2. It is!

Ayn Rand offers Satanism for atheists. All the benefits of satanism without having to worship Satan.

3. most christians would say

all athiests are satanist, whether they knowingly worship 'satan' or not.
it would be blamed on the devil for some how tricking them into believing what they believe, and theyve been corrupted by him through society n what not..

i dont believe this...
but ive definitely encountered religious folks who do.


the church of satan is totally up Ayns road tho.. its totally an ego based 'youre a god in yourself' type of religion

she claimed she hated anarchy, but honestly was an anarchist herself..whether she wanted to admit it or not... she was a sociopath with dillusions of grandor..
ive heard so many interviews with her where she complains 'people are stealing my ideas'..
as if she wants someone to do something about it, or be punished for it... and i cant help but think.. you dont mean by the government do ya ayn ? lol

5. Well, a lot of people don't really understand the lack of a belief in god.

I called it "satanism for atheists", only because Ayn Rand was atheist. Most atheists are just cynical realists / nihilists with just as good sense of morals and human decency as anyone else. Ayn Rand is not a typical atheist, from what I understand.

The Marquis De Sade was an infinitely better writer than Ayn Rand. He also had a sort of satanic philosophy. where you should do whatever you want, rape whomever you want, and not feel the slightest bit guilty about it. In fact, you should be congratulating yourself for raping and corrupting and taking advantage of fools!

4. This definitely needs to get around...

pallin' around with Satanists and Atheists ... not your everyday family values party. Think I'll send it to SarahPac. Then to the churches around ... maybe with the attachment that she's merely a Militant Russian Atheist.

6. Oh please

The attention span of your average Republican is so painfully short, no accusation of Satanism or atheism could possibly hurt the Romney/Ryan ticket where their base is concerned.

At the very least, you'd merely be enabling further bigotry against non-believers.

8. They just pay lip service to Christian values, they don't care, just give them money

and power. As an aside, when they fight for prayer in public schools, I always wondered who would be leading the kids in prayer, the guy on the right maybe?

9. Now we know what the real Republican religion is.

All that Christian talk is just the the great deceiver plying his trade.

Satanism is at the heart of the GOP.

11. The wolves find sheep's clothing to work best

After all, these "Family Values" people seem to have the most "interesting" sex lives...if you can ever catch them in the act.

12. Irony

Anton Lavey's philosophy holds as sins: Hurting animals, children and the environment. I'm not an expert on Rand, but I think she managed to out-evil Mr. Big Bad CoS founder.
