    Too many people have bought into the belief that it is wrong or undesirable to be judgmental. It has never made any sense to me to feel this way. As humans we have a responsibility to use our intelligence to think critically about everything and everyone. How else can we help make the world better?

    You're right. i didn't read the article, but the bible tells us specifically we are not to judge fellow believers regarding their BELIEF or personal relationship with God, but we ARE to judge non-believers, and help watch over and guide fellow church members.

    It takes JUDGMENT to do that.

    How do we establish a course of action without making a judgement?

    It does not mean we have to "judge" a person, but judging an action as right or wrong, is how life happens, is it not?


    I believe that those who do not judge are more likely to be led astray by lies and deception, and be considered useful idiots for evil things

    Judgmental is an adjective that can be used in a positive or negative sense dependent on application.

    Moral relativism is killing this country. It is essential that we make judgments about right and wrong and pass that along to our children. I have no qualms about pointing out goodness, inappropriateness, and downright evil in people. Unfortunately as a public school teacher, we are conditioned to accept that there are no "bad children" only bad behavior. Adults often describe violent acts in terms of "mistakes". Mugging an old man and putting him in the hospital is no mistake. It is a heinous crime. No PC BS for Chanel.
