    If you had a daughter, would you allow her to go to a camp where there also boys at the camp? Would you not allow her because you would be afraid that she would experiment with things?

    Would you be worried with your child experimenting with drugs? What about all the peer pressure they would face with drugs?

    You are preaching to the choir. I was once where you are now.

    They say the definition of insanity is to repeat the same actions and expect different results. I gave up on my rightwing friend a long time ago. I have found it to be more mind settling to just accept the ol' coot for who he is and leave it at that. I now look upon him as I would my aged uncle. He has had a very long life and went through some rough times. And, obviously, he is a victim of his times, as we all are. The best thing we can do is keep their pillow fluffed and their blanket across their legs. Try that approach and tell me it is not more comforting to your mind. It worked for me.

    The ones that are the hardest to love are usually the one's that need the lovin' the most.

    I wouldn't worry about drugs. I wouldn't worry about regular sexual experimentation. If you don't see a difference between heterosexual and homosexual experimentation, we'll just have to disagree. Homosexuality is an anomaly. Heterosexuality is not.

    Well, yeah I guess when you see homosexuality as an "anomaly" that sort of stops the discussion dead in its tracks. I wouldn't want my son to be do anything that was bad, either.

    It's just, I don't see homosexuality as "bad".

    An anomoly isn't necessarily bad. I don't see homosexuality as bad either. But. If my son is homosexual, he will find out on his own -- not because some kids talked him into experimenting while he's away at camp. Definition of anomoly I'm using is:

    Deviation or departure from the normal or common order or form.

    -- I did change my mind after I thought about it. Not because of homosexual adults, but because of the children. And, you're welcome. *hugs*
