Judging Others

From Matthew 7:
Jesus said, “Do not judge, so that you may not be judged. For with the judgment you make you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get. Why do you see the speck in your neighbor’s eye, but do not notice the log in your own eye? Or how can you say to your neighbor, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ while the log is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your neighbor’s eye.
In light of the quick judgment that people continually have of others' religion when terrible things happen, I think the statement from Jesus should give us pause before we say anything.

I also think the cartoon below says it all:
