There are a lot of people that say a lot of very controversial things, and they do this at their own direction. Sometimes they are called out for it, sometimes not. But rarely, there are people who speak only because asked a direct question. They answer by stating a simple, vague position that eighty percent of the population agrees with, they answer by leaning on the authority of others, and they temper their response by love, humility, and tolerance for those of different viewpoints in a way that almost nobody else does. It is these people that we need more of, yet it is these people who are attacked the most viciously and held up as examples of extremism.
