Actually, it isn't that simple for most people. It is a proven fact a
lot of what makes us who we are our religious beliefs, likes/dislikes,
political associations, etc are learned from our parents. As a result we
are less likely to be objective about our own opinions, religious
beliefs, etc since we have to have something else to compare it to. This
often can be a problem for some people. Especially, if we are talking
about something as major as changing a person's religion or a different
life style that is totally foreign to them.
Let's assume a person was born into a nice Catholic family, was raised
Catholic, and didn't have much exposure with non-/Catholics. Later
he/she grows up and discoveres there are millions of Christians that are
not Catholics and belong to the Lutheran, Baptist, and various other
churches. How exactly is this person to make a choice or a decision if
one church is better than another when to his/her mind Catholicism is
all they knew growing up. In such a case they aren't likely to be very
objective, and what opinions they have is likely to be similar to what
they have been told growing up.
Yes, opinions can change, people can change, but it also takes work.
First of all the person has to realise they really don't know if being
Catholic is better than being Baptist, and has to get some firsthand
information about each religion and base their new opinion on solid
firsthand experience and information rather than subjective opinion they
heard growing up.
