She's disillusioned and crestfallen with Christianity, no doubt, but I'm surprised at her decision to convert to another mainstream religion, especially Islam. I mean, if Jesus didn't do it for her, I can't imagine that Muhammad would. I would have expected something more akin to the Bahia.
I have to wonder why because it's more restrictive than Catholicism and more barbaric (Some sectors are anyway).
She claimed that she left being Catholic because of all the accusations regarding child sex abuses but in some cases this also goes on in the Islamic faith as I've read in the media, so what exactly is she doing it for?
Why not become Buddhist or Hinduist?

Sorry but Catholic priest abuses of children and the cover ups involved has no comparisons.
Madrassas allegedly ‘infested’ with sexual abuse of minors
Sexual abuse in Pakistan’s madrassas is as common as discussing it is taboo, says an Associated Press (AP) investigation....
The past decade has seen hundreds of cases of clerics sexually abusing children reported in the media, with 359 cases written about in the press. This number is “barely the tip of the iceberg”, according to Munizae Bano, executive director of Sahil, an organisation that works towards eradicating sexual abuse of minors and tallies cases of abuse in the media.
The madrassa system reaches at least two million children and is ‘infested’ with sexual abuse according to a senior official at a ministry tasked with registering cases of such abuse.
The official went on to compare the nature of abuse with that of the Catholic Church. “There are thousands of incidences of sexual abuse in the madrassas,” he says. “This thing is very common, that this is happening.” He wished to maintain anonymity due to the threat of physical violence by militant organisations. His position on militant groups has already led to him being targeted by suicide bombers.
