She went about her decision in a logical, well-reasoned way: she studied opposing views and formed her own conclusion. What a shame we are expected to tolerate the intolerant.
Here’s a quote from one of her ridiculers:
In a withering critique of Heffernan’s arguments, however, Gawker writer Hamilton Nolan noted: “We are not saying you’re a bad person, Virginia, but you should probably expect that, from now on, when people read your musings on, say, the future of internet communications, they might stop, in a moment of gathering doubt, and recall that you are a science-phobic angel-believing climate change skeptic, and that therefore your dedication to facts is somewhat in question.”
“This could, and should, erode your credibility, in the eyes of those elitist readers who value things that are based on ‘evidence.’ So kudos to you for being brave enough to admit to your own hilarious prejudices again common sense,” he added.

Synonyms for dope: Informal. One deficient in judgment and good sense: ass, fool, idiot, imbecile, jackass, mooncalf, moron, nincompoop, ninny, nitwit, simple, simpleton, softhead, tomfool
“But where is your Christian tolerance and love?”, you may ask. I have none for those who make a career out of deliberately blaspheming and flipping the Great I AM the finger.
