Does it really matter to you what your neighbor believes? or doesn't believe?
If they talk about beliefs you don't like can't you just walk away politely? My friend started talking about all this blue moon goddess stuff today and I just politely said I had to go. On the other hand, she can't seem to give me enough respect when talking about my relgion. I mention I was going to Mass today so I had to get off the phone. Really all she had to do was say ok talk to you later but of course there was talk about Mary is a goodess. Shouldnt we be worried about our own beliefs?

How about just making a deal that you two will NEVER talk about anything that has to do with your religious beliefs. There are many people that do that. I don't talk about religion or politics with friends or family.

No one asks you to hide. Just be respectful and know that it will stir things up if you talk about it. It's really not a hard concept to understand.

Why do people do the same things and yet expect different results? You obviously think you should have some magical power to control your friend so she does exactly what you want her to do. It doesn't work like that. Other people on here have told you the same thing. You already seem to know that mentioning anything about your religion will provoke some kind of response. Either change the behavior or accept the response. Good Luck!!
