Our society talks a lot about “social justice,” all the while continuously dishing out further injustice. This is not surprising, since Jesus, who taught and modeled perfect love and compassion, is mocked in Hollywood, despised in our universities, denied in Washington, and is cursed on the streets. Why? What injustice has He done? Why is He so despised?
