See Anne Rice’s awesome Facebook rant to haters

Anne Rice has a way with words as we all know and she uses them so well in this Facebook message to all the haters who converged upon her fan page to spew after she expressed her support of Ellen Page coming out:

Our post commending actress Ellen Page for her courage in coming out as gay attracted a lot of hostility and hate and hate speech — as well as positive and substantive comments. I have banned many from the page today. I will no longer tolerate hate speech in the guise of Christian belief with the usual irresponsible pick and choose bible quotes and talk of “sin” and hellfire. I have had enough of it, and I think the world has had enough of it too. Again, I commend Ellen Page for her bravery in coming out. I hope more celebrities and public figures will be inspired to do so. Anyone who thinks this does not matter is deceiving himself or herself. It matters very much. Gay people in all walks of life suffer from bigotry, bias, superstition, and ignorance. Hats off to Ellen Page! (And please do NOT come here to tell us publicly that you “don’t care.” If you don’t care, don’t expect us to care that you don’t care!).

5 Remarks

  1. Awesome!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. very well said! Kudos to Anne

  3. Why do stupid people bother challenging people with more than 16 brain cells?

  4. As a gay man in a loving relationship with the man that I am engaged to marry, I am touched and filled with hope and encouragement knowing that someday our society will truly recognize all people for whom they are; not biased by sexual orientation for which does not define the character of any person.

  5. I knew I always liked and admired this lady! Now I know why.
