But religion?

After a few days of begging for parents to allow me to join a meditation course rooted in Buddhist teachings, I have managed to be given a tentative yes (good enough).

Then this question came along.

Mother: “But you won’t convert to Buddhism right? You’ll still be Catholic?”
Me: “… (mumbles) mm”

WHY.

For reference, there is no need for conversion as Buddhism is not necessarily a religion (to my knowledge) and is fundamentally compatible with teachings of the major religions of the world.
However, if it is a religion, no problem.
