In our great homeland there is justice for all unless…. You finish the sentence. The Metro Atlanta Task Force for the Homeless, Inc. learned on January 23, 2014, that its lawsuit against conspirators Central Atlanta Progress (CAP), Atlanta Downtown Improvement District (ADID) and developer Emanuel (God with us) Fialkow set for February 17 has been postponed, indefinitely. No reason was given for the postponement. It is not known who needs more time.
Charles Dickens’ knowledge of the system of law gives “a certain slant of light” in the direction of understanding such mischief. At age 32 Dickens wrote to a friend, “It is better to suffer a great wrong than to have recourse to the much greater wrong of the law.” Dickens slams the door on any hope of justice in the law.
Father Daniel Berrigan opens that door but only slightly. On page 12 of his NO GOD BUT ONE, he writes, “The God of the oppressed is nearly in eclipse in favor of a god of the oppressor. All however is not lost. Indeed, the worst times beget breakthrough.”
Our hope must be in the Rock of Ages and not in any system locked into the principalities and powers.
