Former President of a Secular Free Thought Society becomes Catholic

This is a syndicated post from The Curt Jester. [Read the original article...]

Imagine society’s collective shock if Hillary Clinton were to join the National Rifle Association, if members of the Westboro Baptist Church were discovered frolicking at a gay bar or if Quentin Tarantino were to announce plans to make a Justin Bieber documentary.

Josh Horn’s friends were hit with a shock wave of that magnitude when Horn, then an ardent atheist, announced his resignation as president of the Secular Free Thought Society, an ASU club known for its skepticism of religion. Horn had committed the ultimate taboo and sealed his self-imposed excommunication with one act: he decided to become a Catholic.

An interesting conversion story reported in a magazine for Arizona State University and is well worth reading.  The opening paragraphs are a bit over the top, but the actual story of his life and conversion is more straight-forward.  His description of what happened after he had read the Litany of the Sacred Heart is also something I can understand.

“I was actually kind of annoyed that it happened, and scared – not comforted in the least,” Horn says. “I didn’t want it, I didn’t think it was possible. It just happens, and you come out of it realizing that this obliges you to change your life and the entire course you thought it was taking immediately.”
