Atheist Blogger Switches to Patheos' Catholic Portal

Leah Libresco announced her conversion Monday after lengthy exploration of morality on her blog.

Yesterday, atheist blogger Leah Libresco posted her last on Patheos' Atheist Portal and announced her new blogging home would be its Catholic Portal. Her conversion announcement, which has drawn more than 700 comments, results from her personal explorations of the underpinnings of morality.

Libresco hosts an Ideological Turing Test, in which she has previously pretended to be a Christian.
