Mercy is tremendously more important than justice. We all need mercy!

If our society was more merciful as a whole, would we have such a need for justice?

I'm having a hard time with the mercy answer being red - not sure why

It was an intentional choice.
Can you try to put your feeling into words? I am honestly interested to read why you feel that way and what you think about too.

Well - I just don't see a lot if mercy in the actions of those in charge of the "red" agenda/message. Even when they were writing their "signature" legislation (or the closest I can come up with) of the last few years, immigration reform there

Path to citizenship was so difficult and expensive it was unlikely to lead to citizenship for very many people - it was unmerciful

Out of justice comes the ability to show mercy and allow for someone to experience mercy. But simply saying I show mercy does not make any action to which the mercy is shown allowable, only forgivable. Justice comes first then followed is mercy.

Justice. Criminals don't have mercy for those they hurt.

Justice. Justice is required of the law, but mercy is not and should only be meted-out when doing so is deserved and does not rob justice.

Without justice...there can be no mercy.
