“Three things taught me Conservative love: Jesus, Ronald Reagan, plus Atlas Shrugged” - David Rufful and Josh Riddle in their video: "The Young Con Anthem"

Jesus and Atlas Shrugged? A commenter on an earlier post here wrote: "How on earth are you reconciling A Course in Miracles with Ayn Rand? It boggles the mind."

Of course a mind will choose to be boggled if it sees two seemingly dissimilar things and says to itself, "Trying to reconcile those is too much work for me."

There would be a temptation to think this commentator might be a liberal. Because liberals have very lazy minds, unwilling to look at either the immorality of their policies or the ultimate destructive results ... like non-thinking cultists, star-gazingly invested in the latest "progressive" utterances.

On the other hand, a lazy mind is not the only reason for unwillingness to examine seeming dissimilarities. A belligerent mind will also refuse to look deeper than surface appearances, usually a mind with a strong ego-vested interest in defending a cult's belief system at all costs.

To begin recognizing what Jesus Christ and Ayn Rand shared in common one would have to have what is called an open mind. One would have to say something like, "What do these conservative boys see in Ayn Rand that they also see in Jesus Christ?" Maybe a beginning answer can be found HERE

Atlas Shrugged is one of the world's greatest novels, more widely sold in America than any book other than the Holy Bible. If you want to really understand what is happening in America today, you'll want to read Atlas Shrugged.

"God's laws will keep your minds at peace, because peace IS His Will, and His laws are established to uphold it. His are the laws of freedom, but yours are the laws of bondage. Since freedom and bondage are irreconcilable, their laws CANNOT BE UNDERSTOOD TOGETHER. The laws of God work only for your good, and there ARE no other laws beside His. Everything else is merely lawLESS, and therefore chaotic." -Jesus Christ in A Course in Miracles
