This is a Bible verse we put up each day as the skeletal index finger emerging from beneath the black-robed arm of the grim reaper—and pointing straight at every American fundie as a warning.
How much are you individual fundies and your fundie churches spending to help those Jesus called “the least of these”? Let me guess. Your annual budget is $100,000, and you spend about as much on “the least of these” as you do on mowing the church lawn. All the rest is spent on church bills and evangelism.
You fundies are widely known for joining your Republican Party masters in supporting plans to severely cut and/or permanently destroy government entitlement programs that were created specifically to help “the least of these.” You know: hungry people, sick people, frail old people, poor people, and other needy people. The Republicans gave you your excuses too—forget about Jesus. Your ears were on your Republican masters, and oh how you loved those excuses too because they would leave a lot more money in your personal pockets. Just write off “the least of these” with the automatic Republican assumption that all of the “least of these” are a bunch of lazy, lying, stealing, worthless creeps who want to suck on the government tit rather than work and take care of themselves. And besides, you said: “We can no longer afford to help them because our country is $19 trillion dollars in debt and our nation is broke.” Helping them would violate the wise money management verses in the Book of Proverbs. Yeah!! Yeah!!! The Book of Proverbs!!! That’s the ticket!!!
English fools!!!! Where in the Bible do God and Jesus say that “money is more important than people.” I dare you to find such a place. I triple dog dare you. Money is not more important than people. The Republican Party thinks money is more important than people—and you fundies are spiritually sold out to them. Sold out!!!
World history records that you fundies made a very special effort to destroy the Social Gospel Movement within the churches around the world—and after you succeeded—you then came back to your home churches in the United States to publicly gloat about it with great spiritual pride and arrogance. Some of you still gloat about it today, as one of my Sunday school teachers did openly in a Southern Baptist Convention Church in the 1980s. People suffered and died because of the help you withdrew from them—and some cursed the name of Jesus because they thought your receding hand was the hand of Jesus. Your fundie ancestors have the blood of the “least of these” dripping from their hands—and so do you too. Jesus has something to say about what you did and what you are continuing to do in your cold hearts and your continuing hatred for the “least of these.” Listen up fundies—and listen up good—because as you are so fond of saying—your time is short:

When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
32 and before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
33 and he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 for I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36 naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
42 for I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal. (Matthew 25:31-46)
