I guess my other problem with that is, what happened to forgiveness, and not judging? I thought that was supposed to be left up to their god.

We seem to have people who think morality is objective! Um, no.

Or that atheist = amoral. No. *sigh* There's a lot of ignorance out there.
Along the same vein, everyone made much of the Amish community who forgave the guy who murdered 5 girls. They can forgive that and not one of their own children who leaves the community because they want a different life? Shunned for life? Great.
