I appreciate the wise words from Raymond Mayo clarifying the distinction between “unequal” and “inequity.” Man has always had to wrestle with similar paradoxes like right and wrong and fair and unfair.

Through time, people have had to deal with various challenges where people have had to make choices and realize the consequences of their choices. Governments can’t always make things right or fair or even equitable. Government's business is to issue and enforce laws.

I taught my children that life isn’t fair. Fairness rests only with God. But I helped them to grow and learn from their life experiences. We, the people, are better when we rely on divine influences for our choices.
