Anybody remember Archbishop Rembert "Dream a Little Dream of Me" Weakland, the Apostle to Nantucket?

Generosity incarnate.
[The Golden Rule] can also be applied to being non-judgmental and not giving in to rash judgment. It is helpful in dealing with slander and the breaking of trust and promises. It is similar to the Native American adage not to judge another till you have walked a mile in his or her moccasins.
That's why his Iroquois captors chewed off the fingers of St. Isaac Jogues
Try as I might, I can't imagine what the Archbishop might be alluding to by his or her mention of rash judgment and slander. Ideas, anyone?
