It’s an unpleasantly conducted debate and it epitomizes many of the problems of television debates. But there are attempts to use logical structures.
1. Consider Dan Savage’s very first response to the Anderson Cooper’s question (response starts at (1:15-2:05). Answer the following questions:
a. Does Dan Savage use deductive reasoning?
b. Does Dan Savage use inductive reasoning?
c. Does Dan Savage use abductive reasoning?
d. Are the types of reasoning that Dan Savage uses also enthymematic?
2. Consider the arguments between Tony Perkins and Dan Savage on the issue of minority rights and the courts (3:07-5:36). In that span, Dan Savage equates the right to same-sex marriage to the right or interracial couples to get married. Tony Perkins indicates it’s a red herring (a logical fallacy that uses irrelevant information to distract from the case). Consider their arguments and answer the following using material from the class?
a. Is Dan Savage’s analogy literal or figurative?
b. Is Dan Savage’s analogy a red herring as Tony Perkin’s claims?

3. Consider the overall quality of reasoning in the debate.
a. Choose to support one of the following statements.
