In a turn of events that's both absurd and sad at the same time, writer Anne Rice a former queen of occult and vampire writings who ostensibly turned to God in 2005 has chosen to reject Christianity, and has chosen to make quite a show of it by using Facebook to announce it. In her own words:
"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 do wonder: is she refusing to be "anti-gay" (whatever that might mean) because her son Christopher Rice is openly homosexual... and thus she doesn't want to deal with the issue from a biblical perspective?]
Sadly, it is failry apparent that Anne Rice, a Roman Catholic, never really knew biblical Christianity, and didn't have a true born again experience through Jesus Christ. Lets face it -- few people, if any, are led into a true relationship with Jesus through that Mary-worshiping, idol-glorifying, pedophile-priest-protecting, Pope-exalting, Bible-violating abomination of a "church" known as Roman Catholicism. And for her to even describe "Christianity" in such harsh and stereotypical terms shows how little she really knows of true biblical Christianity, and brings to mind the words of the apostle John in 1 John 2:19 :
They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us. But they went out, that it might become plain that they all are not of us.
Truly an unfortunate turn of events. May the Lord have mercy on this woman's soul before she departs this life.
