We cannot judge the state of the soul of a person, but we can judge their actions as good or as evil.
We can judge any writings or statements as well, by comparing these with the teachings of the Church and with natural law.
This ability of judgment constitutes part of the virtue of prudence and the gift of knowledge.
What we cannot judge are people's motivations or intentions, unless they speak or write of those.
As awful as the situation is from Rome, we cannot judge interior motives. But, we can and must judge actions.
Judgment is part of the gift from God which is our rational ability. We can think, we can reflect.
We can objectively judge sin.
We cannot judge subjective motives. which is what too many people in the traditional press are doing.
Do you think you lack discernment?
