Bookworm Room's posts are invariably thought provoking. One of her most recent posts, Anne Rice & Neo-Paganism, is an incredibly interesting post indeed. It touches on pre-Christian paganism, Christianity, the Bible, syncretism, Medieval Church history, St. Augustine and the Just War theory, in addition to Ms. Rice and her recent un-conversion from Christianity. I highly recommend reading her post. I disagree with Ms. Bookworm on some of the historical points (see Comment #40), but any discussion that includes all of these topics is well worth a read. In addition, do see the Anchoress's take on Anne Rice's misunderstanding of Catholic doctrine.
