Pat Robertson Comment Over The Top

Robertson is over the top again.

While I agree that radical Islam isn’t a peaceful religion and is indeed “satanic”, it does not mean all of Islam is not a religion of peace or “satanic.”

Robertson makes a gross over generalization, which is a logical fallacy.

And like all logical fallacies, it is an inherently dishonest argument.
