Yea or Nay, Dale?

Libertarian Extraordinaire and Christ Church Elder Dale Courtney yesterday featured this on his Right-Mind.us blog:

Ayn Rand Quote of the Day
“I am not the means to any end others may wish to accomplish. I am not a tool for their use. I am not a servant of their needs. I am not a bandage for their wounds, I am not a sacrifice on their altars” – Ayn Rand.

Rand appears to have had quite an influence on the writing of local GOP Christian campaign literature, and it seems odd that someone who professes devotion to Christ would speak in ways that reflect Randian themes. And I really can’t imagine what a Christian Elder would have to do with Rand’s ideals.

So I would love to hear from Dale on this one. Does he include the quote above disapprovingly or approvingly? I wasn’t clear. Kudos for him if the former; shame on him if the latter.
