Prominent atheist blogger converts to Catholicism

By Dan Merica, CNN

Washington (CNN) – She went from atheist to Catholic in just over 1,000 words.

Leah Libresco, who’d been a prominent atheist blogger for the religion website Patheos, announced on her blog this week that after years of debating many “smart Christians,” she has decided to become one herself, and that she has begun the process of converting to Catholicism.

Libresco, who had long blogged under the banner “Unequally Yoked: A geeky atheist picks fights with her Catholic boyfriend,” said that at the heart of her decision were questions of morality and how one finds a moral compass.

“I had one thing that I was most certain of, which is that morality is something we have a duty to,” Libresco told CNN in an interview this week, a small cross dangling from her neck. “And it is external from us. And when push came to shove, that is the belief I wouldn’t let go of. And that is something I can’t prove.”

CNN's Belief Blog: the faith angles behind the big stories

According to a Patheos post she wrote on Monday, entitled “This is my last post for the Patheos Atheist Portal,” she began to see parts of Christianity and Catholicism that fit her moral system. Though she now identifies as a Catholic, Libresco questions certain aspects of Catholicism, including the church’s positions on homosexuality, contraception and some aspects of religious liberty.

“There was one religion that seemed like the most promising way to reach back to that living Truth,” Libresco wrote about Catholicism in her conversion announcement post, which has been shared over 18,000 times on Facebook. “I asked my friend what he suggests we do now, and we prayed the night office of the Liturgy of the Hours together.”

At the end of the post, Libresco announces that she is in a Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults class and is preparing for baptism. She will continue to blog for Patheos, but under the banner, “A geeky convert picks fights in good faith.”

According to Dan Welch, director of marketing for Patheos, Libresco’s post has received around 150,000 page views so far.

“Leah's blog has gotten steadily more popular since she arrived at Patheos, but a typical post on her blog is probably closer to the range of 5,000 page views,” Welch wrote in an email. “Even now, a few days later, her blog is probably getting 20-30 times its normal traffic.”

Libresco’s announcement has left some atheists scratching their heads.

“I think atheists were surprised that she went with Catholicism, which seems like a very specific choice,” Hemant Mehta, an atheist blogger at Patheos, told CNN. “I have a hard time believing how someone could jump from I don’t believe in God to a very specific church and a very specific God.”

Mehta says that Libresco’s conversion is a “one-off thing” and not something that signals any trend in atheism. “The trends are very clear, the conversions from Catholicism to atheism are much more likely to happen than the other way around,” he said.

But while atheists were puzzled by the conversion, others commended Libresco.

“I know I’ve prayed for her conversion several times, always thinking she would make a great Catholic,” wrote Brandon Vogt, a Catholic blogger. “And with this news, it looks like that will happen. Today heaven is roaring with joy.”

Thomas L. McDonald, a Catholic Patheos blogger, welcomed Libresco to the fold: “Welcome. I know this was hard, and will continue to be so. Don’t worry if the Catholics make it as for difficult for you as the atheists. We only do it to people we love.”

Libresco says one of the most common questions she has received is how she'll deal with atheists now.

“The great thing about a lot of the atheist and skeptic community is that people talk more critically about ideas and want to see proof provided,” Libresco said. “That kind of analytical thinking is completely useful and the Catholic Church doesn’t need to and should not be afraid of because if you’ve got the facts on your side, you hope they win.”

Libresco is just switching the side she thinks the facts are on.

    When I heard that God sent himself
    As a sacrifice to himself,
    To appease himself,
    Of sins invented by himself,
    Committed by people he created himself,
    I knew he loved me and turned to Jesus. Because it made so much sense.

      Actually, that particular science you so despise kept the Cold War from ever going hot. Had there only been conventional weapons at the end of WWII, Stalin would have kept invading and China would have gone for the rest of Asian. Both were too big to go against, especially at the same time.

    In one quote she says she can't prove the facts of her belief and in a second she says the "church" has the facts on its side.

    Which is it? And how much of this was due to pressure from your boyfriend or a wish to please him?

    This is the most insane load of dribble. No self respecting atheist would have ever read her lame blog, which by the looks of it was designed to have her "covert" from the start. Yet suddenly she is some "top atheist blogger"? REALLY...? If a no name idiot christian blogger suddenly became an atheist would CNN have a story about it? Of course not.

      Yes Rosendo, one must be baptised, in order to become a god, just as St. Augustine told us :

      God became man that you might become gods – Augustine of Hippo in the 5th century AD

      If, therefore, man has become immortal, he will also be God. And if he is made God by water and the Holy Spirit after the regeneration of the laver he is found to be also joint-heir with Christ after the resurrection of the dead – Hippolytus, Discourse On The Holy Theiphany, (section) 8; ANF, Vol. V. pg 237).

Don't just give it a quicky knee-jerk response, but actually think it through carefully before you decide. Do not answer here to us – it is for you to ponder so that you are honest with yourself.

    If your boyfriend was Reform Jewish, would you still be converting to Catholicism?

    If the answer is in any way "no" or "maybe not", you have some soul searching to do.

      To sum it up, her conversion was because she came to believe in the fundamentalist/literalist interpretation of Greek Idealism, (and it's moral corolaries). She will no doubt change her mind, when she gets to Phil 102.

    Whatever your going to be , do it with all your heart, soul,body,mind,spirit or dont do it at all. There are far to many mouth professors and not heart possessors in the Christian world. The worldly look at the church as a divided wet noodle with no power or authority and we ask them to choose our faith from the smorgasboard of different religions and philosophies and wonder why they laugh at us for believing this"myth". We have done a poor job of representing the Lord Jesus Christ. My faith has power and authority, it is tangible and very evident to me, I have seen healings ,not imagined,I have experienced the literal power of God knock me down as a sign and wonder, I have experienced joy unspeakable to the point that I could not stand it and could not stand up anymore, My God is very real and all powerful and shame on you brothers and sisters presenting a powerless gospel to a lost and dying world, REPENT CHURCH and return to the true church of the book of acts.

    I think it was just that time of the month where all women get a bit irrational...she will convert back in a week.
    On a more serious note the article seems to convey a little that she has converted because religion seems to answer her questions about morality. For too long people assume that science and morality cannot coexist in the same sentence.
    Science is not a construct of humans, it is a process that seeks answers and explains the universe in which we live.
    Gravity causes an apple to fall out of the tree and will continue to do so long after we are gone. It is a fact. The problem with all people of religion is that they tend to ignore the facts.
    All of our feelings and questions about morality that define us as being human come down to one thing....our large brains. Why is it so hard to admit that neurobiology and science can help us to explain and answer these moral questions that we think only religion can offer us?

      she began to see parts of Christianity and Catholicism that fit her moral system. End quote

      People think that only religion can help explain how to act in a morally good way. She has stated the parts of christianity and catholicism fits her moral compass. I dont doubt that for a second, Im sure it has. Different religions see and value morality in different ways, and it makes sense that people will associate there own feelings and pull to a certain type of religion. It seems ok for muslims to beat there wifes for showing to much skin in Public, that is an expression of their morality, conversley in western societies it seems ok that we can dress our young kids up as adults early and show countless degrading images of women across the media. Can we say that one way is better then the other? To do so would imply that one would have to be wrong. They could both be wrong, couldnt they? . I simple argue that through science it is possible to determine how we should be treating others and what is the right and wrong way to behave. What this will offcouse mean is that some cultures, some religions and their certain ways of expression will turn out to be wrong. The benefit however will be a moral compass that we all share, If we all had and new the right ways to act and to treat people, this world would be a far better place. There are right and wrong answers, we just need to find them.

      Prayer wastes time and trades real efforts for fantasy. Atheism removes the false man made barriers religions place on people and allows people to be truly happy without guilt. We are free to love who we want, study science, be amazed at natures miracles and let our natural curiosities grow. We have excellent morals that evolution has given us that come naturally in spite of religion's attempt to corrupt them. Atheism is empowering and certainly healthy for all humans!

  18. Red Flags All Over The Place

    She was an atheist blogger on a . . . religious website? Yeah, you just know that the religious website picked the brightest, most hard hitting atheist they could find. Really. They wouldn't cop out to hiring a little girl who suggested “Unequally Yoked: A geeky atheist picks fights with her Catholic boyfriend” as her approach or anything.

    “Unequally Yoked: A geeky atheist picks fights with her Catholic boyfriend” – anyone else notice the emphasis on her boyfriend? And her insecurities? And "geeky atheist picks fights with Catholic boyfriend" is not exactly an cutting-edge intellectual approach for a blogger.

    Yeah, they went for the heavyweight.

    Catholic boyfriend (with concerned Catholic mother, no doubt), and at that age she wants to marry, and Catholicism gets weird about marrying non-Catholics with Catholics (know this one from experience). And suddenly she decides that since she cannot figure out why people could behave decently, then nobody else could also, so there must be a God and it must be the Catholic God, and now she can get married ! ! ! (WAIT -scratch that last bit!).

    And her intellectual pride is superficially intact because she put up this pseudointellectualy facade that makes her conversion lofty and abstract and jargony, just like her blogs (try reading one), and so she can live in denial of the reality that she sold out her values for love . . . which I actually would respect more than the fraud she is perpetrating on herself.

    Ah well. No loss really. Thousands of Catholics go secualr to every one of her that go the other way.

      30 years ago would have been the 1980s, not the 1930s – 1940s, but whatever.

      A catholic can marry a non-catholic in the church, but the non-catholic must be a baptized christian. If you're going to convert just for the sake of marriage, why not just go for convenience all the way and convert to whatever your significant other practices.

      I was raised in a strict catholic home, and the pressure to marry a catholic can be intense. I know many people who were pressured to convert in order to marry their SO. Other religions do the same. I know people who've converted to Judaism, Islam and catholicism in order to marry. Personally, I wouldn't want to live a lie like that, but people choose what want.

      Oh Streuth! All the atheists and godless misfits have come out of the woodwork to have a hissy fit!

      Someone [ particularly a card-carrying ATHEIST] chooses to become a Catholic!!!!!!!! You losers really can't handle it, can you!
      You talk about Catholics trying to force their religion on others? Listen to yourselves! Bigots an d hypocrites to a man.

      Get over yourselves. And mind your own business. You're like a crowd of old ladies gossiping over the garden fence.

      Why do the religious freaks label atheists' as "godless" as a means to insult when it is the greatest of compliments to us..

      So hilarious.
