FINALLY: Sanity From the RC Right

Joe Carter, writing at First Things, has finally - no, FINALLY - led the way for conservative Catholics to denounce Ayn Rand's writings. His adjective of choice: "satanic."
I am not a conservative Catholic, but I know it is healthy for the country's politics, and for the Church too, to have well-informed, literate, thoughtful conservative voices. That is why the silence regarding the manner in which Rand is held in esteem by some of the GOP's darlings has been so horrifying. Kudos to Carter for raising the banner of sanity. Welcome to the anti-Randians Mr. Carter. You may not agree with me and mine on anything else, but in the nation's debates about the social contract, this may be the most important to about which we should agree.
