    Oh so its the consistent week that bothers you but not the years (with breaks) that a coach, teachers, friends, playing, etc etc got it, doesnt make sense to me at all but got it.

    Do you think I won't vet my son's teachers, coaches and friends? What kind of parent doesn't do that?
    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.”

    who said you wouldnt? not me

    not sure why your short reached and limiting vetting ranks above proper parenting though.

    I know religious authorities that vet all there kids associates but they failed accomplishing their goals because their parenting still sucked.

    Now i dont kow you in the least so im not saying your parenting sucks it could be top their awesome, what i am saying is your parenting if good will top all these "influences" you seemed concerned about.

It may be fun to say...but it's untrue. My views are completely and totally based on the behavior of every teenager on planet earth.
    Wow....I'm always amazed at the "ignornance is bliss" crowd. When did honesty become a value that you people despise so much? You would rather put your fingers in your ears and go....Lalalalala....and pretend that everything is perfectly bliss...rather than get the facts.
    BTW...I wouldn't call that "cautious parenting"....I would call it "negligent and naive parenting".

    So anyone who doesn't agree with you, Disneydude, is ignorant. And as you call me out for my supposed ignorance, you call me "you people." You have know idea how ironic that is. Go pick on the 21 people who voted no. I actually voted yes and then had second thoughts when I thought of 10-year-old kids and the possibility of misguided gay teenagers encouraging experimentation.

    Really it either matters or it doesn't. It seems so hypocritical to say "we are not an organization that is about sexuality, only if you are heterosexual". Now I understand that they don't want the BSA turning into a gay pride parade, but isn't it currently a heterosexual pride parade? The way I am with my sexuality is I don't mention it to people I am not screwing or discussing my sexuality with. Being that it isn't proper for me to discuss my sexuality with eleven year olds I don't, nobody else should either.

    So it either doesn't matter or it does, right now with a ban on a sexuality they are saying it does matter. I wonder how they feel about open asexual people, that is queer also.
    You need to read the BS oath sometime.

    Yes....what you are saying is that you would send your child to a camp as long as you were able to somehow rationalize that there won't be any gay people there because you would rather not know. That is absolutely "ignornace is bliss".

    That is negligent and naive parenting because the people who are most likely to abuse a child are not the ones who are open and honest about their sexuality...they are the ones who are closeted and living double lives.

    So while putting your fingers in your ears....lalalala...and believing that your kids are safter in that envionment than they would be in one where people are honest...is naive and ignorant.

    Talk to any psychologist out there and they will tell you that there is ZERO correlations between childhood sexual experimentation and homosexuality....so in other words, you kids are just as apt to experiment sexually in a camp with openly gay counselors and/or kids...as they would in a supposedly 100% straight heterosexual camp.

    Why is that any more of a problem than misguided straight teenagers encouraging experimentation?

    I never said that. I never inferred that. If you're going to jump in on a thread, please do yourself a favor: read a particular poster's posts first before you put words in their fingers. You.Are.Wrong.
