    God no! My children my learn to decorate tastefully.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    as a 11 year old you would have a problem with your son deal with it. I always say I would not have my sons attend a girls camp or my daughters attend a boys camp where they had to sleep over night in small tents with the opposite sex...........sorry

    My views on that were provided in a previous post so I won't go into detail about it - suffice it to say that in my view there is no greater threat of a gay person being a peodophile than a straight person.

    I don't even know where you're coming from with these comments, esp. in response to me. But since you mention it, girls are at much greater risk when it comes to pedophilia. And yet, there is no discussion about "letting" girls have straight male teachers or counselors, etc.

    I think, again think, that extremists in a homosexual setting can be a problem..No extremist - no problem...We must at all times think of our children..
    So much of this depends on the age of the children at camp..
    Even, in the previous century, a certain percentage of camp members would be homosexual, and, I'd that it was handled well enough, but today ??
    With so much extremism and lack of sensitivity, IMO

    Wow 67-13 pretty much along Conservative/Liberal beliefs.......I wonder how many of you lefties would feel the same way if their 11 year old faced the isue and you have to make the decision.....I think the poll would be much closer.
