Morning Scepticism: Liberal Defence

With the rise of vocal atheism, liberal theists seem to have two separate counters. If the attack is on the beliefs of evangelical Christianity then the response is to label such attacks as caricatures of true faith and complain that it doesn't capture the essence of what God is. Attack the beliefs of liberal Christianity then the response is to question why one would go after such beliefs when it's the evangelical forms that are the problem. When there's an attack on the sense of the sacred why should we expect anything else?

There is a third response, but it's not vocal: turn the other cheek.
