CHANGES ONE ANNIE:

Newsweek is relating the account of Anne Rice and her conversion - I should say reconversion - to Christianity. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/9785289/site/newsweek/

Rice, famous for a series of riveting novels covering occult subjects, has gone back to the other side:

"I promised," she says, "that from now on I would write only for the Lord." She opines Jesus is "the ultimate supernatural hero ... the ultimate immortal of them all."

I dunno. I guess I'm just too skeptical for this sort of thing, too skeptical to ever view the convert's experience and the impulses it creates as real or even genuine.

Jesus is the ultimate supernatural hero?

If there's a God, and if he's following this tale, I bet he's pounding his head on his desk, ranting "Why? What in my name did I do to merit this??? Free will my omnipotent ass!"

Comments:
"...I dunno. I guess I'm just too skeptical for this sort of thing, too skeptical to ever view the convert's experience and the impulses it creates as real or even genuine..."

What do you want Possum? Her conversion probably killed her career. She knows it and she's sticking with it. Why would she fake that???
