    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.

    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.
