    Catholics don't generally consider anyone non-Catholic a Christian and Christians don't consider Catholicism Christian. Why? Because the Catholics look to the Pope before God and the Virgin Mary before Christ. They also have changed the ten commandments into their own set. See Exodus 20 in a normal Bible and note that the 4th commandment says the 7th day is Holy. The Catholics say they changed that day to Sunday. By whose authority??? If you would both study the Bible (not the Catholic version either) you might find you are on the same page after all. But two people from different religions will never work unless one changes to the other. Are you williing to compromise??
