Political Correctness Fallacy
Political correctness is one of the many smokescreens that are used to cover the fact that the reasoning is based on one of the three fallacies of Agrippa's trilemma. Whenever a logical fallacy is committed, the fallacy has its roots in Agrippa's trilemma. All human thought (without Divine revelation) is based on one of three unhappy possibilities. These three possibilities are infinite regress, circular reasoning, or axiomatic thinking. This problem is known as Agrippa's trilemma. Some have claimed that only logic and math can be known without Divine revelation; however, that is not true. There is no reason to trust either logic or math without Divine revelation. Science is also limited to the pragmatic because of the weakness on human reasoning, which is known as Agrippa's trilemma.
The Political Correctness Fallacy occurs when political correctness is presented as proof for a conclusion. This would include trying to change the nature of a thing or situation by changing its name (euphemism) or thinking that a conclusion is true if it is political correct or false because it is not politically correct. There is a part of political correctness that is simply having good manners and not using words as weapons. It is not a fallacy to be considerate, kind, gentle, respectful, or civil. It is possible to tell the truth in love, with gentleness and respect.
Examples of the Political Correctness Fallacy
Gender-Neutral Bibles. Although the use of the word, "man," has changed in that it used to be a word that could mean mankind (men and women), and many references in KJV and some other translations used the word, "man," to translate words that would better have been translated as "people," "persons," of some other word that could mean either man or woman, some of these attempts to correct this have actually twisted the meaning of the original text.
Sandy: "It's a woman's right to choose that is at stake."
Roxanne: "Your sentence is missing it's object. You meant to say that it's a woman's right to choose to kill her child that is at stake, didn't you?"
Sandy: "We can't say that. It's politically incorrect. Someone may be offended."
Roxanne: "I don't mean to be offensive, but, if we are going to discuss, shouldn't we know what we are discussing?"
So many euphemisms are used to keep anyone form thinking. As the atrocities increase, more euphemisms are needed to cloak the wickedness. Better that we should note the seriousness of the sin so that we know that we must repent of it and receive forgiveness.
