When Matthew Vines first came out as gay, his father had trouble accepting it; his church ultimately couldn’t come to terms with it, either. Today, the duo is touring the country to talk to people and churches about why they should accept same-sex relationships.

It’s a mission that, of course, is easier said than done. Vines and his father sat down for an hour after our April 2 show to answer some questions from listeners on Facebook. You can read the full Q+A , but here are some of the highlights:
