Um. Ok. Wouldn’t that have been an issue earlier on in the friendship? I guess I’m confused about the timeline between the time you all became BFFs and the point when you weren’t. I would have thought if religion was the real issue, it would have been sooner rather than later. I’m speculating. I certainly can’t say for sure if that is what happened or not.
I’ve been through similar situations where I found out years later they were only friends with me for one superficial reason or another and then stopped for something equally simple.
