The Catholic left dutifully reported that Sirico sees Galt as a Christ-figure, which he never did.

That is the thing that occurred to some of us that day and subsequently.

Any support of a market economy equals libertarianism equals Randism equals heresy.

This proposition got at least a partial airing out last Summer at a conference called “The Catholic Case Against Libertarians” hosted in the lovely offices of Bread for the Poor, offices far larger and far nicer than the poor pro-life group that I run and most others that I know.

Austin Ruse is president of C-FAM (Center for Family & Human Rights), a New York and Washington DC-based research institute.

They couch their arguments in Catholic Social Teaching; the common good, political community, love for the poor, subsidiarity.
