That's modernity for you. Its origins lie in the 17th-18th century Enlightenment. Ever since, we have basically been led by morally neutral principles:

1)equality
2)liberty
3)tolerance

These principles are not virtues. IOW, they say nothing about what we ought to do. A follower of these principles wouldn't know what he was committing his life to. He would only believe that everyone should have equal access to the "good life." But he would have no clear guide on what a "good" life is.

In a nutshell, these principles only tell us to let others do what they want to do. Hence, "we shouldn't judge people."

BTW what is now called "post-modernity" is bullshit. The real post-modernity will be defined by a challenge to Enlightenment principles.

"Judge not, that ye be not judged" is in the Bible.

Although if you talk without ever judging anybody there would seem not to be much left to talk about! But as a general guide it seems to have merit or you'd just set yourself up for people to criticise you back which would probably make you feel worse.

Brazor, I think you're my new favorite poster. I'm hopeful about the end of post-modernism though. They've run out of things to deconstruct. I expect a new wave of nationalism to come about in the next couple centuries. So who stands in opposition to these non-virtues? A reactionary. This has been very eye opening:
