It seems to me that if they do NOT agree with you, they HAD been "open" minded, but now that they have decided to disagree with you they are now "close-minded"?

Liberals...can you explain or defend this saying? Or should this saying be added to the list of sayings that need to die?

I calculated the first statement to be logically contingent, meaning the statement is neither true nor false under all instances.

Any philosophy or math majors here can help me verify this? It's been about a decade since I had logic and discrete mathematics.
