"A simple logical syllogism"

I simply love the way Catholic Answers describes the issue of whether or not Mary is the Mother of God. They state that it is an inescapably logical syllogism. They are, to be blunt, spot on.

A logical syllogism is a straightforward path of logic, to an inescapable conclusion.

My vehicle is a Chevrolet Corvette.
A Chevrolet Corvette is a car.
My vehicle is a car.
This is not tough to follow.

Yet, some fundamentalists fail miserably at this, when it comes to Mary.

Jesus is God.
Mary is the Mother of Jesus
Mary is not the Mother of God
This defies logic. Mary gave birth to a person. That person is God. Therefore, Mary is the Mother of God. It just comes down to a logical syllogism that fundamentalists cannot escape.
