I would have to say that option #3 is probably best, since it's basically a much more soft and yet strong version of #1.

I am not to be one who gets offended easily, even when there are enough grounds to do so. I go more for the easier approach, because I like to think that opportunities to eaducate people AND to hear what they have to say, is very important.

When we let hustel emotions get in the way, we block communication. It would be nice if all conversations were to follow this soft and strong outline, right?

I would have charmed her, invited her for coffee, let her talk, then I would tell her about how I was harassed in high school because I was a weakling and didn't like sports. I would get her all nice and sympathetic before I even introduced the gay factor. Let her feel just how unchristian she really is then send her on her merry way to a gay couple raising their son.

Of course, inviting her into the B&B will introduce her to so many stereotypical gay people who potentially can reinforce her fears but I would take that chance. They might be stereotypical but they are lovable.

Way to go in this episode! Kyle handled it correctly. Speaking from the heart but with firm resolution to combat ignorance does plant the seeds of change in people. Thanks for a great strip!

I had a similar experience in the mall when some jerk asked me if I wanted to sign a petition to keep marriage between men and women, but I wasn't as nice as Kyle, I told him where he could stick it.

Third option is best. Gently but firmly defending what we feel to be right.
