I once wrote clerihew about Anne Rice's rediscovery of her Christian faith:
found a pearl of great price.
But she had to make money first
dwelling on an unnatural thirst.
I was skeptical. Sure enough, she recently rejected Christianity, declaring:
"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."
A few years back she wrote about her return to Christianity in Called Out of Darkness.
I guess she's heading back into the darkness.
