Will Tomato Leaves from Plants With Blight Ruin Compost?

If our tomato plants have been infected with a blight disease and we have put leaves from them in our composter, is the compost ruined?

Tomato blight needs living plant tissue to survive and will not last long without it, so it is ok to add the tomato leaves to your compost heap.
