I QUIT!!!!

It is all over the web now that Anne Rice, author of "Interview with a Vampire" and many other works including a series on Christ the Lord, has given up on Christianity. Not Christ, just Christians and Christianity. A friend of mine posted a short piece to his blog from author/speaker/theologian Brian McLaren regarding Mrs. Rice's announcement. I think that anyone who has regularly read this blog will have a good idea of how I feel about this, but I, like my friend, am interested in how others feel about it. Perhaps I should rather say how others think about it. Anne's renouncement is nothing new these days, so feel free to broaden the discussion.

My only input at the outset of this discussion will be that we remember, as we speak and write, those who have gone before us.

hey brad
read your comments to your friends post and i cant beleive how much i want to hug u- both- the thing is that Christians just simply have a bad name for all the bad that has been done in the Name of Christ. the world - esp thte muslim world views the USA as a 'Christian' nation. if i was looking at that nation -as a whole- as Christian, what i would think of Christian would be much what your friend said. the dysfunctional lying to the dysfunctional and wanting them to be like them-or else.
the Christian i want to be and pray fervently for all to be, is that one who, like my Friend Jesus, walks among all people with love. if i have to die to say "i love Jesus" - i guess i'm dead already and must live only in HIM
