    1. You judged me as being "insulting and offensive." You judged me as not "posting in good faith." My, my. Your faith IS good. Mine is not.
    2. Your pious friend judged everyone here, viz., "lack of intelligent members" and "lot of stupid."

    Your judgment and his are just fine, you think. You pretend.

    Do you not judge Adolf Hitler as more evil than Mother Teresa? Yes or no?
    Do you not judge ISIS terrorists who behead innocent people? Yes or no?
    How can you be so sanctimonious as to tell others not to judge when your very accusation judges them for discerning right from wrong, as if you are the sole arbiter?

    As to the often quoted parable of Jesus asking him who is without sin to "cast the first stone," you are missing a very great deal, and quite by design.
    First, she was to be stoned to death. He prevented her death. I have not advocated killing anyone, much less in a very horrible and painful fashion.
    Second, Jesus did indeed demonstrate judgment on many occasions, notably when He drove the moneychangers from the temple.

    Here is a hint for you: Swords are not used for plowing fields.

    "It is hard to imagine a more stupid or dangerous way of making decisions than putting those decisions in the hands of people who pay no price for being wrong." - Thomas Sowell

    "The most refreshing thing you find in government is competence, because it is so rare." - Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan

    Such people as "do not judge others" cannot possibly raise a child, and teach that child right from wrong, because to do so would be to "pass judgement" and you have stated that you do not judge other persons.

    Your claims at the bottom of every post you make state you judged others by resigning "due to lack of intelligent members." You judged them. "Lots of stupid round here." More judgement from you the consummately pious, Godly, holy, sanctimonious genius, who knows such things by virtue of your supreme intellect.
    you are not understanding what was said. I can make a judgement call, I can use discretion, I can discriminate... None of that is judging a person. I am saying I need to practice what I feel is good judgement and judgement is not judging a person.

    Relax, it is nothing personal - I am a VIP member, and it is my responsibility to try and stop people from being insulting to each other (causing off topic arguments, etc.) All I'm saying, is - it is possible to disagree with another member without being insulting and calling him names, and that is what is preferred on this board.
    Oh, I wish I were a glow worm,
    for a glow worm's never glum,
    'cause how can you be grumpy
    when the sun shines out your bum!

    Starman: "Do you not judge Adolf Hitler as more evil than Mother Teresa? Yes or no?"

    Hey, admit it. Mother Theresa, like Barack Obama, got much better press than Hitler. Two of those three were, are, disgusting so I'm suspicious of the third.

    Gays? I don't know why so many people hate gays. A friend I worked with went on a rant about gays one day. I said, "You worked with a couple of guys who are gay and got along fine with them."

    "Who? Who was it?"
    "I'm not telling you." For weeks, he wanted to know who they were. He never connected that with his assertion that he could always tell gays.

    People's private sex lives are none of my business unless I have some designs on them.

    You mean the OP isn't really there or William isn't really named William? From reading the OP I can easily believe the OP is either fifteen years old or a Democrat.
