Leftist Logic

DC Police Chief who approves almost no concealed carry permits wants armed citizens to take action
Like vigilantes, maybe?
Where Is Liberal Rage Over Mass Shooting In New Orleans?
Well, it's just blacks shooting (innocent, mostly) blacks, 17 in fact. Those black lives don't matter, of course; blacks can shoot whoever they want. It's whites that must be kept in line. Nothing racist or newsworthy here, move along now.
Women's group can't accept that 'rape culture' just might not be a thing
When you're committed to perpetuating the myth of a rampant "rape culture" on college campuses, evidence to the contrary becomes baffling.

And so it goes for the American Association of University Women, which analyzed 2014 reporting data from colleges and universities across the country and found that 91 percent of schools had no reported incidents of rape. Most people would see that number and cheer. Hooray! College women aren't being raped in the U.S. at rates on par with the Congo!

But not the AAUW. Accompanying that percentage on a chart on its website are the words: "What's wrong with this picture?"

"When campuses report zero incidents of rape, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking, it simply does not square with research, campus climate surveys, and widespread experiences reported by students," the AAUW wrote.

Let's stop right there. Those "campus climate surveys" are the "research" they're talking about, unless they're referring to David Lisak's "studies," which have been thoroughly debunked this year, as have those [rape] climate surveys.

The biggest problem with the surveys is that they broadly define sexual assault to include pretty much every human interaction. And it's not actually the students participating who say they are victims of sexual assault; often, it's the researchers conducting the surveys — researchers who have a stake in proving "rape culture" exists and that women are oppressed.
Every report that is non-congruent with the narrative is just... wrong.

There's a tactic used by Atheists to show Jesus approved of slavery, it's used by virtually every Atheist site. They usually ask "where did Jesus condemn slavery?"

Does this tactic qualify as a guilt by association fallacy. If someone does not explicitly condemn an act then such a person is equal to any group which engages in the act.

"No known position" does not indicate support.

“Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.”
John 21:25

First, his position is not known.

Second, there are many political issues which Jesus did not address; in fact, there are probably none. In the written histories (Gospels) Jesus did not advocate for a great many things, say public health systems, nor revolution against “the Man”, nor a minimum wage, etc. He did not even advocate for democracy, life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness, nor fraternite', egalite' et liberte'. That is not what Jesus was all about. His message was intensely personal, not political systems, radical overthrow (progressivism), nor social policy.

I think it qualifies as a Category Error.

The expectation of finding X by searching Y is always a logic failure. Atheists already approve of the use of Category Error when they espouse Philosophical Materialism.

Well put. Thanks Stan

Hello everyone!!

This is sadly what happens, when these sorts of intellectually-lacking atheists, believe that they had "touched the golden".

Quite cognitive-dissonant.

Couldn't just they leave what they hate, lonely lone?

Isn't is just enough the forced dumb-down our society is coming into?

More useless papers and less merit, and that results in the spawning of intellectually-lacking atheists.

Kind Regards.
