Annals of Ayn Rand Contd: The firefighters who stood by while Gene
Cranick's house in Tennessee burned to the ground because he hadn't paid
a $75 fee "did the right and Christian thing," writes Bryan Fisher of the American Family Association, who praises the "muscular
Christian virtues of individual responsibility" and blasts critics who "have
fallen prey to a weakened, feminized version of Christianity" - and even thus "implicate themselves as
accusers of Christ." Whoah. An international group of firefighters, however, calls the inaction "incredibly irresponsible." The hilarious comments on Fisher's blog side with them; you have to copy it all 'cause, weirdly, it's black on black.
