Anne Rice: ‘I Quit Christianity’

annerice.jpgIn a dramatic series of Facebook posts, novelist Anne Rice declared that she is no longer a Christian.

Check it out: “I quit being a Christian. I’m out. In the name of Christ, I refuse to be anti-gay. I refuse to be anti-feminist. I refuse to be anti-artificial birth control. I refuse to be anti-Democrat. I refuse to be anti-secular humanism. I refuse to be anti-science. I refuse to be anti-life. In the name of … Christ, I quit Christianity and being Christian. Amen.”

Rice wrote Called Out of Darkness: A Spiritual Confession, a memoir about her own conversion to Christianity–making the post a bit more surprising. UPDATE: Our readers respond to Rice’s post.

In another post, Rice also admitted, “I remain committed to Christ as always but not to being ‘Christian’ or to being part of Christianity.” So far, her posts have drawn nearly 2,000 comments and well over 3,000 “likes.” (Via Gawker)
