Anne Rice quits Christianity with eloquence

On her Facebook page Anne Rice publicly quit Christianity today. Here is what she said:

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.

And:

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.

Why would ANYONE want to belong to such a group?

Now the question is this: How long before Anne Rice’s rational brain begins to understand that the reason such a group can exist is because God and Jesus are imaginary?

    Christ taught love. Christians are all about hate. Hypocrisy.

    He quote:

    “My faith in Christ is central to my life. My conversion from a pessimistic atheist lost in a world I didn’t understand, to an optimistic believer in a universe created and sustained by a loving God is crucial to me. But following Christ does not mean following His followers. Christ is infinitely more important than Christianity and always will be, no matter what Christianity is, has been, or might become.”

    Christ never said follow the followers, He said follow Him. I’m glad she finally gets it and will not go back to the “pessimistic atheist”.

    Christ is Christianity. There’s only one book where Christ allegedly outlined his teachings, and it’s the same book that teaches hate, misogyny, murder and slavery.

    You can’t untie them. Sorry.

    Without GOD i would be lost. I don”t understand why everyone else doesn’t get it. Just because your prayers don’t get answered in the way you want them to or something goes wrong in your life doesn’t mean GOD isn’t real. There is a reason for everything. And as for as money goes GOD says give what you can and you will be blessed. And no matter what science says or tries to teach me I will never change my mind. Christianity is believing in GOD and following his word. The bible tells the truth. And although i am only fourteen GOD consumes my life and my heart and will do so forever more. And i hate to break it to but the only way to be saved is to believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that JESUS is LORD! Otherwise you will burn in hell, which is what GOD wants the least. So stop lying awake at night and wondering if there is something more to this life than just existance. And except JESUS CHRIST as your personal LORD and SAVIOR and I PROMISE you won’t be lost anymore. FAITH makes things possible not easy. But wouldn’t you rather be a part of something greater than yourself. Be a part of a GOD that loves you ETERNALLY!

    (In response to 5.A real-ist and 4.Anonymous said …) That was more than even a little bit cruel!!! Why are you so cruel to a fourteen year old child looking for the truth and comfort that is offered by religion?????????? What ever is the truth it’s not easy, for either-side(atheism or theism) or do you think that atheist rave for nothing. I for one am sorry that I ever wrote anything that might be used to hurt children who believe in God. I’m stopping RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW because of you!!! To hell with atheism!!! I see NOW that there are somethings better not said.

    Mostly likely it’s too late to take back words but I remaining anonymous now so no one connects the dots.

    Because the atheist are butt heads. Don’t fall into their delusion. Look at creation and they you know God is there.
