Anne Rice Converts Back to Vampirism

“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,” the author wrote Wednesday on her Facebook page. “In the name of … Christ, I quit Christianity and being Christian. Amen.”

Rice will not be taking up vampires again, but she said she is a big fan of the HBO series “True Blood,” enjoyed the first two “Twilight” movies (she has yet to read any of the Stephenie Meyer novels) and is interested in seeing her most famous character, the vampire Lestat de Lioncourt, return to the screen.

In spite of the above story’s emphasis on Rice’s non-return to vampire novels, Rice is, it seems, reverting to the back to the state of the undead.  I have not read her novels, but apparently, her vampires are sometimes homosexual (Lestat de Lioncourt), they are feminist (The Queen of the Damned), and certainly they are wildly erotic.  So when she says that she is leaving the Church because she refuses to stand against homosexuality, feminism and artificial birth control, she seems to be allaying herself once again with the world of vampirism.

This is particularly significant for me as I research the topic of the occult and literature.  The world of darkness is alive and well in the form of “new religious movements.”  Many of them propose themselves to be compatible with Christianity.  Rice goes on:

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.

This is the real peril of literary and theatrical occultism: the promotion of esoteric, occultist, non-conformist Christianity.  And that, my friends is blasphemous, sacrilegious and diabolical.  Satan is pedaling cheap peace, and when we accept it on his terms, he will cut our hearts out.

    Your “god” sounds far scarier than any vampire…

    Our God who out of mercy for us did not cling to His divine stature but clothed himself in lowly human vesture, became a slave, was obedient onto death, even the ignominious death on the cross is some how scary????? Makes no sense.
