Re: “Ayn Rand and Jesus: The Passion of Paul Ryan

What a shame this fake argument is raging like wildfire. Acknowledging Rand's proven track record of economic and political wisdom - which we can see all around us, as she predicted a great deal of it, down to specific types of mechanism - does not mean a Christian or anyone else agrees with the totality of her thought. It's also very silly to maintain that the Christian commitment to caring for the poor somehow automatically means Progressive politics or anything to do with government at all. Jesus was not pro-State - note who killed him. The Christian injunction is that *we* help the poor - a very libertarian and individualistic approach. Entitlement programs are destroying the economy - $60trillion in unfunded liabilities (compare that to one year's GDP) is just the beginning. It's not compassionate to the poor to bankrupt the country.

It's also curious how after thirty years of screaming that religion must be kept out of politics - and it should, said the Founding Fathers - the Left has discovered religion just in time for the elections.
