The Anti-Beatitudes

And he went down with them and stood on a sloping place.  A large crowd of his disciples was there and a great number of people from all over the region who had come to hear him.  Looking at them he said:

Damned are the rich
for yours is the kingdom of hell.
Damned are those who are well fed,
for you have never been satisfied.
Damned are the happy,
for you will finally weep.
Damned are the arrogant
for they will destroy the earth.
Damned are the cruel
for they have never shown mercy.
Damned are the warriors;
they will be called Sons of Hell.

Damned are you when people praise you and laud you.  Weep! Wail and gnash your teeth for harsh will be your torment in hell because of the way you have treated the prophets.
