A reader asks me a question I don’t feel very well qualified to answer

Sez he:

While watching the Olympics we saw the Chevy commercial with the gay couple and kids. Since it seems (soon) that we will be seeing such references frequently, do you have any advice for helping parents to talk about these things with our kids? How can we both understand and love? I don’t want the kids thinking about it too much – and I didn’t want them to think about it at all – but I do want them to have clarity and the capacity to act charitably. It seems that the attitude of “dusting-off one’s feet and moving on” is over. The pope calls for love, God calls for love. I want to feel scandalized by sin and not immune or uncaring. I really don’t know how to respond.

My advice is to write Dr. Greg Popcak about this question and see what he says. This is more in his wheelhouse. I don’t want to give you bad advice.
