socialist Bible verse of the day: Leviticus 25:35-37

If any of your fellow Israelites become poor and are unable to support themselves among you, help them as you would a foreigner and stranger, so they can continue to live among you. Do not take interest or any profit from them, but fear your God, so that they may continue to live among you. You must not lend them money at interest or sell them food at a profit. —Leviticus 25:35-37
Brother Will says: The subject is "your fellow Israelites", but for the sake of hasty readers, I'll note that this is universal advice. Fellow, foreigner, stranger— It doesn't matter. Help everyone, help them equally, and don't make a profit.
