Tu quoque fallacy

This argument is the tu quoque, the logical fallacy that there must be something wrong with your argument because you don't act consistently. While parts of the author's statements may have validity, none take away from the fact that progressives who conduct same sex weddings, or non celibate homosexuals in the United Methodist Church are acting without integrity and contrary to the Bible and the Book of Discipline. Saying "physician, heal thyself" does not mean the patient isn't still sick. In Christ, the enemy hates clarity

Notable Quotes

   "... Every modern institution faces crises in this complex, chaotic century. What differentiates great organizations is whether and how they react, specifically their ability to galvanize a robust, united response to their challenges. Faced with urgent crises, healthy organizations rally together to save the institution they love. Unhealthy organizations play the blame game."

– Chris Lowney, writing in "Is the Catholic Church a Capsizing Ship?" for Religion News Service.

“Religion is a very complex subject, spanning the whole spectrum of human behavior. It can be an ethical, exalted expression, but religion can also be a mind-control technique to subjugate the masses.”

– Religion scholar Robert Forte, commenting in "How San Francisco's Summer of Love Sparked Today's Religious Movements" by Don Lattin for Religion News Service.
