The Latin word for "dispute" implies something more formal than a Prot disparaging the Faith by shooting off his mouth.  In that case, we are supposed to defend the faith to the best of our abilities, making sure we don't "wing it".  Say as much as we know, learn more from our priest, etc.  A lot of Protestants are well-practiced in mental gymnastics and will run rings around people who 1) aren't as learned, 2) not as smart.  It's not a sin not to be a theologian or apologists - we all should be aware of our limits.

What we should not do, for example, is engage in e-mail debates and the like.  For further clarification, talk to your traditional priest and also the article I linked to gives some good explanations about this type of thing.
