How do you console a deconverting friend?

#1_Rasl3rX_Posted 7/24/2013 7:15:17 PM
So I got this friend and she's been a lifelong Christian, but she's in her college years now and has pretty much walked away from the faith completely. She's pretty depressed right now, she says it feels like a bad break up that's gone horribly wrong, and me being the atheist closest to her she's trying to get my advice and ****. I care about her and want to help her, but I also suck at this. and have never done this before, and while my own de-conversion was depressing it doesn't possibly hold a light to her lifelong Christianity. Any advice here? What's the general avenue?





btw youll all be my best friends if said advice ends up with me de-flowering her lololol

I've said a lot of stupid **** for sex, so I understand your position, but I'm also not altruistic enough to make an effort to get you laid. Perhaps you'd have better luck on a message board for teenage date rapists.

Maybe her depression will go away if you stop being her friend.
