Get the troll baiting mug.
Troll baiting is the act of giving yourself or your argument credibility by intentionally martyring yourself by picking fights with extremist nut jobs who oppose you or your argument. The last thing a troll baiter wants is to come up against someone who is calm, intelligent, passionate and highly informed on the subject who can easily blow holes in their argument without getting vulgar or making personal attacks.
The minister was just troll baiting when he protested the sinfulness of dancing at a nightclub in a bad neighbor hood instead of the university dance department down the road because he could get more supporters by being a victim than by being wrong.
