• Ann Rice decides to stop being a Christian

    Anne Rice announced on Facebook yesterday that she's quitting Christianity as a matter of conscience.

    Wrote the author:

    "For those who care, and I understand if you don't: Today I quit being a Christian. I'm out. I remain committed to Christ as always but not to being 'Christian' or to being part of Christianity. 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 outsider. My conscience will allow nothing else."

    She followed that up with another message:

    "As I said below, 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."

    I have to agree with this. I have distance myself from "Christian" faith for a long time now. There are good people in every group but very few groups that are good.
