    Ikari is no Conservative and I am not sure about James.....I have known him long before you even knew about DP and he confuses me all the time.....He is exactly the kind of person that helped reelect Barrack Hussein Obama and I can not forgive him for that. If I had to guess I believe he is one of those Ron Paul people.............

    What is an "openly gay" camp? And why would there be a camp for children that is sexually oriented to begin with?

    Unless it is a religious camp for alter boys, I can't even imagine such a place.

    But if, hypothetically, there is such a camp, as long as dudes weren't walking around suckin' face, or heterosexuals for that matter, and the camp was safe and fun, I see no reason why people of alternate sexual persuasions should be excluded. They are a part of everyday society. Why shield our children from such harmless realities?

    I'm sure at this same camp, there will be a small percentage of people of all walks of life. Libbos, nutters, wingnuts, gays, blacks, whites, latinos. A proportional cross section of modern society. That may be a good place to bring the children together at an early age to teach them tolerance and acceptance of others. But I have no credentials to make such a declaration.

    Now if it was a KKK summer camp, maybe not so much a cross section of society. I'm sure no gays or blacks or jews or latinos would be at that camp. I definitely wouldn't let my kids go to that camp.

    No, just going by what the mom told me.

    I might have been misunderstood. Nothing improper would take place DURING rehearsals or recitals. It was during down time when kids got together outside of official events but of the same kids from the various dance teams.

    No. Places like that are perfect hot spots for pedophiles, and the fact that an openly gay man is working there would be the perfect thing to take attention off of the predator.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Tomorrow the BS are taking a vote whether to allow openly gay scoutmasters or boys to join.

    I'm thinking that someone, whom's name shall go unmentioned, may have had a tramatic experience in their youth. Perhaps at a church retreat or on a ship.

    I am puzzled as to their motivation and intolerance and never ending war on gays. It is an obsession.

    It has to be because of some past trauma.

    Typically, I would think the individual is fighting their own homosexual tendancies by overcompensating in voicing their disdain. But I am not sure as to their motivation. But it is rather queer.
