When growing up I had a group of high school girlfriends I was very close to. We all went our separate ways after graduation and didn’t really keep in touch, but when I was going through my divorce, we started reconnecting on Facebook. They are now my rocks and I love each of them dearly. They are all religious to varying degrees. One of them just got her doctorate in theology. They all know my views on the subject and it has never been an issue with us. I have had religious discussions with some of them, but it has never gotten heated or hurtful. Luckily we love each other regardless of how each of us thinks. How important are your friendships and have you lost any friends over differences in beliefs.
