I totally support freedom of religion and i've always respected Mormons: theyve always seemed hard-working, devout, and good family people. But now my best friend, after ordering a Book of Mormon, met with the "elders" and before I knew it he was converted and baptized (he kept it a secret from me until after the fact). I am so so sad because he has changed and I feel like I'm losing my friend. He never has time to see or speak to me. The "elders" and bishops are constantly dropping by his house without notice (he welcomes them, sigh). He is hyper-secretive and distant. He blows 10 percent of his GROSS salary on these people. They must be experts in brainwashing. I'm very distressed and dont know what to do. I couldnt find any message boards about this so I gave this place a try. Any help would be appreciated.
