It is with a heavy heart and sad droopy eyes that I write this concerned letter to my Presbyterian brothers. A recent blog post called my attention to yet another former Presbyterian minister who has splish-splashed his way across the Tiber and gone papist. Jeffrey Steele, formerly a minister of the Presbyterian Church of America, announced this past summer on his blog his decision to kiss the Pope and don the sacral skivvies of Rome. After having given this development a bit of thought, I have come to the conclusion that the Presbyterians of America need a stern warning. Follow for a moment my super tight reasoning and use of an anciently acclaimed form of argumentation. Jeffrey Steele used to be Presbyterian. Now he is a papist. Clearly the cause must have been the Presbyterianism. Post hoc, ergo propter hoc. His preceding ecclesiastical association
Or maybe there is something wrong with the argument.
