Jesus also told people to stop sinning and turn from evil. He also told His followers to tell the Good News that everyone can be saved and to do so means turning from their sin. This was His main message. What you mentioned is only a part of what He said.
But he also made it clear that it isn't up to us to judge another for their sins while we have sins of our own.

That's not quite accurate.

Are you going to trot out the idea the sins have to match thing?

The idea that you can call someone out for their sin if it's not the same sin as yours. It's a very literal interpretation of the speck and plank parable Jesus spoke of in the book of Matthew.

It is - again - besides the point, which is that blaming religion for everything is wrong.
Good thing nobody is doing that, then. Really, how many times are you going to repeat that bold-faced lie, hoping nobody would notice?

It isn't the root of all evil. But people who are smart enough are able to use it to justify anything to the people who follow them. Those people do truly believe and I don't think they're evil, just brainwashed. Most of the time the people preaching it are just as brainwashed, so it's basically a sad cycle of abuse.

I'm sure that religion could be done in such a way that it didn't lead to abuse, but that isn't happening anytime soon. Really the closest would be if Christians actually did what Jesus told them to do and help the poor and love everyone like they love themselves. But they rather try to control the lives of everyone around them. They're really lucky it's a myth, I doubt a single one would actually make it to Heaven. Heaven would only be Jesus, Old Yeller and Mr. Rogers.
Jesus also told people to stop sinning and turn from evil. He also told His followers to tell the Good News that everyone can be saved and to do so means turning from their sin. This was His main message. What you mentioned is only a part of what He said.
He also told his followers to sell all their possessions and give the money to the poor. Have you done that yet? Have you actually read the Bible or just had a preacher tell it to you? I've read it and I've read your posts over the years, the Biblical Jesus wouldn't be a fan of your actions. You're a sinner if you accept his teachings and have absolutely no right to say anything about the sins of anyone else.

He didn't say let he with a different sin cast the first stone.

I know a number of Non-Denom pastors who used to push that reasoning when referring to gay marriage, liberals, et al. It varies from sect to sect, and usually the most conservative ones are the ones pushing it the heaviest, at least in my neck of the woods.

Who are you to judge when you don't accept or understand it yourself?

3 quotes saying not to judge vs one possible in favor of judging. Add to those the "offer no resistance to the wicked" line and my argument looks stronger and stronger.

Maybe you should read the Bible if you want to go to Heaven.

"You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye."
"Do not judge by appearances, but judge with right judgment."
“If your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him.”

I still don't understand how you feel you can judge what or who a Christian is if you don't believe in it,
