Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Outspoken Atheist and ‘Muslim Apostate,’ Says She Is ‘Now a Christian’

Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a Somali-born writer, political activist, and critic of Islam, has announced her conversion to Christianity. In an essay published on the British website UnHerd, Ali wrote that she “ultimately found life without any spiritual solace unendurable — indeed very nearly self-destructive.”

“I still have a great deal to learn about Christianity,” Ali wrote. “I discover a little more at church each Sunday. But I have recognized, in my own long journey through a wilderness of fear and self-doubt, that there is a better way to manage the challenges of existence than either Islam or unbelief had to offer.”

Ali’s conversion is a significant development, given her past outspoken criticism of Islam. She has been a vocal critic of Islamic extremism and has called for a reformation of Islam. In 2004, she was the target of a death threat after she co-authored the film “Submission,” which criticized the treatment of women in Islam.

Ali’s conversion announcement was met with mixed reactions from commenters on UnHerd. Among the hundreds of responses were those welcoming her decision, while others expressed skepticism. However, Ali defended her decision, saying that she still has “a great deal to learn about Christianity.”

“I discover a little more at church each Sunday,” she wrote. “But I have recognized, in my own long journey through a wilderness of fear and self-doubt, that there is a better way to manage the challenges of existence than either Islam or unbelief had to offer.”
