21. Atheists don't subscribe to a doctrine that says, "judge not lest you be judged".

Pointing out someone's hypocrisy for not following their own doctrine does not create an obligation on the part of the person pointing out that hypocrisy to follow that doctrine.

I'll gladly admit that I judge other people. Everyone (with possibly some rare exceptions) judges other people, at least on some issues some of the time. The main difference is that a lot of people are in denial about the judging they do, or they try to foist their own judgmental attitudes off on their gods, so that when they judge others they can claim to be merely passing on their god's judgment.
