Questions Covered:

17:15 – Deuteronomy 22:5 talks about how men that dress in women’s clothes are condemned and looked at in a negative manner. Is that talking about transgenderism, and can that be applied today?
21:26 – With the young adult peer group I have, how do I speak the truth to my friends about chastity and gender without being insensitive and hurting their feelings?
31:30 – How do you know if your child is going through a transition without you knowing about it?
37:11 – We are grandparents of a 15-year-old girl that we’ve heard is thinking about transitioning. She’s threatening to commit suicide if everyone doesn’t support her. How can we deal with and help this situation?
45:10 – How can we as Catholics provide outreach to people that are dealing with this gender situation and do so in a way that is non-judgmental?
52:26 – I saw a study that said transgender identity can be linked to brain activity. Is this true?

Questions Covered:

15:12 – My 27-year-old daughter has come out. If God makes you who you are and being gay is a sin, then how can a child be born gay? How am I supposed to as a mom accept her lifestyle if it’s a sin to be gay?
24:37 – In the bible, God says marriage is between a man and woman and to cut off people that aren’t doing what’s right. In that context, how do we deal with the difficult relationships in which we know people that are same sex attracted?
33:34 – If the bible says it’s not right to be a homosexual, like in Sodom and Gomorrah, then why do some religions not take this into account?
46:32 – I’m 42 and grown up Catholic my entire life. I’m a gay man. We were always told that homosexuality is wrong but because I was being told that, I found myself hating myself. When I went to a private Methodist college, I branched out and spoke to many different priests. Isn’t it worse to lie to yourself?

Questions Covered:

18:25 – I have a 2 year old now but my husband and I have always wanted to adopt. If I’m already overwhelmed, how do I know if we’re ready to adopt?

32:31 – What is the oldest age of a couple/individual that you would recommend to adopt a child? 
43:18 – I’m 45 years old, single, and with no kids. What are your thoughts on single people adopting? 
46:04 – I think it’s wonderful the way you are about your adoptive kids. How could I start a resource to find more people like you? There’s so many kids taken away by CPS so I wish more could be placed with people like you. 
51:02 – How does it work if you were in a situation where you opted to adopt a child from a woman that was looking to give away her child? Do you have to go through an agency?

Questions Covered:

39:18 – You talking about kicking your son to the curb brought up some old wounds about my parents. It didn’t strike me quite right. Can you talk through why you ultimately did it? 
42:26 – Can I spiritually adopt my daughter and granddaughter who are atheists? 
45:57 – As an older single adult, I’ve found it difficult to be alone. I just wanted to comment that there is a whole group of people that I feel people should remember. 
49:18 – Could you go into more detail about the exorcism prayers you were talking about? Do you have to be in a state of grace to say them? 
51:10 – Can you talk about adopting/praying for your own siblings? How do you reach out to them and help them get back to faith when they don’t want to listen to you?

Questions Covered:

03:30 – How can an infinite God be three persons if three is a limit?
06:30 – Does Canon 1248 of the 1984 Code of Canon Law prohibit attending an SSPX Mass to fulfill your Sunday obligation?

35:20 – How do we properly dispose of devotional materials in a respectful way?
39:20 – I heard that our prayers for our loved ones are only efficacious if we’re in a state of grace. I think that might cause despair since so few people are in a state of grace.
43:15 – How do I get past misinformation about what the Church Fathers said? Whenever I hear anyone quote them it’s always in favor of his own view, and they wrote too much for me to read it all.
45:30 – My friend told me that I have to be perfect to get to heaven, and I’m confused because I thought only Jesus and Mary were perfect.
48:30 – If Jesus saved the world, why is it still so messed up and why does he have to come again?
52:20 – How do we as Christians approach interfaith relationships in a healthy way?
