The latest round of republican rhetoric regarding contraception has left my head spinning. Sure, I expect the social conservatives and elements in the tea party to brush off the abortion issue every four years but the out and out open attack on contraception and Planned Parenthood was beyond my wildest imaginings. Its a horrifying thing and proof positive that freedom can not be taken for granted for so much as a minute These are issues that I thought were settled either before I was born or shortly thereafter - nearly 50 years ago!

The Book of Cletis wrote a very compelling post on the disconnect between the Christian right and their support of such supply -side economic policies that reek of the “let them eat cake” mentality. How on earth does the worship of Ayn Rand square with Christianity, the Golden Rule and teachings of Christ as portrayed in the four Gospels? The Gospels are replete with numerous parables and teachings that leave no room for doubt as to how Jesus would have responded to the likes of Rand. After all it was Christ who said - “And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.”

I want to thank The Book of Cletis for allowing me to republish this blog. I have my own take on the Ayn Rand/ Fundamentalist Christian conundrum - and will put that forth in a follow-up post of my own. The irony of Fundamentalist Christians fawning over Atlas Shrugged is not lost on me - but it is a topic I have not brought up before on this blog. Meanwhile, enjoy this post it is very well written and be sure to stop by The Book of Cletis - it is a blog that is on my daily reading list.
