“For many in contemporary American life, no matter their politics or religion, ‘kindness’ is equated with weakness.”

"In his letter to his protégé Timothy, the apostle Paul declared: 'Have nothing to do with foolish, ignorant controversies; you know that they breed quarrels. And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil, correcting his opponents with gentleness' (2 Timothy 2:23-24)." - Russell Moore
