133. "I've often asked myself why I put up with it."
When confronted with immoral, evil behavior and beliefs, your acquiescence and silence equals tacit consent.

"However, that would cause irreparable damage within my family with which I'm very close."

Silence is consent. Doing the right thing isn't always easy or comfortable, but for people of conscience, there is no choice in the matter; one must speak out against the intolerant, hateful invective voiced by evil people, or become a complicit party to the same.
