Promoting his executive action on immigration policy in Nashville on Tuesday, President Barack Obama cited a seemingly non-existent Bible verse to justify his unilateral move.

“I think the good book says don’t throw stones in glass houses,” Obama said. He added, “or make sure we’re looking at the log in our eye before we are pointing out the mote in other folks eyes.”

As noted by Twitchy, reporter Charlie Spiering was one of the first to call the “verse” into question:

Obama also reportedly cited the Biblical story of Mary and Joseph being denied a room at the inn while Mary was pregnant with Jesus Christ as another analogy to support his executive action on immigration.
