Someone posted a link to her blog on Facebook yesterday and I read the last post on the atheist side. It made me really want to read what she had to say once she moved, but I just can't start reading anything else. Really. I can't. Really, really, really.

I haven't even had time to read Craig on Chesterton and I have to do that.

I know, you just have to give up at some point. I did read Craig's Chesterton things and you'll enjoy them. He also has a very interesting post about Oblomov, which I've never read, which I wanted to comment on but couldn't get my thoughts together.

I've read a couple of Leah's posts (including the conversion one), and I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't track all the philosophy-major stuff. I was feeling like a really, really, really dumb Catholic who converted because . . . uh . . .

Still, pretty cool. And that's interesting re the Catholic boyfriend -- I had thought that either they'd have to break up OR she'd convert, but the possibility of both hadn't occurred to me.

I gave up the idea that I would ever be more than passingly conversant with hard-core philosophy a long time ago. Though I like to think I still love wisdom.:-)

I'm almost certain the breakup was mentioned in one of her posts. I don't know whether this opens the possibility of a renewal. That would be awfully sweet.

I'd never heard of the Unequally Yoked blog before hearing of this rather public conversion. I like the panache of it -- moving the blog from the "atheist portal" to the "Catholic portal" of her host site -- but the publicity is a little concerning. I have been praying for her through the day.

I took a little time to look through some of her old posts leading up to her conversion -- the tag is "Parsing Catholicism". There are some interesting things in there, probably worth looking at when I have more time. (In a few years, in other words!)

I even saw it mentioned on CNN's website. That surprised me. I didn't read the story, just saw the headline. "In a few years"--yeah, I been saying that since the 1970s. I've finally pretty much stopped saying it, not because the time finally arrived but because it's rather late for me to be thinking that way.
