Judge not, that ye be not judged.Matthew 7:1-3 (KJV)
For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
To be sure, there is plenty of cruelty and violence, injustice, intolerance of others, and misogyny in the book Christians insist is "holy." Those who claim that this ancient set of writings provides a guide for moral living today clearly haven't read it for themselves. But it must be acknowledged that there are a least a few bits of decent advice buried within its pages like this one from the book of Matthew.
Perhaps things would be different now for Josh Duggar and Mike Huckabee if they had heeded this advice and not made their names on Christian extremism and spreading religiously-motivated hatred of LGBT persons.
