As you do unto the least of them

Residents of a Westmont public housing complex for seniors said in a federal lawsuit filed Monday that they were coerced and harassed by management into practicing Christianity and pressured to attend Bible study classes.

-- A Lie a Day: Forced into Faith?

Yes. Okay, so:

37 Then the righteous will answer him, "Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? 38 And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? 39 And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?'

40 And the king will answer them, "Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.'

41 Then he will say to those at his left hand, "You that are accursed, depart from me into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels; 42 for I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not give me clothing, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.'

And so sayeth the Lord to the religious fundamentalist:

Yea, I was hungry and you did dangle food before me and beat me until I promised to agree with your political opinions.

I was poor of spirit and you did taunt me.

I needed lodging and you did kick me out.

I was thinking my own ideas and you did abuse me for it.

Get thee behind me, Bigot.
