Delaney is a devout Catholic who says his faith has influenced his “social justice orientation” “to some extent.”

To understand Better, I will divide Social Justice orientation into three parts -:

Distributive Justice – Each and every person of a society should be treated equally. suppose there are two people working in the same company at the same position for some extra days but one is getting a bonus and the other one is ignored by higher authority. So the company should treat each and every person to follow distributive justice.

Procedural Justice – Understand and listen to each person then make a fair decision . Imagine if the government has ordered that some houses of xyz society will be demolished to make a state highway. Here the first priority of the government should be to have a conversation with the households about the Highway project and understand their point of view also. This action will be a perfect example of procedural justice .

Somehow his thinking was different but not wrong !
