Anne Rice has had a religious conversion: She's no longer a Christian. The 68-year-old author wrote Wednesday on her Facebook page that she refuses to be "anti-gay ... anti-feminist," and "anti-artificial birth birth control." She adds that "In the name of ... Christ, I quit Christianity and being Christian. Amen." Her publisher, Alfred A. Knopf, confirmed Thursday that the posting was by Rice. Rice is best known for "Interview with the Vampire" and other gothic novels. Raised as a Catholic, she had rejected the church early in her life, but renewed her faith in recent years and in 2008 released the memoir "Called Out of Darkness: A Spiritual Confession."
