Chris Thurman: Yes, evangelicals, it is foolish to support Trump

"...why is Brown talking about me given that my op-ed was about evangelicals who foolishly support Trump in spite of the fact that he is a deeply mentally and morally disturbed person?

“‘Bulverism’; that is, finding in someone’s social location or other interests a hidden motivation that supposedly invalidates all their reasoning.”

"Bulverism, in all my experience, is never satisfied. Those who resort to it have never given me any evidence that they think their opponents can be won over, only derided, defeated, and destroyed. In fact, resorting to Bulverism is itself a declaration that efforts at persuasion have been judged useless or unnecessary. Rhetorical bludgeoning is the only tool left." - Mark Ward: Answering Moe the Internet Bully
