    I'm sorry Navy...but you are not one to talk. Before you start preaching to others about living "morally straight" lives...perhaps you have forgotten to look in your own closet.

    You were saying that you would not send your child to a camp with openly gay kids....but would feel perfect fine to send them to a camp where they were closeted because you wouldn't know. Outa sight....outa mind.

    Again. That is not anywhere close to what I said.

    Since somewhere between 1 and 10% of the population is gay, depending on who you believe, any camp with a hundred or more boys would be likely to have at least one gay camper.

    Isn't it better all around if that camper (those campers) can be open about it?

    It's time for the BSA to admit that at least some of the scouts, and probably some of the adult leaders as well, are homosexuals and that it doesn't matter in the least.

    I was a boy Scout for 14 years.

    Nothing I do is against it.

    I am trustworthy, loyal, helpful, courteous, kind, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.

    I do my duty to my God and country. I still obey the Scout law, I help other people all the time, I am physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.

    I am an eagle.

    So not sure what this post is about.

    You are just being baited. That side of the aisle just refuses to acknowledge that there are creepy gays out there who are in people's face with it in what most people not looking to make a political point would find somewhere between inappropriate and absolutely rude. There are gays I don't care if my kids are around, and there are gays that no parent in the right mind would let their child be around unattended for an extended period of time.

    Would you send you child to an evangelical camp?

    Would I send my kid to a camp that had evangelical kids and some evagenical counselors? Absolutely. I would have no issue with that whatsoever.

    Would I send them to an evangelical jesus camp? No.

    Straight people in a Straight camp with only boys would have no reason to experiment.....They are not attracted to the same sex....Why can't you get that through your head????????????
