Text message from a friend: Have you seen "The True Freethinker" on the web? Love to engage that guy.
Me: I have not seen that, but it already reminds me of a "true Scotsman". Google "no true Scotsman".
Friend: The True Freethinker is some asshole Theist. He sucks.
Me: When you look up "no true Scotsman" you'll see that anyone who claims to be the "true" anything, is an asshole.
I knew it! I’m surrounded by Assholes.
