So there’s a meme I’ve been building on for a a while, and it’s how the modern Republican party, guided by the economic “principles” of Ayn Rand (deconstructed here…btw, it’s a hilarious coincidence that Bioshock’s Randroid pro/antagonist has the same last name as the real world subject of this post) is at complete odds with the moral principles of one Jesus Christ. This wasn’t a particular difficulty for Ayn Rand, she was a committed Atheist. It’s a bit of a larger conundrum when allegedly “Christian” politicians adopt the same amoral moral code as the aforementioned Atheist (one of pure reason and profit).
It’s what leads to uncomfortable moments like this….
While I’m not really into the citizen-journalist-camera-bible-ambush thing…when dealing with flaming hypocrites that want to screw over the weak in favor of the rich and claim it’s in the name of Christ…I’m fine with pretty much everything up to, and perhaps including, flaming whips.
Larger media outlets are now slowly growing the (female) balls necessary to call out this hypocrisy of, literally, biblical proportions.
