  •  His fealty to Ayn Rand strikes me as far greater (6+ / 0-)

    than his fealty to the Church.  And no, you can't push both at once without total contradiction and lack of integrity.

    •  I've decided to let others (5+ / 0-)

      discuss Rand and Ryan in-depth. There are of course the additional religious issue in that religious are by their nature collectivist, and Rand viewed religion as weak and a subversion of individual will.

      Some Catholic critiques have invoked Rand, and I can see why they would.
