Although critics of Nathanson’s conversion were perplexed as to how a former atheist Jew became of the the most prominent Catholic pro-life advocates, Fr. McCloskey – who has aided in numerous conversions – said he wasn’t surprised.
“My experience in dealing with Jewish people whom I love dearly is that, the great majority of them, if they want to become Christian, they become Catholic.”
Fr. McCloskey added: “I think his conversion from atheism to Catholicism will be seen as a real turning point in our history.”
