God wants spiritual fruits, not religious nuts

I saw this phrase somethere, God wants spiritual fruits, not religious nuts.

I just thought, you know...that speaks for itself.

Muslim fundamentalists, Pat Robertson...just mixed up nuts. Sometimes I think of them and then think of the corporal works of mercy:

To feed the hungry;
To give drink to the thirsty;
To clothe the naked;
To harbour the harbourless;
To visit the sick;
To visit the imprisoned
To bury the dead.

Then the spiritual works of mercy:

To instruct the ignorant;
To counsel the doubtful;
To admonish sinners;
To bear wrongs patiently;
To forgive offences willingly;
To comfort the afflicted;
To pray for the living and the dead.

Where does it say: go crazy nuts and hurt people, God's gonna get you, love takes a backseat to hatred or punch thy brother?
