Libertarianism and Religion

-Lew Rockwell
Libertarianism, as a political philosophy, is neither atheist nor religious, as Murray Rothbard said, but linking it to Ayn Rand’s virulent hated of Christianity was, he thought, strategically stupid as well as unlovely. See Wendy McElroy.

I should note that Murray, a man of impeccably bourgeois views across the board, was pro-Christian, and especially pro-Catholic, though he himself was not a man of faith.
