Gordon Robertson Warns of Outlaw of Christmas

by matttbastard

The Nizkor Project:

The Slippery Slope is a fallacy in which a person asserts that some event must inevitably follow from another without any argument for the inevitability of the event in question. In most cases, there are a series of steps or gradations between one event and the one in question and no reason is given as to why the intervening steps or gradations will simply be bypassed. This “argument” has the following form:

  • Event X has occurred (or will or might occur).
  • Therefore event Y will inevitably happen.
  • This sort of “reasoning” is fallacious because there is no reason to believe that one event must inevitably follow from another without an argument for such a claim. This is especially clear in cases in which there is a significant number of steps or gradations between one event and another.

    1. Then of course there are those terrorist-fellow-travelers, the environmentalists, with their “global warming” hysteria, telling us that soon there won’t be any Christmas snow on the slippery slope, or incline.

      You can tell *they* hate Christmas too; and anyway, it’s a self-fulfilling professy, with all the hot air they emit.
