Precision, my good man. The laity cannot preach in the liturgy. Any believer can preach with a soapbox on a street corner, should he please. Now that might be imprudent, and it might not be, but that's another issue. The point is, it's incorrect to say the laity cannot preach whatsoever.

That's not quite true.  Preaching has to do with speaking with authority as a representative of the Church.  The pulpit is the most obvious place, but it occurs outside of the pulpit as well.

Quote:"Preach the Gospel, use words when necessary."

Hands down, the above quote is the biggest cop-out Catholics use avoid evangelizing people for Jesus Christ.

That's nonsense.  First, if you want to act like a Protestant and beat people over the head with the Bible, go for  it.  If you read Church history and see how people were evangelized, it was first by setting an example.  Second, not everyone has that charism.  Some people are good theologians but lousy apologists.  To demand that everyone go out and evangelize is just, well, stupid.

We do?

I would hope so.  Or do you consider sedevacantist apologetics a good thing?
