Quitting 'Christianity'

Novelist Anne Rice will "quit being a Christian," but remains "committed to Christ," she said in July.

Rice, who wrote vampire fiction before her "Christ the Lord" series, returned to the Roman Catholic Church in 1998 after a 30-year absence.

Christians are a "quarrelsome, hostile, disputatious, and deservedly infamous group," she said. "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."

Anne, Anne, if you are REALLY "committed to Christ", then you are a Christian, and nothing can snatch you out of His hand.

It seems there are plenty of things Ms. Rice has no problem being.

 A supporter of late term abortions. Outspoken supporter of President Clintons infidelity. Code Pinks actions. Thought nothing wrong with art where Cross of Christ was dipped in urine. Actions of Fidel Casto, Hugo Chavez and other Dictators. The great thing about the internet is the ability to research individuals past.
