  1. I can see things being used out of context if they’re missing key pieces of information, like “thou shalt not kill” being used to argue that animals shouldn’t be killed. But arguing something is taken out of context without knowing the context seems like a pretty clear indicator of just being contrarian.

  2. I think the case is often correctly stated for things being taken out of context. I just wanted to present the other side of it, which seems especially pertinent these days. If someone suggests something is being taken out of context, they ought to at least be able to provide the context, to back up their claim.
