On a web forum, the comment "I can't but help thinking that the Black church is failing" was made.
That got me to "go off" and defend "The Black Church". Here is how I responded:
This is what I am going to do:
I'm going to state a moral truth.
I'm going to state a statistical truth.
I'm going to state a social fact.
I'm going to use an associative relationship between the moral truth and the statistical truth to make a corollary.
I'm going to use the corollary and the social fact to provide a hypothesis.
I am going to ask if the hypothesis is valid.
Moral truth: Those who engage in premarital sex are committing a sin.
Statistical truth: 65-70% of the white population has engaged in premarital sex.
Social fact: Sunday is the "most segregated day" in the U.S. Most of the white population goes to a "white church".
Corollary: If engaging in premarital sex is a sin, then 65-70% of the white population are sinners, then most of the white population are sinners.
Hypothesis: If most of the white population attends a white church, yet most of the white population engages in premarital sex, then the white church is failing the white population.
True or false?
