She wrote at the end of explaining her reason for converting to Catholicism, "...And that is something I can’t prove.”
That's as much as admitting she has no good reason.
To quote the article, Libresco, who had blogged under the banner “Unequally Yoked: A geeky atheist picks fights with her Catholic boyfriend,” said that at the heart of her decision were questions of morality and how one finds a moral compass.
My first observation is that, most typically, when one person converts to their significant other's religion, it is the woman, and that it really usually has more to do with the relationship than with reason.
But if a moral compass is something that tells you what's right and wrong, I'm sure most atheists have something. While I disagree, some atheists base their morality on empathy and/or compassion. What she believes is that her morality must be external to her. So she is the sort of person who tends to be religious: a follower.
