Did she become an atheist in the novels? I ask because I recall the episode of TNG when Riker gave Ro grief for wearing her Bajoran earring while on duty. I thought the earring was supposed to signify the Bajoran's religious beliefs.
If you notice Ro wears her earring on the opposite ear of every other Bajorian. Ro explains this in the novels is to "keep those annoying Vedeks from grabbing my ear." She wears it to honor her Bajoran heritage, but doesn't believe in the Prophets after the occupation.
