In light of recent circumstances in our nation, I think Pastor Vincent could have hardly expressed it better, and I quote verbatim (with colour embellishments of my own):
"How do we respond?
We do not retaliate, we do not fight back.
Antagonism towards the church is expected, but when persecuted we do not persecute.
The world does not look kindly because the message we bring is in direct contradiction to the values of the world."
