Anne Rice discusses her decision to quit Christianity

Aug 7, 2010 3:00:00 AM - latimes.com
The novelist says she still believes in God, but she couldn't find a basis in Scripture for some positions taken by churches. And she rejects the persecution of gays and women.

The author Anne Rice, best known for her vampire novels, made waves last week when she declared on her Facebook page that she had "quit being a Christian." Twelve years after her return to Catholicism, Rice said she still believed in God, but that, "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."
