May Justice Be Swift


"Lex inusta lex non est lex."

St. Augustine.

An unjust law is no law at all.

"1 Woe to those who decree iniquitous decrees,

    and the writers who keep writing oppression,

2 to turn aside the needy from justice

    and to rob the poor of my people of their right,

that widows may be their spoil,

    and that they may make the fatherless their prey!"

Isaiah 10:1-2


A law that contradicts God's law is an unjust law. Thankfully, sometimes, though the Church itself fails to recognise this, in the common grace of God our law system, which finds it origins in biblical revelation, does recognise this.

May justice be swift. The politicians who enacted these unjust polices stole income, livelihoods, dignity and reputations from good Australians. May those who were harmed by these concepts be compensated generously, and may those who enforced these immoral and unlawful decrees be lawfully sanctioned so that future politicians and leaders do not try to do the same.
