No, I didn’t write this, but I do agree with it. Martin Luther King Jr. wrote this bit of wisdom while sitting in a jail cell after trying to stage a peaceful demonstration. I will not try to explain what MLK Jr. was trying to say, I will let you read his quote directly.
“Now, what is the difference between the two? How does one determine whether a law is just or unjust?” wrote King. “A just law is a man-made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law. To put it in the terms of St. Thomas Aquinas: An unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal law and natural law.”
That is inspiring, and in my humble opinion 100% accurate.
As my by-line state, it’s not about left & right but about right and wrong. It’s nice to know that I have that and a whole lot more in common with such a great man.
