    and that's fine and how it should be. But it is, nonetheless naive and negligent to believe that you are somehow "protecting" them when in reality you are probably doing just the opposite.

    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
    Are you OK with them openly sleeping in small tents with openly gay boys........We are talking about 10 or 11 year old boys......Very subject to peer presssure.If you are then would you let the boys sleep with the girls in a coed situation.

    I am fine how are you? I hope you and your family are well......I have missed your good posts.

    More same sex childhood sexual experimentation takes place among straight boys than gay boys. That is simple Psychology 101 if you've ever taken a course.

    Yes, they do, including (although more rarely) women. Where I have a problem is in the assumption that whether one is straight or gay, one is a pedophile--a predator.

    Of course it's not the focus, because NP isn't remotely interested in looking at this issue in a rational, non-homophobic way. Neither is Maggie (*Edit - Maggie probably is interested in doing so, but isn't actually doing so at the moment*). By making the focus on the presence or absense of a gay child at the camp, they're both ignoring the very obvious fact that undesirable sexual experimentation is potentially a problem at any sleepaway camp (or for that matter, in a million other contexts). The very fact that NP is raising this as strictly a gay issue demonstrates how bigoted he is on this issue.

    You said I was left wing, I am on topic. you're just told think what you thinkBy politicians with Rs by their name.

    I'm just like you, I'm Catholic I'm conservative I atempted to join the Navy. it's just you hold I rather odd belief regarding my sexuality, which isn't very conservative. It is my opinion, a conservative one, no nobody should really middle of my private life.

    I have a lesbian relative and her partner who have babysat for me before. I have so many gay people in so many branches of my family that the family tree is decorated absolutely fabulously. It is not always about homophobia believe it or not. I have no ideas how my kids would react to that situation living with an openly gay peer--they could turn into the kid who stoned Matthew Shepherd to death or be willing to go along with that kid who did that for all I know. It is more about what I think they might or might not be comfortable with.

    you're dodging it again like a coward. your priest is teaching false Christianity. and you're not Catholic you're a liar.

    come on and beat some of the skills and knowledge if you're man enough.
