Liberal logic is an argument by a liberal that is deceptively attractive to some, but is actually nonsensical. Here are some examples:

  1. belief that a correlation (e.g., between atheism and suicide) can be disproved by a poor counterexample (e.g., one atheist who remained sane)
  2. free speech for anything and everything ... except the conservative truth
  3. insisting that an atheistic culture cannot harm anyone, but also insisting that classroom prayer can cause harm
  4. requesting increased spending by government to reduce poverty, which actually poverty is increased by the dependency
  5. insisting on "tolerance" for anything that is anti-Christian, while censorship for anything is Christian
  6. insisting that teaching abstinence does not reduce premarital sex
  7. denying that widespread ownership of guns, largely defensive weapons, can reduce crime
  8. insisting that increasing taxes must increase government revenue, when often people just work less and revenues then decline
  9. Even though the Supreme Court overrules precedents every year by 5-4 votes, Roe v. Wade cannot be overruled, or can only be overruled if it is a unanimous 9-0 vote (this argument tries to make irreversible law out of the dicta in a weak majority opinion in Casey v. Planned Parenthood, even though the very creation of that "secret opinion" was procured by liberal deceit.)[1]
  10. The pronoun "he" has been used to include men and women for centuries, but liberals find that illogical today
