The "Who Am I to Judge" Gospel

"If you don’t sermonize about what people are doing in the dark on Saturday night, then maybe they will feel more welcome at Sunday Mass... 

"...Run a soup kitchen, collect blankets for the homeless, preach about generosity, and don’t give people a hard time about forbidden private acts that bring them pleasure...

"...The idea emerges from time to time in corners of the Catholic world: greed and economic exploitation are exceptional crimes, while lustful crimes do less harm and ought not to be subject to righteous indignation."

Read the entire article here.

Let me give just one example of every priests' judging responsibility.

The Code of Canon Law requires every minister of Holy Communion to judge and discriminate in the distribution of Holy Communion; he must refuse communion to those who are obviously in unrepented mortal sin.

Can. 915 Those upon whom the penalty of excommunication or interdict has been imposed or declared, and others who obstinately persist in manifest grave sin, are not to be admitted to holy communion.
