HSLDA is the acronym for the Homeschool Legal Defense Association and I know a LDS family locally that belongs to this group with no problem. HSLDA is a Christian organization and makes no pretenses to be anything but that. They have their own agenda and controversy but our family has benefited a great deal from our membership with them over the years.
I have found that as a Catholic homeschool family we are not comfy moving in some Christian fund hs groups mainly because the other moms kept trying to convert and save us which is maybe what your friend experienced.
Why does your friend even want to be in a Christian homeschooling group? I'll come back and edit in some links to hs groups in her area that are not Christian for you.
