The False Argument of Saying I Am Homophobic if I Disagree with Same Gender Marriages

Have you ever had some one call you ‘homophobic’ merely because you believe marriage should only be between a man and a woman ?

If you have then you have experienced what the gay agenda uses to make you appear as a hateful person. It is a tactic that is used over and over again by the proponents of what is called ‘gay rights.’ We will talk about ‘gay rights’ at another time but basically what you need to know about ‘gay rights’ is that no matter how a person identifies themselves they have the same rights as you and me. No need for a special category of rights.

So what do I mean when I say this is a false argument?

Well, you could also call it a false premise.  A false premise is an incorrect assumption that forms the basis of an argument. Since the assumption is not correct, the conclusion  drawn is usually an error.

We need to remember though that the logical validity of an argument is based on a function of its internal consistency rather than on the truth value of its premises. Basically the person making this argument believes in gay marriage and anyone who does not must be a hateful person. Their internal beliefs override what is true.

Lets look at this with a not so hot topic. Lets use the example which involves an obvious false premise. You walk outside and you see the street is wet. Your false premise is “if the street is wet it must have rained recently.” The premise is that the streets are wet. The assumption is therefore is has rained recently.

This argument is basically, logically a valid one, but quite demonstrably wrong, because its first premise is false. Someone could have hosed down the streets, or perhaps a local river flooded, etc . . . A simple logical analysis will not reveal the false argument since that analysis must accept the truth of the argument’s premises.

This is why an argument based on false premises can be much more difficult to refute, or even discuss, than one featuring a normal logical error, as the truth of its premises must be established to the satisfaction of all parties.

The following joke from Plato and a Platypus Walk Into a Bar illustrates the point that a false premise or assumption can also be a premise that is poorly or incompletely defined so as to make the conclusion questionable.

“An old cowboy goes into a bar and orders a drink. As he sits there sipping his whiskey, a young lady sits down next to him. … She says, ‘I’m a lesbian. I spend my whole day thinking about women. …’ A little while later, a couple sits down next to the old cowboy and asks him, ‘Are you a real cowboy?’ He replies, ‘I always thought I was, but I just found out I’m a lesbian'”.

The mistake the cowboy makes is that he assumes that the definition of a lesbian is somebody who spends the “whole day thinking about women.” The reason the joke works is because in a certain way that definition could apply to lesbians, but it fails to address the point that a lesbian is a homosexual female. The cowboy is not homosexual and female, therefore he is not a lesbian.

Do you now see why it is a false assumption to say I am homophobic because I do not believe marriage should be allow between two people of the same gender. I do not hate those who have same gender attractions. And more closely to the definition of homophobic, I am not fearful of those who identify as gay or lesbian. Heck I myself identified as a lesbian for over 20 years.

Did the Boy Scouts Make the Right Decision?

Boy-Scouts-Pledge

For me, the main thing to ponder upon is that these young boy scouts are still young and still impressionable . . .

Right now, the culture they are in, basically, the world, is telling them that if you have same gender attractions you must be gay . . .

But, we know this is not true, we know that young boys, will not mature until about age 25, right now the world is telling them they are gay because of their un-chosen attractions so they think they must be . . .

so, part of me sees the move as a positive one for the boys who want to be scouts who identify as gay . . . again, they probably have not acted out on the attractions, they just are identifying themselves as gay because that is what the culture is telling them . . . or if they have acted it out there is still hope they will not believe the lies that they are born gay . . .

so, if they get in with some strong men, the boy scout leaders, who are not gay, who are comfortable in their own skin, and their emotional needs are met by these leaders, basically I see gay identifying youth coming out with strong male identifies and no longer attracted to the same gender any longer . . .

yes, they may have caved in . . . or perhaps they are thinking they can make a difference and actually meet the emotional needs of these gay identifying youth . . . thus turning them back to God’s intended design

the reason these young boys are identifying as gay is because they do have same gender attractions . . . and the culture tells them they are gay . . . but the real reason they have the attractions is because somewhere in their childhood their same gender parent did not meet an emotional need . . . now this emotional need that was not meet is not the same gender parent’s fault necessarily . . . it may be a matter of the child’s perception of it not being met . . . or it could have been something out of the hands of a predator . . .

I see this whole thing as we see the story of Joseph being sold into slavery by his 11 brothers in the book of Genesis, in the Bible. What Joseph’s brothers intended for evil, God turned it around and used it for good, God used Joseph to save God’s people . . .

What gay activists intend for evil, a furtherance of their agenda, God can indeed turn around and use to bring these young boys back in line with God’s intended design.
