To cave on a basic issue of morality shows those who cave lack morality.
I'd rather be right and lose and to give up. Have you noticed that liberals don't give up even when it's not popular? Why should we give up our principles just because they may be momentarily not all that popular.
It's a good thing Mr. Schlichter wasn't one of the early Christians else he'd have advised them to give up.
