Activist to Rep. Ryan: ‘Focus on the Gospel of Luke’

Funny exchange here between an activist from Faithful America and U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis. Ryan chairs the House Budget Committee, and liberal Christians have criticized the 2012 GOP budget as more inspired by Ayn Rand than the Bible.

Daniel Burke from RNS had that story:

in a petition drive, video, ads, and websites, liberal Christians counter that Rand’s dog-eat-dog philosophy is the real inspiration for the GOP budget and its author, House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis.

“You’ve got a guy who is a rising Republican star, and who wrote the budget, saying he’s read her books and Washington needs more of her values,” said Eric Sapp, executive director of the American Values Network, which produced the video. “If you’re a Christian, you’ve got to ask some serious questions about what’s going on here.”

In other words, Sapp argues, you can follow Ayn Rand or Jesus, but not both.
