We study Ayn Rand for the same reason we study Creationism

Alan Wolfe on Ayn Rand:

In the academy, she is a nonperson. Her theories are works of fiction. Her works of fiction are theories, and bad ones at that. Should the Republicans actually win in 2012, we might need to study her in the academic world. It would be for the same reason we sometimes need to study creationism.

    how about the koo-kooo-kooooo remark,Christians read from the quran???? from putilps across America ? Must be some of that stuff Ron Paul wants to legalize.,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Dingbat!NEWS BRIEF: Christian Churches Read Quran from Pulpits across America , Patriot News, October 31, 2011 How would you feel if your pastor stood in the pulpit this past Sunday opened what you believed to be his Bible and then started to read passages completely unfamiliar to you. Then in the midst of the reading you hear him say Allah instead of God and you realize he is reading not from his Bible, but from the Quran. How would you feel and what would you do? Dingbat does a cuckoo over the nest!
