A well loved atheist blogger on Patheos has announced a belief in God and is becoming a Catholic! I love a good conversion story!
Sorry, I'll make it a clickable when I get off the tablet and back on my laptop tomorrow. My heart is bursting for this young woman. What's your take?
I feel happy for anyone who has that "a-ha!" moment that leads them into their siritual path, regardless of what path that is. It's a glorious feeling. But I understand what adnilm is saying about feeling "elated" when someone has that moment about something you've known for a while. It goes beyond the "I'm happy for you" to "welcome to the club", which is a feeling of understanding, bonding and comprehension towards that person that makes one feel, well, elated.
I have the exact same feeling when I learn of stories like this one: What's a Nice Cosmo Girl Like You Doing With an Orthodox Husband?
I identify myself with the person's emotions and struggles, so that adds to the "happy" feeling.

Everyone's religious choices matter to me. I care about the eternity of all people and am thrilled when someone does a turnabout
Bullshit! You only care about stirring up drama. You were giddy with glee when you posted this because you thought it would hit a nerve, and now that you realise that we couldn't care less, you're trying to backpedal. Talk about completely unnecessary!

Caring about your soul and liking you are two very different things.
Once again, I call bullshit! You feel nothing but contempt for us and couldn't care less about our souls.
Isn't lying a sin btw? Looks like the confessional is going to be busy on Sunday.

She may have called herself an atheist, may have made arguments in favor of atheism, but she must have always been on the fence, as she says in her Swan Song:
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.
She must have always had something of a superstitious nature to have believed that there was an anthropomorphic figure creating moral laws. Most atheists I know recognize morality as something that's evolved along with everything else.
Whatever. If this is what makes her happy, it doesn't bother me. It only bothers me when the religious try to impose their religiosity on the rest of us. It's a personal matter. I hope she remembers that.
