I am doing my final on catholic church response to child sexual abuse is inadequate. my question is I am having trouble finding out what is bias, identify any rhetorical devices, moral reasoning, identify the premises and the argument made my the author.
Also from wikipedia-
In rhetoric, a rhetorical device or resource of language is a technique that an author or speaker uses to convey to the listener or reader a meaning with the goal of persuading him or her towards considering a topic from a different perspective. While rhetorical devices may be used to evoke an emotional response in the audience, there are other reasons to use them. The goal of rhetoric is to persuade towards a particular frame of view or a particular course of action, so appropriate rhetorical devices are used to construct sentences designed both to make the audience receptive through emotional changes and to provide a rational argument for the frame of view or course of action.
Two rhetorical devices are irony and metaphor.
