Judging, Discerning...Let's worry about our own actions please  
Those who have been following my conservative/liberal dialogue ponderings may be interested in the following:

Apparently conservative Christians are tired of having liberals quote the "Judge not as ye be judged" quote and other such things (he who is without sin may cast the first stone comes to mind), so Karen at Some Have Hats wrote about why she needs to discern (not judge) Evil so she can avoid becoming a "bad fish" who gets cast out of God's net into Hell. I thought it was enough to obey the Pope and the Bible, go to Church, confess your sins, and take communion, according to her faith. But I confess I don't know a lot about Catholicism. It's been a long time since I studied it. (33 years, actually.)

I think we'd be less likely to throw the nonjudgmental quotes back at them if they were less inclined to preach the rules of their religion to those of us who are not members. If I am going to hell, leave me to my handbasket please! I promise not to grab you as I'm cast from the net.

I'm tired and have a headache so I guess I'm a bit more snarky than normal tonight. Sorry!
