Matthew 7:1-5.

I have had several "encounters" with wingnuts, and the winning argument begins with this:
"That is not a Christian thing to do. What did Jesus teach about this?".
Followed with, "That is not what Jesus taught and you know it. Go read your Bible."
Followed with, "You know and refuse to do what Jesus taught, so you reject Jesus."
If they try to attack you, the response is, "Those are the Words of Jesus right there in the Bible. You are mad at me because I show them to you?"

Also, try Matthew 5 for more quotes, but here is my standard spiel:

Why you refuse to do what your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ told you to do? If you refuse and ignore His Holy words, then your refuse and ignore Jesus. There is no parsing of His words- they are absolute and the words of Salvation.

I refer you to Matthew 7, vs 1-5, quoted here from the King James Bible:

1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.

2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?

5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.
