"Then the King will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 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.'And from your Chicago Tribune, some local news about the "least of these":
"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, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.'
"Then he will say to those on his left, 'Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.'
"They also will answer, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?'
"He will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.'
"Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life."
The DuPage County Board on Tuesday refused to permit the opening of a transitional residence for up to 30 foreign refugee children in an upscale residential area near Naperville.No doubt, Illinois' always vocal anti-choice leadership will speak out against the DuPage County Board's callus treatment of these refugee children.
The board voted 12-4 to deny an application from Heartland Human Care Services Inc., of Chicago, to open the facility in a three-story residence at 23W735 Hobson Rd.
The facility would have housed about 30 children, mainly from India and China, who arrive in the U.S. illegally and without parents. Ranging in age from infancy to 17, they would stay for 60 to 90 days while they were being placed elsewhere.
"We are very disappointed at this outcome," said Susan Trudeau, director of Heartland's child welfare program, which operates a similar facility for 54 children in Chicago's Rogers Park neighborhood.
Well, except for one thing -- the refugee children in question are actually born and breathing. And the lives of non-virtual children never seem to merit their outrage.
