Who are you to judge?…

When someone says, “Who are you to judge?” the proper response is, “Since we are both rational people, who are aware of certain fundamental principles of logical and moral reasoning, we are both qualified to judge. In fact, I’m simply using the same standard you are using to judge me. All of us must make moral judgments. Laws couldn’t be made if we didn’t make judgments. And if we never judged between behaviors that are good and those that are evil, then we would have destroyed ourselves years ago.”

Norman Geisler and Frank Turek, from Legislating Morality, p. 208
