The most pressing issue of "justice" is defining the term. Many use the word, but few have any idea what it means.

I think it's the middle of a Haiku. As in:

Love broadness the most
Pressing issues of justice
Are eclipsed by sloth

Maybe not

OK, I'll play seriously now. My vote for the most pressing issue of justice is freedom of conscience.

It implies personal responsibility, demands personal liberty, and is threatened everyplace where free people are willing to trade liberty for convenience and security, as well as where a belief or creed is physically persecuted. (Yes that is a long sentence)

And lest I give inappropriate comfort to our freedom party, freedom of conscience does not protect one from inconvenience for the sake of his beliefs. It does require some level of courage and personal responsibility.

A Blogger outage last night swallowed up a post I had carefully crafted. I was reluctant to say so because it just gives an occasion for Wes Kenney to stop by over here and diss me for using Blogger (again). I'll put up the real post tonight.

Brother Bart,

Only you can write a title with no article and thus far receive 7 comments. 5 of those comments are on the title. Goes to show that you may want to stick to just writing titles.:>)

Blessings,
Tim
