all religions do this

when modern conservatives say "ayn rand" they don't mean the actual writer who hated religion, called abortion "a moral right" and disliked saint reagan. instead they pick and choose the bits they like about rand (her embrace of selfishness, her dislike of the welfare state, her simplistic dichotomy between the "moochers" and "producers"), and disregard the rest.

just like they do with reagan! and jesus!
