Leawood, KS – Writer Anne Rice is best known for her vampire novels, which she moved away from when she became a faithful Catholic. But she recently renounced her Christianity very publicly, saying that too many Christians are anti-gay, anti-feminist, an anti-science.
Local Methodist Minister Adam Hamilton responded, in an opinion piece in The Washington Post.
Rev. Hamilton is the founder and senior pastor of one of the largest churches in the Kansas City area, The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection. The church has three campuses, including one in downtown Kansas City, and a congregation of 17,000 people.
Rev. Hamilton writes about some of the issues that Anne Rice brought up in his new book When Christians Get it Wrong. It's aimed at young people, who he says are increasingly turning away from Christianity.
