Luke 6:37 - "Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven."
John 8:7 - "When they continued to question Him, He straightened up and said to them, 'Let him who is without sin among you be the first to cast a stone at her.'"
Romans 2:1 - "You therefore have no excuse, you who pass judgment on another. For on whatever grounds you judge the other, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things."
I used to think that if everyone followed the Golden Rule (Do unto others as you would have them do unto you) the world would be a far better place. Now I think I want to add another rule based on these scriptures: Mind your own damn business! Don't believe in abortion? Don't have one. Think being gay is a sin? Don't be gay. It's none of your business what other people choose. Not everyone thinks the same as you do. You can choose whatever lifestyle you care to as long as it meets these two simple rules:
1. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
2. Mind your own business.
How hard can that be? The world would be so much nicer.
