I don't know if any of you have a problem reading The Blaze (Glenn Beck's news site), but that's where I was shown this story. Leah Libresco, a now former atheist blogger for Patheos.com, has converted to Christianity, Catholicism, in particular.
It's great to hear these sorts of things. Even if she's not becoming Orthodox, she is surely taking a big step forward.Atheist blogger Leah Libresco shocked the secular community this week when she announced on her Patheos blog that she has converted to Christianity. Her article, entitled, “This is my last post for the Patheos Atheist Portal,” explained her conversion to Catholicism, which has sent shock-waves through the atheist blogosphere.
In her post, Libresco details her personal struggles with understanding the root of moral law. Obviously, non-believers don’t see morality as coming from a central source. Instead, they see humanity as living on its own, disconnected from any fertile source of knowledge and goodness. For Libresco, this ideal has come full-circle, as she inevitably arrived at an understanding that aligns with a Christ-centered world-view.
