Sick, Naked Prisoners

“Then they also will answer, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to you?’ Then he will answer them, saying, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.’ And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.” ~Matt. 25:44-46

You might have an enviable address
 on earth, but HERE is the address you will be judged by: prison.

How are inmates treated in your jails and prisons? Are innocent people's pleas for DNA tests or new trials ignored? Are people jailed for having mental illness? Are children tried and sentenced as adults? Are inmates killed with or without death sentences? Is there torture happening? Are inmates malnourished? Are they denied health care? Are visits constrained? Do they have adequate legal counsel? What have you done about these abuses? Here are your instructions:

Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction. Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy. ~Proverbs 31:8-9 (KJV)

Contact your government officials
