Of course not, but LifeWithoutFaith has a discussion [properly] mocking claims of that from something called MinistryValues. That idea is simply asinine.
Quick, someone call President Obama! The godly folks of Ministryvalues.com have accomplished what all those highfalutin financial advisers could not. They found the cause of the global economic crisis:
We think it is relevant and important to understand that Alan Greenspan is a devout Atheist. More importantly his belief system can be directly connected to the financial meltdown. Many people are not aware that Alan Greenspan was a disciple of Ayn Rand and a member of her group known as the “Collective“. After earning his Masters in `1950, Greenspan became a 20-year associate of famed philosopher Ayn Rand, author of books “The Virtue of Selfishness”, “Atlas Shrugged”. Greenspan wrote for Rand’s newsletters and authored a chapter for a Rand book.
Ayn Rand, well known atheist, and famous author is also renowned for her central role in the creation of the philosophy known as “Objectivism. This philosophy espouses a deep commitment to atheistic values, celebrates the virtue of the individual and, despises government regulation of any kind other than for crime control. She has said “Money is the barometer of a society’s virtue.” She also said about religion that “it was untrue in all its manifestations and that its consequences were disastrous.”
Yep, you read it right. Mr. Greenspan’s atheism sent the world’s financial markets to Hell in a hand basket. Just like the evil atheistic communists destroyed the USSR. (Ignore the fact that objectivism and communism as polar opposites.)
It is noisy and constantly judgmental people like these MinistryValues idiots who drive otherwise sensible non-believers over to the Democrats. Of course, there is nothing less tolerant in the world than an indignant liberal, don’t be fooled.
