Anne Rice Supports Same Sex Marriage Rights, Leaves Catholic Church.

I’ve never read any of Anne Rice’s work. My only connection at all to her work is that, when I was in college, I babysat the children of this terrific couple. One time, the dad surprised the mom with a surprise trip to New Orleans for some type of Anne Rice dinner (she was a fan of her work). And now, I’m feeling like Anne Rice is all shades of awesome due to her decision to articulate why she left the Catholic Church, including certain positions they have taken against condom use as it relates to HIV, abortions even under life-saving circumstances for the mother, and same-sex marriage rights. I found the article on Jezebel, though apparently it’s from an interview she recently gave for ABC.
