An injustice committed against anyone is a threat to everyone. (Charles Montesquieu, 18th century French lawyer and political philosopher)

There is a lot of talk today about “marginalized” people: minority people groups that are often ignored: the elderly, the poor, and those of certain ethnic or religious backgrounds. When one of them is treated unjustly, it may go unnoticed. If not addressed, however, such discrimination will ultimately produce injustice to the larger populace.

Whoever sows injustice reaps calamity. . . . When justice is done, it brings joy to the righteous but terror to evildoers. . . . The righteous care about justice for the poor. (Proverbs 22:8; 21:15; 29:7)
