Anne Rice the author of Interview with a Vampire has announced that she is leaving christianity.
“For those who care, and I understand if you don’t: Today I quit being a Christian … 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.”
Yeah! She is tired of the hate. Good job Anne.
“My faith in Christ is central to my life. My conversion from a pessimistic atheist lost in a world I didn’t understand, to an optimistic believer in a universe created and sustained by a loving God is crucial to me,”
…atheist lost in the world? What does that even mean. I am and I know lots of atheists – none have said they feel lost. Most are in awe of the wonder and beauty of the natural world.
“But following Christ does not mean following His followers. Christ is infinitely more important than Christianity and always will be, no matter what Christianity is, has been or might become.”
Oh – she follows christ. I think that still makes her a christian. She just wants to do it her own way. Well, as long as part of her money does not go to some church – I wish her the best.
This woman went to get a miracle cure and was dropped 4 ft. The drop broke both of her legs. The people that were taking care of her said she was fine and sent her home.
A devout Roman Catholic, she travelled to Lourdes several times hoping for a miracle healing, and on one occasion meet Pope John Paul II.
She returned for the £450 week long stay in August 2005 with HCPT: The Pilgrimage Trust and Disabled Together.
Two volunteer carers had just helped bathe Mr Mitchell when she fell about 4ft to the ground from a hoist.
She was assessed by a nurse but was told she had not sustained serious injuries, her sisters say.
It was only when Mrs Mitchell returned to the North East that it emerged she had broken her left leg in three places and her right leg once.
For a time, doctors feared they may have to amputate.
After a few weeks Mrs Mitchell left hospital, but, her sisters say, was never the same and died on February 4.
There are no miracles. The church should stop ripping people off!
