    It would depend. If they were flaming effeminate gay's, I probably wouldn't want my kid hanging around them too long in case any of that would rub off on him. I wouldn't care if my kid was a girl. It has nothing to do with whether I think they'll rape my kid but everything to do with I don't want that kind of personality being taught to my son. I probably wouldn't care if my son was gay.

    This would be my concern, but in the end I would probably not do anything about it if my son wanted to go for whatever reason.

    I grew up with my effeminate gay nephew, everytime we played power-rangers he was the pink one, he was the girl in every game we played, he would always comment about is hair and whether an activity would mess up his clothes or hair... man that pissed me off at times lol.
    I have a view on what masculine should be, and that's what I want to teach to my son if he isn't gay. It's like any value you have opinions on that you want to teach to your kids.

Their actions do, and I know that most homosexuals do those actions.

    No one said anything about children witnessing sexual acts, so what you seem to be doing is spurious imho. I'd appreciate it if you didn't make assumptions about my posts and then try to argue using them.
    Well, how can your son be molded and influenced by disgusting gay sex w/o witnessing it??

    I would have no problem with it. Just because someone is a homosexual doesn't mean they want to have butt sex with little Timmy or have oral little Johnny's little johnny. Its the in the closet homosexuals who might be pedophiles that I am more worried about. As far as I know the camps don't strip job applicants bare naked and show them pictures or videos of boys,men,girls or women to see what gives him an erection.So they can't easily weed those people. Before you start accusing me of being some lefty yes I actually do oppose gay marriage.That means no marriage, no civil unions, domestic partnerships or any other paper coated term for marriage.Marriage should only be between man and women.I am also opposed to gay adoptions, I feel that children should only be adopted by married couples consisting of a man and woman. I feel that children need a father and mother.Gay couples can not provide this and neither can single parents.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Interesting the lack of a discussion on how the kid might feel about it......like I said before, just depends.

    Because my son would be in that environment with homosexuals who do those actions. I wouldn't feel comfortable with my child being heavily influenced by a person who does those acts, especially at a young age. Though my sons would not know because they are innocent boys, I, their father, would. I would prefer my sons being raised to be manly, similar to the Spartans of old.

    Anyways, I'm not sure what I'd do. As an atheist, some expect me to have absolutely no apprehension about it... as if they demand I not be disgusted. Well, in my opinion it is disgusting. One man takes his corncob and rams it into another mans cornhole. Pardon me if that makes me want to barf. I don't feel it's natural, and I don't see how doing so succeeds in any natural act besides some awkward sexual gratification.

    Should homosexuals have rights? Sure, let them. Do I have the right to not take my son to a place like that? Absolutely. I'm not in the business of creating fake outrage against any person who doesn't agree with my point of view. If I feel homosexual acts are disgusting, and I value my children and want to mold them as I see fit, I will do so. No one has the right not to be offended. That asides, I'd rather have my kids interested in things besides camps, like gardening.
    Nobody is talking about rights. Not sure where that comes from. Nor is NP getting "tarred and feathered", but he is having his false views pointed out to him. We call this debate. It is something we do here at Debate Politics. Religion and orientation have nothing to do with each other, so no idea why you brought up your beliefs in that realm. Posting on an internet forum is an unnatural act, and yet it seems to gratify you, so there goes that argument of yours. Why would you not want to take your son to a place where homosexuals have rights?

    It is camp, usually fraternization is off limits anyway. You can't catch 'homosexuality' like it is a disease or something. Can't see how it could be an issue unless the camp leaders were discharged pedophiles.

    You realize that Spartans like other ancient Greeks frequently engaged in male sex acts, and viewed females as only good enough for housework and making children - even if they did let them fight. Christian knights would be a better example, at least in the sense that they rarely (if ever) had sex with the same gender.
