    You are completely wrong. Of course there are some gays...just like some straights that are "Creepy" guys that you wouldn't want your kids around. But it is completely naive to believe that you are somehow "protecting" your children with a blanket policy that you wouldn't send your kid to a camp with an openly gay counselor. The reality is....THAT counselor is not likely to be a "molestor" and chances are...you stand a greater risk sending them to a camp with supposedly straight/married in the closet counselors. But yet...certain people are perfectly fine with that because they pull the wool over their eyes and pretend that their children are safe.

    Whether or not I have children (hypothetically or otherwise) is irrelevant.

    Then probably not to be honest if it was a sleep away camp and the openly gays were not segregated. Too many bad things could happen either way in that setting.

    well you're apparently following a charlatan, and woe be onto you for misrepresenting Christian Scripture. The Naked follow the blind all the time,

    First of all I love "my left wing friend" still ... Hello Navy hope u are good.

    On topic now I dont have a son but I do have lots of nephews and gay relatives who are just fine to hang out together or camp. As with any stranger gay or straight I would be cautious to let them go unless I knew them and was sure there is no second agenda. I would not let "gay" define someone's character as to whether or not they could be trusted wiith a child I love. Predators come in all forms
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    LOL....then why are you always the one casting all the stones?

    You love to come on here and point fingers at people and talk about "morals" and "values".....when you don't even live by them yourself.

    I, personally, have never made the claim that I am without sin.

    My kids, my rules. That is just how it is when it comes to this hypothetical.

    I do not deny there are creepy straight people, but that is not really the focus of the question in the OP. I am not comfortable with sleep away camps generally anyway.
