"I am not primarily an advocate of capitalism, but of egoism; and I am not primarily an advocate of egoism, but of reason. If one recognizes the supremacy of reason and applies it consistently, all the rest follows." Ayn Rand
I leave it to you to decide whether or not your religious practices are 'reasonable'. All other Objectivist-inspired thoughts and actions in your life need not suffer from these practices. Of course, I don't speak for any other 'Objectivist' -type people. I can't deny the power of your religion in your life. And you can't argue the power of my atheism in mine. Why do people even bother??? Of all the things that people can disagree over, religion seems to be the one that brings out the most 'intolerance'.
