(Upvoted so someone can explain it without Karma cost.)

(Upvoted so someone can explain it without Karma cost.)

Downvoted because feeding Will when he is speaking this kind of pretentious drivel is precisely the kind of thing that the cost is intended to penalize. It is an example of the system working as it should!

(Note that my own earlier reply would be penalized if I made it now and that too would be a desirable outcome. If I was confident that Will's claim about the Sermon on the Mount would be dismissed and downvoted as it has been then I would not have made a response.)

4MixedNuts7yWill is referring to Matthew 7:1-5. This claims that people underestimate their flaws relative to others'. Will claims that the obvious implication is that one must judge others more leniently to compensate, rather than refraining from judgement entirely as said two sentences earlier.
