I had to write an essay for philosophy and part of it was to evaluate the argument from the Rev. Sheldon in which it was declared that this organization, http://www.traditionalvalues.org/ he being the chairman, speaks on behalf of 43,000 churches. Which I don’t buy. The opposing view was from “USA Today” and the subject was over the issue of marriage. Although, I needed to pick a position and it was to keep and support the sanctity of marriage to be between a man and woman, I had little choice but to rip apart the logic, and lack of reasoning, in my evaluation of the Rev. Sheldon’s argument in the process. His arguments were so weak so as to be of no help to me in suppoting my position. Considering the supposed credentials it raised suspicion in the representation of him for this argument. So, one of my issues was that it is not credible that this dude (Rev. Sheldon) speaks on behalf of 43,000 churches; heck, many if not a vast majority of pastors could have argued with better reasoning. I’m curious what others think of this claim that he is the voice of opposition on this magnitude. (43,000 churches!) I’m probably going to end up debating this in class and will want to chop off the legs out from under those who will attempt to stand on this guy majorly representing the opposing argument.
