) found out and forced her to stop practicing. Not having anywhere else to go, She has turned back to catholicism, and has just recently taken it to another level. Up until now, you could say that she is..."sexually adventurous", to say the least. Recently however, after finding a guy who is actually pretty moral, she has decided to stop all of that, and go completely religious. This, i do not mind at all, i am a very moral person myself and couldn't be happier that shes no longer taking those kind of risks, or doing drugs, or drinking, or any other related activities. What DOES bother me is a comment she made to me the other day about me going to purgatory. Now i've explained to her the extent of my beliefs on many occasions, and she has listened with an open mind, and although she doesn't accept them herself, up until now she has given me the respect of letting my beliefs be true to ME. But her comment about how i am destined for a stay in purgatory, and then of course heaven.... that just pisses me off. She no longer has enough respect for me to even begin to think that, MAYBE, i'm not like everybody else, and i MIGHT be going somewhere else??
I respect her beliefs entirely, if she feels that she is destined for heaven, than so be it, she is destined for heaven. I however, do not feel that way, and i think the least she can do, as a FRIEND, is respect that.
do you guys think im being just as bad for not respecting HER beliefs?
tell me what you think, im interested in what everyone else has to say here.
