The Archdiocese of Chicago is asking the question of apologetics. As in, "How should we defend the faith?" Not as in, "Oops, I'm sorry..." It's important to take the question literally: it's how to defend the faith itself, not how to defend people or personalities associated with the Church. If you're in Chicago, your reply needs to go to your rectory or deanery. But it's a good question for the comment box, too!
What are we "defending," when and why, when we "defend the faith"?
