Ever since the inconvenient truth of Oslo madman Anders Breivik's right-wing/Christian philosophy became clear, I've been waiting for American conservatives to roll out the "No True Scotsman" argument to defend themselves. Are you familiar with this strategy? It goes like this:
A: No Scotsman would eat a live puppy.
B: But I just saw Sean Connery eat one right over there! Look! He's eating one now!
A: No true Scotsman would eat a live puppy.
Keep your eyes open, because you'll be seeing this logical fallacy a lot. Want a good example? Here's Bill O'Reilly going on and on and on about how Breivik isn't really a Christian; he can't be, because No True Christian would do such a thing!
Besides, it's all a liberal media plot to make Christians look bad. Don't forget who the real victims are here!
UPDATE: it looks like Andrew Sullivan's readers also pegged O'Reilly's rant as a "No True Scotsman" construct.
