Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic Ping List:
Please ping me to all note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of interest.
But her books have amply demonstrated that.
Too bad she has such a prominent and public position to demonstrate her mental and moral confusion.
How pretentious. What theater.
Those are all things the gospel commands YOU to do, Ann. Open your purse and do those things. The fact that you want the state to do them is the biggest cop-out of all. It is un-Christian, as it allows you to simply pay your taxes, and wash your hands of all those nasty hungry, naked people.
Considering how little the average American reads, Anne Rice’s opinion is not likely to affect many votes.
She seems to have good intentions, and to be sincere about her conversion to Christianity, as she understands it. That counts for something, somehow.
And she prefers the interpretation that tells Christians to sacrifice their children to Moloch.
PLEASE be patient with her. God is not finished with her yet. You cannot reasonably expect a new Christian to come to a full and complete understanding about God’s methods in the world instantaneously. There are no instant-Sanka Christians. We are all in process. We all are learning. We all have shortfallings in various aspects of our thought. Rather than call her names like “hypocrite,” please pray that God will show her that you don’t end the horrible practice of abortion by supporting political candidates who wish to continue it.
I think a vampire missed your neck, bit your head, and sucked out your brains, lady.
She modeled the vampire child "Claudia" after her own little girl.
I'm not offering an opinion on her beliefs, just a bit of background for what it's worth...
Those people have a disproportionate influence on politics and public policy, especially as they grow older.
Absolutely no doubt that her conversion from a sort of Goth-Emo Satanism is a GOOD thing . . . but her trumpeting of her conversion as thought it were complete is not. Nor is her confusion about the meaning of the Gospels or the Christian life, or her mixing it with politics.
We all know which road is paved with good intentions . . . .
I know nothing of Anne Rice, but could it be she is new to Christianity? If so, it may just take a little more time before she is able to justly apply principle to real life. I was a Christian earlier than I was a conservative. There was a buffer period.
Those values involve feeding the hungry, giving drink to the thirsty, clothing the naked, visiting those in prison, and above all, loving ones neighbors and loving ones enemies.
hmm Hillary won’t feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, clothe the naked, visit those in prison and love ones neighbors...
but she sure loves our enemies!
>>>She modeled the vampire child “Claudia” after her own little girl.
Interview is the one Anne Rice book I have read.... if this (the above) is true, this is one sick woman.
She cannot be pro-life and be pro Hillary........that is an oxymoron! She may be swift with words but her thinking is very shallow.
I expect those most likely to care what she thinks are already going to vote Democrat.
Her conversion is recent, in the last two or three years, iirc. I’ve experienced ongoing conversion, myself, and continue to find ways I need to change to be consistent with my profession of faith. I hope Anne Rice will, as well.
I don’t think Anne has read “Screwtape Letters” just yet.
She came a long way from Vampires to Christ the Lord Out of Egypt. I really love that book. She’s a great writer. She’ll come around. She still has a long way to go on her journey.
