I"m so very hurt but I believe you can still be friends with someone even they have a different view then you do. I'm just hurt, I don't know what to do or say?Any suggestions?Answer Question
well her and I have different views on that and because of that she ended out friendship.
That's immaturity on her part. I have friends and family members with opposing views on social issues, politics, etc. We embrace our differences and know when to debate, and when to be there for each other.

You know, I have a difference of opinion with friends all the time. We just learn each other's view on a subject and move on. Usually not discussing the topic anymore. I respect that some of my friends and family think differently about certain issues and I think it helps both of us understand the other side a little more, even if we don't agree.
I am sorry that your friend is so short sighted that she is willing to risk a long term friendship over a simple disagreement.
