Looking for a short story I read 2 or 3 years ago about a robot who worked in a church, and started reading scripture, and was eventually killed by the townspeople because of it.

I read this story online maybe 2 or 3 years ago. It was about a robot who worked as a janitor, I think, in a church. It started asking a lot of religious questions, and reading scripture.
I don't remember the middle of the story at all, but the robot is eventually destroyed by the townspeople and when the priest comes in the next morning he finds the robot in front of a message scratched into the floor, " Forgive them father, they know not what they do" Or something very similar.
So yeah, Robot Jesus Sci-fi Short story. Any ideas?
