I've been thinking....

I'm becoming tired of people who condemn judgement but then are incredibly judgemental themselves. They call you closed-minded if you are comfortable in your beliefs. They yell "Tolerance, tolerance, tolerance," but are themselves intolerant. They feel that they can know a person and limit that persons human worth by one statement that person gave. No matter what people say, you can never fully know another persons heart, and words spoken are not always a result of true feelings.
We, as human beings have no justifiable right to judge others. If a teenage girl becomes pregnant, she is automatically judged to be a slut. If a person says they are comfortable in their religious beliefs and have no desire to pursue other religions they are viewed as closed minded and unaccepting. But in reality is not the person making that judgement being closed-minded themselves?
I guess I'm just frustrated by people who are willing to dole out judgement without even knowing you. It's hurtful and unfair. The world is such a big place and there is so much that we can learn from it, yet people focus on these issues that have no meaning, causing them to miss the big picture.
So here it is, focus in on yourself. Are you being judgemental? Are you missing the big picture?
