We didn't think this would stick!
The original baddest bitch behind seksi, HOMOlicious vampire fiction (suck it, Stephenie Meyer!), Anne Rice, quit writing the The Vampire Chronicles - and pretty much everything not related to God - years ago to focus on her new found Christianity, much to the dismay of readers and crazy vampire people everywhere!
However, the author announced yesterday via Facebook that she was over that shiz because she refuses to agree with some of the Church's doctrine!
"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.
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."
Wow! Pretty strong words!
We understand that trying to reconcile between personal beliefs and the restrictions imposed by organized religion is a difficult one, so good for you for refusing to compromise what you believe to be right!
And we have to ask - does this mean that we'll get more Lestat?!
We hope so!
What do U think?? Do U understand where Anne Rice is coming from??
