Ayn Rand versus Christianity

Many supporters of free markets and laissez-faire capitalism use Ayn Rand's novel, Atlas Shrugged, and her philosophy of objectivism to support their cause without being aware of her hostility toward Christianity and other religions.

And the case can be made that her philosophies are in direct contradiction to the teachings of Jesus Christ. For example, "Jesus Christ versus Ayn Rand" argues Rand's pursuit of self-interest is contrary to the New Testament lessons of love and compassion for others.
