Be Openminded Both Ways

I was at the Hillel today, and I noticed a fascinating thing. There was a whole debate going on about people who are really religious and how they shouldn't consider the things that they do the only way and that they shouldn't judge the people who aren't doing them. (Who says they are? Why is everyone convinced that Charedim are judging? I consider myself Charedi, and I don't judge...I sure hope I don't, anyway..) Just after that comment was made, one of the guys said that he studied at Ohr Sameach in Monsey.

And the response from one of the people there was "Monsey? Ew..."

When asked why, she said "but it's soooo religious...why would you want to go there?"

So who's being judgemental again?
