Agree! Sadly, shallow thinkers can never harvest wisdom from people who might have spiritual beliefs different from their own. Rand's religion is not relevant to the fact that her life experiences led to the insight expressed in "Atlas". Many others have had questionable or even offensive personal lives yet were able to offer gifts of wisdom and observation for others. America'a founders often fell short in personal character, yet they left one basic truth for us, that the rights of man were not a gift from government. Should we abandon proven truths just because the speaker has personal failings?
