A commonly accepted definition of Justice is that it is a moral standard of all men to one another requiring them to perform their social and moral as well as legal obligations to each other and to grant to each other all that fairly be granted.
The importance and significance of justice can never be underestimated in the affairs of men. This is so because according to Pope Pius XII, just as, in fact, there can be no peace without order so there can be no order without justice.”
Verily, justice occupies the highest place in the hierarchy of human values. Under the Old Testament particularly in the Book of Micah, the teachings of the prophets of Israel were summarized into one verse only: “to do justice; to show constant love and to live in humble fellowship with God.”
Actually, justice is synonymous with righteousness in the sense that what is righteous is just and what is just is righteous.
Indeed, it is important to be just for according to Confucius “heaven gives long and good life to the just.” His statement finds strong support in two biblical passages, to wit:
“Righteous men – men of integrity – will live in this land of ours. But God will snatch wicked men from the land and pull sinners out of it like plants from the ground.” (Proverbs 2:21-22)
“The Lord puts a curse on the house of wicked men and blesses the homes of the righteous.” (Proverbs 3:33
Tonight we will discuss the Criminal Justice System and why it is not working for black people. We will also discuss a case here in Inkster, Michigan concerning the beating of a 57yo African American Male below:
Fighting back tears, a Detroit man and longtime auto worker with no criminal history, described how Inkster police officers dragged him from his car one night in January, choked him, beat him and Tasered him during a traffic stop that was caught on patrol car video.
"He was beating me upside the head," Floyd Dent, 57, told a horde of reporters and TV crews during a press conference at his attorney's office Wednesday afternoon, as tears trickled his cheeks. "I was trying to protect my face with my right arm. I heard one of them say, 'tase the M...F. '"
The Jan. 28 incident was caught on police video cameras and is making national news. It shows Inkster police pulling over Dent in his 2011 tan Cadillac near South River Park Drive and Inkster Drive shortly before 10 p.m. The two officers approach with their guns drawn. As Dent opens the door, they pull him out and shove him to the ground. Dent does not appear in the video to be resisting arrest.

In case you missed the "lecture and discussion" (more one sided "lecture") that the Missoula YWCA presented March 27, you just may find this episode really interesting. The "Y" classified this little get together under their Community Social Justice Series – CSKT Water Compact. The event tags were CSKT Water Compact, Racial Justice. Yep you read that right! "Racial Justice"
This is from their website:
"For our March YWTalks, we will host Mary Stranahan of the organization Montana Water Stewards for a lecture and discussion about the proposed CSKT-Montana Compact. According to the Reserved Water Rights Compact Comission, the Compact “will make new water available for commercial and irrigation use, end the water administration void on the Flathead Reservation, allow for economic development under conditions of legal certainty on and off the Reservation, and facilitate the completion of the statewide general stream adjudication.” For more information, contact Organizer Amanda at firstname.lastname@example.org. 406 543 6691
TVFM did attend and what you will hear in this episode is the raw uncut, unedited audio clip of this "lecture", accompanied with TVFM's comments. After which you just might contact the "organizer", not for infromation but to give her a piece of your mind and some real CSKT compact data!
BTW There was another suprise speaker. Tune in to find out.
Tonight we will discuss the need of black leadership in the black community in order to reduce police brutality; The reason these problems are redundant is because we do not have representation that looks out for our better interest. Tokensim is and has gotten to be a sneaky, dinosaur method of failed leadership that is not effective in the year 2015. This was an experiment that has failed and is ineffective in the black community. We need strong, God-fearing, moral Black leadership that is looking out for our best interest.
MaryLovesJustice Prayer Meeting begins a new lesson: "The Secret Rapture Already Began." GUESTS ARE INVITED TO CALL (818)572-2947 at 9pmPacifc on Sunday nights. The bible does not teach that the Rapture is necessarily a single event, as is depicted in the best selling book, "Left Behind." The first recorded Rapture regarded Enoch, and only he was taken (Gen. 5:24). It is my belief that the Rapture could be happening in a series of cataclysmic events such as the earthquakes of Japan and Haiti, the flood of Katrina, and the destruction of the World Trade Center buildings. Why should God take His children all at once and warn sinners to repent?
Jesus told a parable about a rich man in hell who wanted Lazarus to be sent to earth from paradise to warn the rich man's brothers to repent and avoid hell. "Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them" (Luke16:21). God is apparently not interested in proving His Word to sinners or using miracles to convince them of His existence and power or His great love for them. The most miraculous thing sinners may see before dying and beginning to fall forever through hell's hot lava and flames could be Christian men and women standing before them like I am now to urge YOU to repent and be saved. "Today is the day of salvation."
"Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep [in death], but we shall all be changed" ~1 Cor. 15:51.
