"Judge not lest ye be judged"

A thought-provoking article about Christians' fearing being "judgmental":

Society only tolerates sexual sins and sins against life. And that tolerance is strictly enforced. People trudge out the "do not judge" phrase and use it like a club to silence anyone who might speak against such license. Society also rewards anyone who abides by its rules and strikes the word "sin" from his or her vocabulary...We even go so far as to give Jesus a makeover.
