    Re: Would you allow your son to go to camp where there were openly gay members? [W:19

    This morning Soledad O'Brian had a Representative from Boy Scouts of America on her show. He made a good point. He said "My neighbor is a great guy and a family man, but I would not allow my three daughters to go camping with him. Would I allow my son to go camping with a man who is attracted to males? Absolutely not". Soledad responded "Are you saying that Homosexual men are all pedophiles?" Of course not he replied. Well I agree with him. I have two daughters, and when they were kids there is no way I'm letting them go camping with any man including my own brother. So why would I let my son go camping with a known homosexual man? It ain't happening.

    And you know what? I cannot take it anymore. I cannot take coming into threads like this and seeing people being so prejudicial against gay people (kids, no less) and then claiming that they are the ones who are being unfairly criticized - as if it's problematic for people like me to point out prejudice and ignorance. It's not wrong. It's the right thing to do and I will continue to do it until the day I ****ing die no matter how many "cards" people accuse me playing to defend themselves without actually having any research or logic to back up their archaic positions. Ignorance and prejudice are the problem. Period.
    I am not prejudiced against gays. If you get your jollies off by accusing me of ignorance and prejudice? I can't do anything about that. We're talking about parenting. I'm sorry if my thinking about 13-14-15-year-olds being "openly gay" doesn't resonate with you. It does with me.

    what is the difference between gay and openly gay as far as it creating a panic about your child's well being?

    You honestly think your childs potential to be "manipulated" is dramatically increased by the presence of gays?

    again i ask What are these "unpleasant" experiences that you speak of and how are they dramatically increased by the presence of "gays" as supposed to their non-presence (or better yet OPEN presence)

    I see my parenting beliefs have sent ya'll through the roof. I asked Tom what he would do, and I got a shrug...and a "What's the difference?' I don't have any kids. Quite likely my beliefs are more black and white than someone who's been there.

    No, I wouldn't. My son has plenty to time after he leaves our household to be exposed to things that we teach him are wrong. We teach him to be non-judgemental, fair, and kind to others. But we do not teach him to be accepting of things that are against our faith. Being gay is against our faith. If my son were to go to a camp and a gay person was there, unbeknowst to us, so be it. We would use it as a teaching moment and move on. By subjecting him to something we know to be present beforehand, we are not properly guarding him against the things we teach him to be wrong.

    1.) its not jollies its facts based of of YOUR words
    ho·mo·pho·bi·a (hm-fb-)
    n.
    1. Fear of or contempt for lesbians and gay men.
    2. Behavior based on such a feeling.

    this is factually you unless youd like to revise or deeper explain your statements

    2.)not through the roof at all im trying to understand why you have homophobic view, where they come from and what logic is behind them

    for example why do you think open gays are more dangerous and more likely to commit assault than closed gays or straights?

    I've explained my position quite thoroughly. If you decide my not agreeing with you is homophobic? Frankly? I don't give a damned. My comment re jollies was addressed to another poster. One more time: my position is based on perceived behavior of teenagers...not gays. If that's not enough? Please move on to bash someone else.

    have you gone camping with the Boy Scouts? I ask because the times I did I can tell you more than one adult goes on the trip. When I went a couple of wives went as well.

    So unlike a Catholic Priest alone with his alter boys a Boy Scout Adult Leader doesn't go off alone with boys.

    So the Boy Scout rep mis-states the situation, it would be like a girl's camp-out with several adults present, most of them women.

    Giving it a bit more thought the women, on the Scouting camp-outs I attended way back when, are just as threatening to the young boys as any gay adult leader....

    1.)agreeing with me is meaningless

    the definition of the word i posted makes your views factually homophobic why does that bother

    2.) so then you wouldnt let your kids go to ANY camp then ?

    im not bashing you, sorry you think that but its not true.
