The irony! It burns! (3) Ayn Rand and conservatives

Ayn Rand is in the news again, as conservatives increasingly quote her. They seem to overlook that Rand, a militant atheist who was pro-choice on abortion, hated theocratic social conservatism as much as she hated the moochers and looters. They also overlook the contradiction in asserting that morality has no basis apart from God and then appealing to Rand's moral philosophy.

"Conservatives" who appeal to that russkie atheist harlot are cafeteria conservatives. We True Conservatives™ do not follow a book in which implausible characters give long-winded speeches in support of an arbitrary moral code; instead, we follow the Bible.
