When your value system comes under attack, any defense of them, however hypocritical to said values, is not only appropriate but necessary. Thus, Christians are under no obligation to argue with charity, and secular progressives can keep their skepticism and tolerance at the door. To do otherwise is to allow the wrong people to win.
I recently finished the book “My Fight is Your Fight” by Ronda Rousey. Rousey just claimed the title of the UFC world champion. She is an awesome fighter, and if you have seen any of fights you would agree. Her book takes you through her whole life and how she literally when from rags to riches.
