I don’t share Ayn Rand‘s deification of egoism and untrammeled capitalism, though I was briefly enamored with “objectivism” as a teenager (who wasn’t?). Nevertheless, her emphasis on the use of reason made her a passionate opponent of religion. Here’s a five-minute clip of her defending atheism on three television programs. I don’t recognize the first show, but I think the host of the second is Phil Donohue. As a reader below notes, the third is Tom Snyder.
