The Bible is Distinctly NOT Republican

Matthew 25:35-40 says “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’”

That sounds pretty much opposite to what today’s GOP believes. If the GOP were to write this passage it would say:

For I was hungry and you told me if I don’t work I don’t eat, I was thirsty and you told me to stop asking for handouts, I was a stranger and you took my children and put them in cages, I needed clothes and you told me to get a job, I was sick and you told me I should have gotten a job with health insurance, I was in prison and you said I had it coming and that my kind commit most of the crimes.
