We don’t need to be ashamed for trying to convert people with respectful and polite arguments. The culture is trying to convert us with shame and insults. Which method of engaging people do you think is more respectful, more honest? Shaming and insulting people as if they were a puppy who’s peed on the carpet? Or offering them arguments and reasons as if they were a dignified adult? — Gordon Hawkes (from, Apologetics Harms and Offends People)
