On July 29, 2010, Rice publicly renounced her dedication to her Roman Catholic faith, while remaining committed to Christ, on her Facebook page — it was about the same time her giant fake teeth started to change colors like mood rings. This woman is a retard!
“For those who care, and I understand if you don’t: Today I quit being a Christian, Rice wrote. “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.”
A few hours later she added the following:
“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.”
She reaffirmed her faith in Christ with stance of non-adherence to organized Christianity an hour or so later:
“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.” Subsequently, in an interview, Rice further clarified her statements:
My commitment to Christ remains at the heart and center of my life. Transformation in Him is radical and ongoing. That I feel now that I am called to be an outsider for Him, to step away from the words, “Christian” and “Christianity” is something that my conscience demands of me. I feel that my faith in Him demands this of me. I know of no other way to express how I must remove myself from those things which seek to separate me from Him.
A few weeks later Rice converted to Islam because it wasn’t quarrelsome, hostile, disputatious, and deservedly infamous. The next day some guys came and tried to cut off her head because she’d written about forbidden subjects for many years.
In an August 7, 2010 interview with the Los Angeles Times, she elaborated on her view regarding being a member of a Christian church: “I feel much more morally comfortable walking away from organized religion. I respect that there are all kinds of denominations and all kinds of churches, but it’s the entire controversy, the entire conversation that I need to walk away from right now.”
In response to the question, How do you follow Christ without a church? Rice replied: “I think the basic ritual is simply prayer. It’s talking to God, putting things in the hands of God, trusting that you’re living in God’s world and praying for God’s guidance. And being absolutely faithful to the core principles of Jesus’ teachings. It’s making money by writing about dicks and pussies and vampires and werewolves and selling that shit to suckers.
Note to grammar police: All the quotations marks were put to the page by Anne Rice in written form. Obviously there are spots where I added tag lines to insult her, but all punctuation was put there by Rice. I only added punctuation where it suited the dopey things I added to this piece.
