Leah Libresco, a popular US Catholic blogger, Yale graduate, and self described ‘geeky convert’, gave a talk in Dublin entitled ‘Having Better Fights About Religion’.
This talk, hosted by the Irish Catholic and introduced by Ben Conroy took place on July 2nd in St Marys, Bloomfield Ave, Morehampton Rd, Donnybrook, Dublin 4 where The Irish Catholic offices are based. It was streamed live here on iCatholic
Originally an atheist, Libresco started blogging for the online religion website Patheos as a way to debate and discuss religion. As a result of debating with Christians and atheists alike, Libresco converted to Catholicism in 2012. She currently works as an editorial assistant for The American Conservative and regularly writes on her blog ‘Unequally Yoked: a geeky convert picks fights in good faith’. She welcomes others to the conversation and encourages what she describes as ‘Having Better Fights’ – finding meaningful ways to have conversations with those whom you have ideological or religious differences.
