It is not “money” that is the root of all evil.

“The LOVE of money is the root of all evil.”

That is the proper original saying about this.

Money can be put to very GOOD purposes...like donating to the FREE REPUBLIC during the Freepathon!

I think that was covered toward the end of the speech. I presume that Rand used the first because it's so commonly used and cited by the non-productive.

Love of money is a problem for Christians when the love for money, or anything else for that matter, is allowed to supercede the love for God and Christ.

Actually, the Bible says “money is the answer for all things.”

Ecclesiastes 10:19
A meal is made for laughter, and wine makes life pleasant, but money is the answer for everything.
