The corollary to Christ's passivism is that Christians don't just lie down in front of enemies to be steamrolled over; they use truth instead of force. Christ said his purpose (singular) was to testify to the truth. Truth is the only force corrupters cannot defeat.

There is a highly developed protection barrier to truth in society--persecution of whistle blowers, classification of government information, power mongers policing themselves throughout the professions, ad hominem attacks upon critics and authoritarian media which filters the reality which society gets. Getting truth out through those barriers is a dwindling effort in society, as corruption increases and society gets overwhelmed by the result.

Excuse me, but when did giving a 15 year old a blow job turn into "rape" or "pedophilia." Look in the dictionary before you start tossing around inflammatory words that don't apply to the subject, unless you consider yourself entitled to rewrite the English language to suit your agenda.
