Why is this so damned hard to understand? Pretty much everybody would agree that you don't put prepubescent boys and girls together in the same tent and you damned sure don't do it when they're teens. You also don't send some adult male off into the wilderness all alone with a group of girls. That's pretty easy to understand but for some weird reason that same common sense shouldn't apply to homosexuals? Why the hell not!!??
I really like your post.
I was going to read through this thread and reply to some posts, but you've pretty well got all of my talking points covered.
Robert Green Ingersoll was a great man. He was a staunch, conservative Republican and an agnostic. He would be totally out of place in today's out of touch, running out of time, GOP.
