    I do not care about the presence of gays....I highly doubt if I would even know about it.....and gays have the same rights to attend the same camp...

    I simply do not want a camp where "homos rule" - if there is such a thing....
    In what possible way would a camp cater to the openly gay members too much? You think there gonna show gay porn every other day after swimming?

    What "catering" does a homosexual need, exactly?

    It's not like camp is a hook-up environment. They don't require any sort of "catering."

    There is only one difference between gay people and straight people: who they prefer in romantic and/or sexual relationships. Camps do not cater to romantic or sexual desires. So what is the issue?

    If there is an emphasis on story sharing at the camp, I think gay attendants should feel free to share their stories about relationships or coming out. But that isn't "catering" any more than it would be to say that someone can share their religious and family experiences, since each is unique.

    If they are in the closet how do we know they are gay?

Hard for me to get my mind around how any parent would be okay with that but to each his own.
    I can remember when I was in the BSA we set up tents where 4 or 5 boys slept and there was not much room.

    What decisions are you talking about? I didn't say anything about decisions.

    Then I'd be more than willing to bet you've slept with a gay person.

    Looks like you were just hating on social conservatives. If it's wrong to hate on gays, as a societal group, shouldn't it be equally wrong to hate on social conservatives as a group? And God help the gay social conservative - you may not know it, but there are such people - would you love them because they're gay but hate them because they're social conservatives?

    How about we treat people as individuals and only condemn them when they actually do something worth condemning.

    I can all but guarantee you've showered with gay guys too.

    If you've ever taken a shower in a group shower setting, you've more than likely exposed your naughty bits to a gay guy.

    How's that bite your apple?
