John Schwartz hints at this, but it should be much clearer: Parents need to ask their children what they believe on such topics as same-sex marriage when they come up. First, it allows this father to openly state his opinion and can then (hopefully) agree with his son's opinion. Allowing his son to openly speak on such topics will go a great way to letting his son understand that home is a safe space.

Secondly, it's just a matter of treating children as people, especially when it comes to crafting informed decisions. It's on opportunity to say "What do you think" and "Why do you think that way" and "Why does it matter or not matter." Those are lessons every child must learn. We cannot expect children to think clearly without some direction, and we can't expect it to come naturally as soon as they leave the home. It's rather like looking at porn for safe sex tactics. Watching TV isn't the best way to have them shape opinions that matter.
