Victor, why don’t we have you define justice and that may help the conversation.[/quote:c3emep9i]

[color=darkred:c3emep9i]My definition would be right in line with the Cathecism.[/color:c3emep9i]

[color=green:c3emep9i]1807 Justice is the moral virtue that consists in the constant and firm will to give their due to God and neighbor. Justice toward God is called the “virtue of religion.” [/color:c3emep9i]

[color=darkred:c3emep9i]So it is clear to me that justice is conditional. Albeit part of love, it requires something of individuals. Something Love doesn’t. Because of this reality, it does trump Love in my opinion.[/color:c3emep9i]
