    It has to be because of some past trauma.

    I've been thinking about this, and came to the answer No. My reasoning is influence. I don't want my son to be influenced by actions that I don't approve of and are against my religion. So, while I wouldn't send him to a camp run by someone that is homosexual, I also wouldn't send him to a camp run by an adulterer, a liar, a thief, an alcoholic or anything else I find objectionable.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    That is well known. That's why I wonder. Not that it matters. But it is rather curious, no?

    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.
    I have no problem with gays......I want them to have equal rights which I believe can be easily accomplished with civil unions........again as far as the BS goes I would not let me 11 year old attend a camp with openly gay boys or and openly gay scoutmaster..........We should know a lot tomorrow....

    Do you think a person like that would be accepted as a scoutmaster or scout?

    Well, I have to admit, I would prefer my son to learn how to build a Pinewood Derby car more than how to bake a souffle.

    Are you suggesting the scout master would be orienting his troop to matters of sexuality? Is that what the Boy scouts are for? I don't think so my rightwing friend.

    I know you're not afraid that the Scout Master would try to molest the kids, are you?

    I mean, you being Catholic and all. I can't imagine you sending your kids to mass if things like that concerned you. The Catholic Church has a much more history of pedophilia and homosexual activity than the scouts. I don't see you bashing the church.

    How exactly would a homosexual influence your child?

    It's a good thing God didn't think the same way and just keep his Son up in Heaven with Him.
