“Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 2 For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."

i get the point you are getting at with the judgement topic, but Jesus says:
Matthew 7 New International Version (NIV)
7 “Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 2 For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
calling someone out for committing murder and calling someone out for cheating on their spouse are not exactly the same thing... granted the murderer is "judged" but they are not "judged" on a level of saying you are a bad person and are going to hell only that they are guilty of committing the crime. The laws of man and God are two separate things. In gods eyes talking back to your parents is just as bad as murder, and in the laws of man those are at two opposite ends of the spectrum. You can be "judged" and convicted of murder but you can still repent of that sin and be good with God but you must still face the punishment of societies laws. So I think the different types of "judging" is the real thing here. As for the cheating spouse, is what they did wrong? yes in my opinion, but should i label them a bad person? no, because that is not my place to, their "sins" are between themselves and God. This conversation could go very deep if we wanted it to.
Secondly, when ending a prayer with "Amen"; the prayeree (lol) is tributing their prayer to Amen-Ra the much more ancient deity.

In one kind of prayer at public events, the person praying is understood to be acting as spokesman for the whole group in addressing God, in which case it would not count as "self-advertising". For example, that's what's happening in corporate prayer at a church service or meeting.
Incidentally, your last paragraph is in bold because you put a [ b ] at the end of v13. The software understands that as an instruction to bold, which is why it doesn't show on screen.
What do you mean stunned by it?
Indiana's Republican leaders said they were shocked, confused and completely caught off-guard by the backlash to their new "religious freedom" law, telling reporters Monday that they had not expected criticism calling the measure anti-gay.
Judge not, that ye be not judged.
Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:
Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things.
But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.
There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?
Judge everything and everyone:
Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment: thou shalt not respect the person of the poor, nor honour the person of the mighty: [but] in righteousness shalt thou judge thy neighbour.
Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
1 Corinthians 2:15
But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
1 Corinthians 5:12-13
For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?
But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.
1 Corinthians 6:2-3
Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?
