Atheist blogger Leah Libresco is making waves on the secular and religious blogospheres this week after announcing she is converting from atheism to Catholicism because she believes the Catholic moral framework is better grounded:
I believed 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. I asked my friend what he suggest we do now, and we prayed the night office of the Liturgy of the Hours together (I’ve kept up with that since).
And with that, Libresco is a Catholic.
