It's the same in the military. The actions of one affects the entire platoon, unit, etc... Those actions of the few directly speak to the whole.
And so it is with any organization, company, government and so forth.
It's often said right here on this thread by Christians that this is a Christian country. It's said when someone not Christian states Christianity is in decline that we're ridiculous, and that Christianity grows. It's said that no matter the belief set, sect denomination or way of belief, Christianity is united.
They'll point to the positive actions of one Christian or a few, and say something similar to:
"See?.. that is a Christian, look at what Christians do, that is Christianity!"
Until it comes time to accept that some members of Christianity do things or exhibit behavior that Christianity should rightly be ashamed of, and exhibits some very bad effects that Christianity does produce, then it'll be said:
"OH!.. NO!... Those are individuals, when they do that, it's the individual doing that, and that group isn't representative of all Christians!"
And that brings me back to a often mentioned observation I point out...
That's the "beauty" of the "No True Christian™" fallacy.
Only people who do nothing wrong at all are called Christian — by Christians — and those who do wrong are not Christian, no matter if the person who does something illegal, wrong or less than exemplary says they are a Christian.
It's a disingenuous claim by "Christians" who utilize the fallacy(obviously), and very convenient. When a Christian does something that casts a bad light on Christianity, they just say those people who presented a negative view of Christianity aren't real Christians and the problem is solved, no?
It's good people are standing up and pointing out these flaws in Christianity and exposing that type of "No True Christian™" thinking as disingenuous and fallacious.
The - "No True Christian™" - fallacy points to there being far less Christians in the nation than statistics say there are, meaning the US isn't a "Christian Country", if we allow Christians to make the "No true Christian", assertion, nor has it ever been. <(chuckle)>
We know that is protested, however, by all Christians, true Christians or not, and suddenly every Christian a Christian could get to say they are a Christian would indeed be a Christian...~/.
This is the rule: The only "Real Christian™" is the one you happen to be talking to at the moment, and they'll tell you who isn't, a "Real Christian™".
