I am going to -assume- that my previous post got deleted because it wasn't a question, well. Now it is.
How can anyone judge another based on differences in belief (social, religious, political, or anything else), especially when they are also insulting the people they are judging, and yet still call themselves a Christian? Especially when you consider this?:
Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment that you pronounce you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, "Let me take the speck out of your eye," when there is the log 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 brother's eye.
Christianity. Matthew 7.1-5

to answer you original question:not really. Here is an piece from a website(too lazy to type today)
Yes, we do have the right and the authority to judge the behavior of others as long as we honor and obey His Word doing it. That Jesus is the only one who can judge is speaking to judging whether someone is or is not saved. Neither you nor I nor anyone else who ever draws a breath (except Jesus) has the authority to say whether another has or has not been saved. Only Jesus can make that judgment since only He can give Salvation. Nor may we who discern poor behavioral based on His Word think of ourselves as "better than" the one whose behavior we judge as poor.
