“Truly, I Say To You, I Do Not Know You"

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.


Independent media has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies.   Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook.  Never before has independent media been more endangered.  If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support our critical Winter campaign now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing.
