“As a Catholic, I have been trying to put into words my thoughts about the whole “Social Justice” thing.”

The concept of “social justice” is of and from Satan.

Christians are called to charity, mercy, and love.

The minute you term the acts that should arise from these virtues a matter of “justice,” you have given the government a license to send men with guns to enforce them.

The quality of mercy (and charity, and love) is twice blessed. “It blesseth him that gives, and him that receives.”

Government-enforced redistribution of resources in the name of “social justice” is twice damned. It harms him that gives, and demeans him that receives.

Where you find charity, mercy, and love, there also is Our Lord.

Where you find “social justice,” there also is Satan.
