What to make of this?
The author Anne Rice, best known for her vampire novels, made waves last week when she declared on her Facebook page that she had “quit being a Christian.” Twelve years after her return to Catholicism, Rice said she still believed in God, but that, “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. I refuse to be anti-Democrat. I refuse to be anti-secular humanism. I refuse to be anti-science. I refuse to be anti-life.
With popular icons like Rice abandoning organized religion, another benchmark in the cultural wars, how does the GOP reach out to libertarian minded folks and keep them. There are a lot of people out there who follow authors like Rice. How big will the tent remain?
