Advice for LDS Parents on Talking to Kids about Same-sex Marriage

Linda and Richard Eyre offered some good advice for LDS parents on talking to kids about same-sex marriage in an article in the Deseret News:
"We worry that, in an effort to respect church teachings about the sanctity of marriage, some parents who are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints may be inadvertently encouraging prejudice in their children. Conversely, other Mormon parents, in trying to teach tolerance, may be unintentionally undermining their children’s faith in the church and its teachings."
"Parents can strive to help their children feel strongly that all faiths, including their own, deserve respect and tolerance; and that it is possible to look for the good in everyone."
