Anne Rice had a special message for those of a different persuasion this Easter on her Facebook.

“Happy Easter, Gay People of the World: you have indeed risen in the last decades from centuries of persecution and oppression. May this be a great holiday for you all wherever you are. You are winning the battle for equal rights. And your victory over discrimination and hate is a victory for all oppressed persons. Happy Easter!” Rice wrote.

She also made sure to wish children, women and other groups a Happy Easter.

Rice recently left the Catholic church due to the church’s support of gay marriage bans.

Although The Vampire Chronicles author has a gay son, she insists that was not a factor in her decision to make that post.

“My experience with gay people long preceded Christopher coming out of the closet and becoming a gay novelist,” she said.

Rice also wants to make clear that she has not walked away from God, only organized religion.
