ayan Rand vs Jesus

Rand is neither a good novelist nor a good philosopher. However, she was an intellectual of note, and she has had a powerful effect on American political thinking. Most interesting to me is the obvious fact that her deciples have never read her. If they did, they might be shocked by many of her views--her views on such things as abortion and monogamy. These views are quite different than those of Rand and Ron Paul, and many social conservatives.

Ayn Rand, Jesus

It seems the louder conservative Christians proclaim a message of Jesus as Savior the more they ignor Jesus the prophet of social responsibility.

"Christians in America are no longer people of faith, we’re people of fear. Instead of truly putting our trust, faith, and reliance upon the Way, teachings, and example of Jesus, we put our actual faith in guns, our obscenely over-funded military, and in strong-man  authoritarian leaders."

– Rev. Roger Wolsey, a United Methodist pastor and author, in his blog post, "O We of Little Faith," on Patheos.com
