Evil and Christian Arrogance

Many Christians are fond of claiming that no human can truly know the mind of their god and that to say otherwise is arrogant. They like to say this when confronted with conflicts between science and superstition. If we assume for a second that they are correct in this assertion, how can they label certain people as evil (e.g., homosexuals, atheists, people from all other religions, etc.)? Isn't judging good and evil supposed to be the domain of their god? It strikes me as more than a bit hypocritical to insist that they know what their god wants while simultaneously protesting that claiming to know what their god wants is arrogant.
