Logical fallacy.

  • A. Christians have been too closely aligned with the Republican Party.
  • B. The Republican Party does not always espouse or fight for Christian ideas.
  • C. Christians should align themselves with the Democratic Party.

Even if you grant A and B, C is a non sequitur.

Especially when the DNC’s platform states:

Because we believe in the privacy and equality of women, we stand proudly for a woman’s right to choose [to kill her unborn child], consistent with Roe v. Wade, and regardless of her ability to pay [someone to kill her unborn child]. We stand firmly against Republican efforts to undermine that right [to kill one’s unborn child].

  1. I absolutely agree. This is why Christians must put the authority of scripture above political party and proclaim to all parties the word of God. We must tell the republicans and democrats that they will not win our vote simply by being against abortion. The sad thing about voting from a scriptural perspective is that you’re always trading an evil for a lesser one. We will never have a perfect ruler until our Lord comes back.

  2. right. another all too often occuring logical fallacy:

    A. I am a Christian.
    B. The Republican party most closely aligns with Christian worldview on morality (abortion, marraige, etc.).
    C. I, Christian, should/will always support and agree with the Republican Party’s position on all issues.

    Granting A and B, C does not have to be the case. And I’m tired of people assuming so.
