Getcha sum riligun'
First, I would like to say that, NeonKaos, I like you. Bring that fire con mucho gusto! You'll be hard pressed to ever hurt my feelings. I'm a tough guy, I can take it.
That said, I don't find that yelling about anything ever quickened the solution.
Stepping on someone's toes about anything they hold close to them in this life is not a good way to get them to lean in and listen. Stomping around on someone's spiritual faith, however strong or weak it might be, is what has gotten humans into many a war.
Don't try to fix your friends, or anybody else for that matter. And yes, as Lovingradiance was saying, call that weird energy out and get it on the table where you can talk about it with your friend.
