About a year and a half ago I brought up the example of author Anne Rice in a a post here about the role that religion (Roman Catholicism in particular) likely played in the development of many people’s erotic consciousness — Rice’s in particular. The post was provoked by a discussion of Rice’s highly public conversion to Christianity.

Well, as of a couple of weeks ago, Rice has decided she’d had enough.

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.

A somewhat snarky commenter was moved to ask “Does this mean I can enjoy The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty again?”

For my part, I doubt I can improve any of this by further commentary, so I shan’t try. Hat tip on this one to Andrew Sullivan.
