“Your budget,” a group of Jesuit scholars and other Georgetown University faculty members wrote to Ryan last week, “appears to reflect the values of your favorite philosopher, Ayn Rand, rather than the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Her call to selfishness and her antagonism toward religion are antithetical to the Gospel values of compassion and love.”
For the young chairman of the House Budget Committee, it was a timely lesson: However much Ryan may wish it, God does not take sides in politics. Ryan, transparently positioning himself to be Romney’s running mate, may well believe that he is on a mission from God. But in a democracy, such fanaticism makes people such as Ryan unable to make necessary compromises.
[And that last is the reason the GOP has lost support - Reagan's deal with Christian conservatives was a "deal with the Devil"]
Just Insanity! These examples are all around us aren't they? Thank you so much for sharing. Just know that you have awareness... and you don't have to fight these battles anymore. The more insanity is confronted with more insanity (anger and fear) the more they it creates a greater disconnect.
