Bestselling novelist Anne Rice’s high profile conversion to Roman Catholicism raises fascinating questions about the prognosis for progressives in a traditionalist church. It’s my understanding that Rice has converted to Roman Catholicism and she has taken public stands rejecting the Church’s teachings on homosexuality, gay marriage, birth control, and other hot button issues. She is also speaking publicly about her dissent, something that many traditionalists frown upon. Is there talk about excommunicating her or, at the very least, denying her communion? If so, does anyone have any Internet links? If not, why not, given the Church’s increasingly intolerant actions against Catholic public figures and others who dissent from the party line. I have no answers, just questions.
