Many years ago I met someone just by chance through a common friend we’ve had. It turned out that we got along very well and we became best friends in a short period of time. I knew from the beginning on, that my friend was a very religious person. Not obsessed as she would become later, but definitely more than average. This didn’t bother me and it also was never an issue in our friendship. Since we were best friends, we shared our secrets and dreams, just like other best friends do. Than however, religion started to overtake my friends thinking. It progressed very subtle and at first I didn’t see the changes happening. Than my friend would start to withdraw for weeks or month at a time, and simply not responding to any communication. Not to emails, text messages or phone calls. She had become indifferent. Those "dive" periods would become more frequent. As it turned out, my friend had gotten a job in one of those religious organizations. She started to become more and more involved and turned into a workaholic as well. Since she is a very intelligent person in some aspects of her life, she very quickly became director of the organization. By now, she would only contact me when it was convenient for her, not when I needed a friend.
During the few conversation we did have, I could tell, that she was brainwashing herself deeper and deeper into a dogmatic state. Since I didn’t want to loose my best friend and in an attempt to save her from herself, I started to voice my opinion. We started to have rather controversial conversations and her grip on reality slipped further and further. Dogmatism took over. It turned into a fanatical behavior, even believing that god is talking to her. Everyone, including me, or especially me (since I was in opposition to her behavior) outside the religious environment was looked at as an underling. Only the religious people seemed to have the right way of live. If you can call that a live. The complete indifference towards me grew and grew.
