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.
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.~ Anne Rice ~
as announced on her Facebook page
I resonate with these words.
Then today I saw this. I admit, I didn't read the article...just the headline. If the headline is true, I don't need to read the article. If someone wants to inform me that the headline is not true, I am willing to listen to the facts.
If the headline is true, then I really agree with Anne.
God help us all.
