The last post and a short drive got me thinking.
In 1500 it was acceptable to judge people and burn them at the stake for their religious views. Why? Because a large chunk of society was on your side and conscious to the threat to their soul from religious heresy. Today 99.999% of westerners would be against burning people at the stake. Radical Muslims still judge you and kill you for blasphemy and public apostacy (notably when suŕrounded by other muslim radicals).
In 1900, no monotheist denomination, Catholic or Protestant, Mormon or JV sect would have supported a preacher, teacher or writer who was a former homosexual. Why, because sodomy was seen as disgusting by the vast majority of people in society. A sin that dare not speak its name.
In 2016 to 2019, Democratic voters see fit to judge Trump, Kavanaugh and fabricate false stories to remove them because 50% of US voters are on their side. If they were 10% they could not stand the backlash.
Most people today would still consider a former paedophile, who was contrite, to be a very poor choice for a school teacher or politician or philosopher. Because a majority of people still see pederasty and paedophilia as evil. Whereas they accept homosexuality and even transexualism.
I think this is what it comes down to. Judgmentalism is really the 'sin" of calling out as evil, or an occasion of sin, what is seen as 'normal' by a majority. This is why asking women to wear skirts and cover their heads at mass is labelled judgmental. By going against the majority, a person is necessarily implying that their judgment is better than the group conscensus and people feel they are being judged and that the person must perceive themselves as morally superior to be making that call that something is wrong.
Those who defend Voris right to come out, carry on preaching and treat it like water under the bridge, (many praised him for his bravery), and say it has no reflection on his credibility as a Catholic pundit are not really thinking, "there but for the grace of God go I", but rather, I accept homosexuality as just one of those things and if there are implications for Voris, then there must be implications for me and my sins. I don't want to face those, so I will defend Voris so I don't have to face them.
They don't say, there but for the grace of God go I, when it comes to pedophiles or nazis. You never hear people say that.
Sorry to use Michael Voris as an example, but he is an illustrative example, because he appointed himself and he is now sitting on panels with Bishop Schnider and Michael Matt and making all sorts of judgment and condemnations all the time about those to the left and the right of him.
