I think before you can address any of these, you have to take a step back and think about what is meant by "judging." To me, it's not a matter of which of these scenarios is okay to judge or not okay, it's a matter of what it is you're judging.

I see no conflict in judging the action. What we're forbidden from doing is judging the person. I'm no longer a Christian, but I used to be one, and my understanding of my duty as a Christian was to try to help the person see the wrongness of their actions and show them the correct way. That is, to help them remove the speck from their eye.

What we're not allowed to do is to decide that the persons doing these objectionable actions are inherently bad people. That sort of judging is to be left to a higher power.

From a non-Christian perspective it's a bit simpler. I see no reason why we can't judge people according to various standards, as long as such judgment is limited in scope and rationally justified.
