Anne Rice Breaks Up With Christianity via Facebook...
Beliefnet ^ | July 28th, 2010

Posted on 07/29/2010 1:53:32 PM PDT by TaraP

Well, some stars like Amanda Bynes use technology like Twitter to tell the world they are retiring. Some stars like Kelsey Grammar announce the end of his marriage. But today Anne Rice became the first pop culture figure I know that decided to break up with Christians, and she did it using facebook.

On her official website she posted the following announcement via her facebook feed this afternoon:"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.

Okay, I’ll bite. Who (or what) is Anne Rice? And why should I give a rat’s rear end what she does or doesn’t believe??

World biggest vampire promoter renounces Christianity?

Who could have seen it coming?

Anne, you're talented, smart and creative. I hope your eyes open up to see what is right there for you.

If she thinks that's "being a Christian," she was never a Christian to begin with -- she just bought what the mainstream media SAYS ABOUT Christianity.

Deep, she's not.

It is amazing how success in the media world produces the automatic assumption that people care about your day to day preferences and changes in opinions and beliefs.

Since she clearly wants to offend a lot of people, I'll be offensive as well. Why do old women do the fake teeth thing but leave their hair looking like grandma Moses? It only highlights that her teeth are fake.

Was that offensive enough?

Anne Rice as written in recent years in defense of Christianity. She's highly conflicted in that her son that she adores, her only family, is homosexual. And she buys into the canard that those who would deny two homosexuals the rite of sacramental marriage "hate" gays.

She also is struggling with some mean diabetes.

So I don't hear a renunciation of Jesus Christ here, but of Chritianity and Christians.

Probably mental illness from years of being named “Howard Allen”

Anne Rice (born Howard Allen O’Brien on October 4, 1941) is a best-selling American author of gothic, erotic, and religious-themed books from New Orleans, Louisiana. She was married to poet and painter Stan Rice for 41 years until his death from cancer in 2002. Her books have sold nearly 100 million copies, making her one of the most widely read authors in modern history.[2][3][4][5]

Hmmm...name another girl who was given a boy’s name . . . how’d she turn out?

“I refuse to be anti-life.”

That makes absolutely no sense. Democrats ARE the anti-life party.

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.

Anti-secular humanism...it's a religion, Anne, and one must have the Triune God first.

The anti-gay, anti-feminist, etc. stuff is understandable if you mean: "I don't want to be required to hate these people." You aren't. In fact, the call is to minister to them by showing the love of Christ.

If you mean:"I want to affirm what they are doing.", then you are actively telling them to continue a lifestyle that is either killing them and/or leading them down a false path.

Anti-Democrat and anti-life are contradictory. The Democratic party affirms the killing of babies. It is anti-life.

If you mean "hate democrats", then there's no call to do that.

Agree. As my pastor father-in-law says, the problem with Christianity is all the Christians.

If she is leaving Christianity and or thinks it is wrong, why would she say, “In the name of Christ”?

Seems to me she is admitting she knows who and what Jesus is but is openly saying God is wrong.

She is not saying she is an unbeliever, she is saying I am against God.

Shocking prideful words to say the least.

She was raised Catholic and then abandoned it. It has only been in recent years that she went back to her roots. I’m sorry to hear her do this. She will live (or die) to regret it.

Anne, being Anne, is en vogue. Anti-Christianity is quite chic in the American culture now, and besides Christianity is so not suitable for lovers of man more than lovers of God. Arrogance is lethal, unfortunately, and one day she will return humbled. We have to pray for the lost and loosing, hard as it is, sometimes even with clinched teeth.

Just another useful idiot for Hillary, this time weaving a calculated middle-of-the-road, centrist-leaning religious progressive businesswoman meme to subtly undermine confidence in Democrat sub-group affiliation to protect against any Christian association that might undermine collectivist loyalty.

You know, smartest-woman-in-the-world stuff. Elite programming adjustments are not for the little people to worry about. Move along, nothing to see here.

At further reflection, I distinctly detect Beck Derangement Syndrome. And to reject Christ because Constitutionalists correctly originate those laws from the Source? That makes Anne as paltry a believer as a sinner, at best — grist for the secular heathens.

Actually, by her stating, “In the name of Christ, . . .” she does seem to imply that she believes in Christ. Otherwise, the entire statement is a contradiction.
