Anne Rice Quits Christianity: Refuses to be Anti-Gay, Anti-Feminist

by SheWired Editors

Anne Rice is no longer a Christian.

The best-selling author of Interview With a Vampire and mother to novelist Christopher Rice posted on her Facebook page that she’s left the religion because she refuses to be “antigay,” “antifeminist,” and “anti-Democrat.”

Rice wrote, “It’s simply impossible for me to 'belong' to this quarrelsome, hostile, disputatious, and deservedly infamous group. For ten years, I’ve tried. I’ve failed. I’m an outside. My conscience will allow nothing else.”

“In the name of Christ, I quit Christianity and being Christian.”..............

I'm unimpressed.

Nice that she pointed out all the negative garbage in Christianity....but she is still clinging to the fairy tale.

That last sentence of hers made my head hurt. "In the name of Christ I quit Christianity" HUH?

oh she's still 'christian' all right. but i give her points for what she did say.

i won't bother you about your religion if you leave it behind closed doors and/or don't attempt to make ME a part of it
