Christianity and Ayn Rand

“Fred Clark”:http://www.patheos.com/community/slacktivist/ comments on an article “regarding the incongruous support among the Religious Right for _Atlas Shrugged_”:http://www.ethicsdaily.com/news.php?viewStory=17824, a novel written by a woman who had nothing but withering scorn for Christianity.

What made me laugh, though, was “this comment”:http://www.patheos.com/community/slacktivist/2011/05/05/theyre-spreading-blankets-on-the-beach/#comment-198080978:

bq. Yeah, that’s always been one thing that boggles me, that folks thinks you can hold a Bible in one hand and a copy of Atlas Shrugged in the other. It’s like they want to hurry American Christianity into it’s final resting place as The First Church of Kicking People When They’re Down. They’ve almost got Christ completely removed from their teachings, he’s just the name on the letterhead you keep for tax purposes.

“The First Church of Kicking people When They’re Down” sounds like something Warren Ellis would have created for _Transmetropolitan_.
