The Annes broke up with Catholicism. Actress Anne Hathaway revealed this year that when her elder brother Michael came out, “The whole family converted to Episcopalianism.… Why should I support an organization that has a limited view of my beloved brother?” (She added that she didn’t stick with the Episcopal Church either.) Author Anne Rice (pictured), in an unheralded, unassuming Facebook post that became international news, wrote, “For those who care, and I understand if you don’t: Today I quit being a Christian. I’m out. I remain committed to Christ as always but not to being ‘Christian’ or to being part of Christianity. It’s simply impossible for me to ‘belong’ to this quarrelsome, hostile, disputatious, and deservedly infamous group. For ten years, I’ve tried. I’ve failed. I’m an outsider. My conscience will allow nothing else.”
