When We Assume We Make...
http://www.patheos.com/blogs/thegodarticle/2016/03/when-you-assume-you-make/

Possibly the kind of assuming that bothers me the most is “normalizing.” It’s when we think this way: I am [insert category of people here] and I believe [insert belief here], therefore all [insert category of people] believe [insert belief]. 


Ex.: I am a Christian and I believe Donald Trump will suffer in the fiery pits of hell because he has small hands and wears what seems to be an endangered species on his head, therefore all Christians believe Donald Trump will suffer in the fiery pits of hell because he has small hands and wears what seems to be an endangered species on his head.


We can all see how absolutely ridiculous that is. (I mean, c’mon, frighteningly, that’s his real hair!).


It really is just bad logic. Yet, we do it all the time.
