Blogger Leah Libresco, known for writing about ethics and religion from her perspective as an atheist, announced June 18 that she now believes in God and intends to enter the Catholic Church.
"For several years, a lot of my friends have been telling me I had an inconsistent and unsustainable philosophy," the Washington, D.C.-based author of the "Unequally Yoked" blog wrote in a post announcing her intention to convert.
The 22-year-old Yale graduate says she came to believe "that the Moral Law wasn't just a Platonic truth, abstract and distant. It turns out I actually believed it was some kind of Person, as well as Truth. And there was one religion that seemed like the most promising way to reach back to that living Truth."
"When I was talking to a post-modernist friend afterwards," Libresco said to CNA on June 19, "I told him, 'I guess you were right. (The concept of) "Truth" was a gateway drug.'"
