One of those annoying douches who apologizes before saying something horribly offensive, ignorant, or demeaning to you. The apology is supposed to make it nicer somehow--or they're attempting to be PC (which is annoying as well).

These type of people also lose credibility on their beliefs since it conveys less confidence about their beliefs.
I'm sorry, but I think you're going to Hell for not being baptized.

I'd like to apologize in advance but I think you're a huge, worthless douchebag.

Quit being an apologist.

An apologist is someone who argues in defense of a controversial truth, usually but not always associated with Christianity.
During slave times in the United States, an apologist would defend that slavery was all right, by citing portions of the bible where God's favorites owned slaves.
