Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it, Christians are advised by Christ himself to turn the other cheek when mocked and ridiculed. My pastor's message just last Sunday was about this very phenomenon, and why it's necessary and important to learn how to turn the other cheek--not to physical violence as FeedMeCrap misinterprets, but to infliction of emotional pain.
I do not particularly like your pastor's take personally.
Christ pretty regularly ripped em a new backdoor actually. WHen they were trying to toss down his relationship with God he actually dissed em in his own Godly well pretty darn well.
He did not turn the other cheek, he made them look bad.
At the end, there was a lot of Jewish prophesy he had to fulfill to get his message through, he did not take up arms and fight, but he did not sick back and not take someone to task.
