I really want to be a Catholic.

It is basically a matter of doctrine. Yes, you can become a Baptist, but if you want to remain a Catholic, then you should examine the reason why you are considering becoming a Baptist and determine if the reason why you are considering is more important than what your faith.

The answer is yes and no. Baptists share similar beliefs and principles but Baptists have no central authority. This leads to some allowing a divorced Catholic to become a Baptist. Some believe that it is acceptable if the divorce was in case of adultery. Others state that it cannot happen because it is against Baptist church doctrine.

Your question and the line below it seem to contradict themselves. You can change religion at anytime you choose to.

Yes. Conversions are allowed both ways. The Baptist church does accept divorced individuals as members. They do not approve of divorce, but it does not prevent communion, conversion, or membership. The Catholic Church, however, limits communion for divorced individuals. They will accept conversions from the Baptist Church to the Catholic Church.
