Sounds pretty liberal to me.
Liberals are nonjudgmental? And I suppose you think they are that way based on a moral conviction?
Your perception about Jesus being liberal because He didn't judge people is false. Jesus espoused a very conservative view of how to live a life pleasing to God. At the same time He was extremely critical about hypocrites.
Either way, one cannot have Jesus without the entire council of God at the same time. The Word of God is absolutely clear about right and wrong, and Jesus lived a life that reflected its moral truth. Jesus isn't an excuse for sin. Political expediency notwithstanding.

"Everyone thinks they're a God" Really?
Many think they should take their spirituality, and hence their lives into their own hands. This is not the same as proclaiming oneself a god.
Or are you just trolling?
