Famed vampire novelist Anne Rice made some news when she noted on Facebook no less that she was leaving Christianity,

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.

In a lot of ways, that’s an odd little screed there. If Rice was bothered by the conservative politics of the church she was going to, why didn’t she just change churches? You are allowed to do that, you know =D. I’ve certainly done it more than a few times.

Also, what is “anti-life” even supposed to mean? And anti-Science? Although I’ve run across a few Christians who believe the world is a few thousand years old or who don’t know much about science, I don’t personally know any Christians who are anti-science. In fact, as a general rule, I find that people who claim Christians are “anti-science” tend to be atheists who’ve come to the errant conclusion that you can’t be Christian and pro-science or who falsely believe evolution and Christianity are incompatible. So, that makes me wonder a bit about who has been getting in Rice’s ear.
