It really does depend on the circumstance, but if that person feels free
to give their views in a friendly manner, then of course you should
respond with your views in the same way. On the other hand, if you spend
all day correcting people, you can become a bore and no-one listens.

One thing that I never let go, though, is racism. Too many people feel
that they can spout the most repugnant racism and are surprised when
anyone disagrees.
