    Vampire Author Dumps Catholicism

    Interesting this woman is religious, usually they stay away from other superstitions.


    Anne Rice: Best-Selling Novelist Explains Catholic Church Exit - ABC News


    Anne Rice has never been one to mince words.


    The novelist on her Christian-themed book, "Christ the Lord: The Road to Cana."


    When her novel "Interview With the Vampire" was made into a movie, she publicly declared her dissatisfaction with lead actors Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt (although she later changed her mind).
    These days, from her home near Palm Springs, Calif., Rice regularly posts reviews of books, records and movies on Amazon.com. She also maintains a very active Facebook page -- on which she recently posted something rather incendiary.
    Watch Dan Harris' interview with Anne Rice today on "World News" at 6:30 p.m. and watch the full story on "Nightline" at 11:35 p.m. ET
    "Today I quit being a Christian," Rice wrote. "I'm out."
    She went on to call Christians, as a group, "quarrelsome, hostile, disputatious and deservedly infamous."
    "I reached a point where I felt that I couldn't be complicit any longer in the things that organized religion was doing. I really saw it as a fairly simple repudiation, you know? I was exonerating myself," Rice said in an interview with ABC News. "I was saying, 'Look, when you -- when you see the persecution of gay people by the Mormon Church or the Catholic Church, I'm not part of this. I'm out. I don't support this anymore. When you see the oppression of women. I'm not part of it. I'm stepping aside. This follower of Christ is not part of that Christianity.' That's really what I thought to say."

    Christians should get a brain as Rice did.

    And they should lead by example and get their brothers, the Jews and the Muslims to leave their folds as well, all part of the same shit.

    Yes as said before, these organisations commit crimes against humanity. Unseen maybe , but if you know what you're looking for ,you will see it.
    They have brought suffering that has become acceptable.

    Vampires aren't scared of garlic... that's another superstition.

    Christians prefer zombies over vampires anyway.
