Why Use the Word “Apologetic” If You Aren’t Apologizing for Anything?

Question:

Is there some reason why you have to use the word "apologetics" to describe defending the faith, when our English language has thousands of other words that don't sound like you're sorry for something? I'm a Catholic defender, not an apologist.
