No, It’s Not ‘Always’ Wrong to Discriminate

We’re seeing a radical push by so-called Progressives to redefine human nature by an appeal to the God who created the natural world and all things in it. You may have seen this meme:

When did using your religious beliefs to discriminate against others become a Christian value? Choose love.

This is an example of the loaded question fallacy, “When did you stopped beating your wife?” The question assumes something that is not in factual evidence. The person being asked the question is assumed to be guilty about something that he did not do.

“Whether the respondent answers yes or no, he will admit to having a wife and having beaten her at some time in the past. Thus, these facts are presupposed by the question, and in this case an entrapment, because it narrows the respondent to a single answer, and the fallacy of many questions has been committed.”

What’s being presupposed by the authors of the meme is that to oppose same-sex sexuality is to be involved in “discrimination” and a lack of love. Because of the rainbow background of the meme, the loaded question is about same-sex sexuality.

Choose-love

 

What’s missing in the meme is a definition of “discriminate.”
