Why Do Christians Vote For Randians?

I posted about Ayn Rand's contempt for religion here.

This ad does a far better job of allowing her condemn herself with her own words. (HT Michael Tomasky)

Conservatives like William F. Buckley did a great service by reminding Americans that ideas have consequences.  Rand's ideas taken to their logical conclusion will produce consequences as pernicious as the totalitarian state she criticizes.

Update: I missed this post by big boy blogger Andrew Sullivan yesterday.  He gives full treatment to this issue.  HT @coralhei
