My husband and I had "friends" that moved from out of state and attended our church. My husband became close with him and her and I WERE close, but apparently she didn't like her hubby going out with mine and having a beer or two. We are I suppose somewhat liberal. Well, this guy got a DUI on his own having nothing to do with my hubby, she LOST IT on him, they got weird, and left our church. Now, all our "mutual" friends exclude me from everything, and they were making so many excuses not to make plans with us (being "busy") and then I find out...they've been hanging out with my sister and brother in law who we are VERY close to. My dad gave them this huge lecture and I flipped on my sister that she'd hang out with somebody who had treated us so horrible. They're spreading rumors and even told the pastor there was a "bad influence" that made them leave, but didn't mention our names. Has this ever happened to anyone??Answer Question

You can find nutty people anywhere and these too seem like they are using you and dh to cover up their own personal problems. Her dh might have more of a drinking problem then you realize and she is enabling him by making excuses and blaming others. I wouldn't be anger, and you can't stop them from spreading rumors, just don't stoop to their level. Let your sister and BIL hang out with them, they'll probably be their next target the next time something goes wrong for them.
Don't say anything negative about them, set a better example, that is all you can do.
