Is the Tea Party Christian?

A much better article than my own ruminations clearly establishes that the answer is “no”.  Neither Ayn Rand’s rancid Objectivism nor warmed-over Glibertarianism, both central (along with eye-rolling paranoia and thinly-veiled racism) to the Tea Party are compatible with Christianity.

  1. Respectfully, I disagree. One of the tenets of the Tea Party is that our inalienable rights come from the Christian God.

  2. That’s fine, and I respect your respectfulness, but that doesn’t really address any of the points the author of the article makes. Just saying that our inalienable rights come from the Christian God doesn’t make the Tea Party any more Christian than putting a Fish logo on your car makes one a Christian

  3. Oh, I agree with you as we are on the outside looking in. They will say it’s all about their beliefs, not their actions.
    You’re right, they’re wrong. But they couldn’t care less.
