“Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”

from Holy Bible (NIV) – Matthew 25 on Rap Genius

Meaning

In the 2008 presidential election, the Matthew 25 Network PAC endorsed Barack Obama for the presidency. This passage was promoted by factions within the Democratic Party as Biblical support for their views of social justice. Proponents argued that there was a far greater biblical imperative toward social justice than for other causes traditionally associated with Christianity (abortion, birth control, end of life issues, etc.)
