Ann Rice Quits Christianity

A few years ago, Anne Rice of the Interview with a Vampire novels, says she converted to Christianity.  It seems, however, she couldn’t let go of her real religion– PC.  Andrew Klavan responds to her public show of apostasy:

Spanking porn author Anne Rice has announced on Facebook that she’s quitting Christianity.  According to John Nolte over at Big Hollywood, she made the announcement on Facebook thusly:

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.

What I found really interesting about this is that I feel exactly the opposite.  One of the main reasons I go to church is to remind myself, after the political battles of the week, that the people I so ferociously oppose are still part of the body of God.  It’s difficult, in the hurly-burly of intense disagreement, to follow the injunction to “judge not,” but I think joining in prayer with your fellow Christians even those who might be – gasp! – Democrats is a helpful reminder.  None of us has a monopoly on wisdom, virtue or justice.

Perhaps, as Nolte puckishly remarks, “Rice has ‘elevated’ herself from a Christian to a narcissist.”
