Letter From Birmingham Jail

Letter from Birmingham Jail

Why does king use the word "justice" in the second sentence of paragraph 34? How might this word choice affect king's audience's understanding of his purpose?

I've counted the text's paragraphs twice, and the paragraph below is Paragraph 34. The word justice is not used in this paragraph. Please cut and paste the appropriate text in the box below.

But despite these notable exceptions, I must honestly reiterate that I have been disappointed with the church. I do not say this as one of those negative .critics who can always find. something wrong with the church. I say this as a minister of the gospel, who loves the church; who was nurtured in its bosom; who has been sustained by its spiritual blessings and who will remain true to it as long as the cord of Rio shall lengthen.
