    Uh, probably exactly what we said we'd do in the poll?

    Your wording is problematic and I doubt you will find wording which is not contentious to at least some. Your hot button word is "openly" which is suggestive.

    Over in Pelosi led San Francisco, "openly" gay makes for good pornography movies, right out there in the streets. Should you attend a Pelosi "leather parade", well, wear dark shades, wear a raincoat and don't take your kids!

    At a camp, a retreat, a shoreline picnic, this "openly" notion is not so volatile. Couple of boys holding hands, couple of girls kissing, this is not a problem and is not the business of others. My view is what others do, while appropriate public behavior, is simply the business of none. Your circumstances could easily be reversed.

    During a gay parade in Los Angeles, where gays and lesbians keep their clothes on and respect others, you and your family would be the oddballs. I might ask those of the gay and lesbian community, "Would you take your children to an event where there are openly straight people?" I have a hunch you and your family would be welcomed, especially your children who would delight in this L.A. colorful parade which is televised, and never any law enforcement problems.

    A more challenging reversal for you, Navy Pride, is naked truth. Three of us in our small family are nudists. We love attending nudist resorts, beaches and planned activities, lots of friendship and fun! Challenge for you is this nudist lifestyle is popular with all ages of people, from grandma to granddaughter. This is adults and children, all naked and enjoying fun. There are some mixed in who wear clothes or partial clothing. None really care. Would you take your kids to a camp where families are openly nude?

    Reminds me of our girl. She makes a friend at a resort, a young girl like herself. Her new friend is shy and wearing clothes, well, a swimsuit. Our girl is nude. Our daughter takes her friend's hand, pulls her friend into a locker room. Not long, out those two come, both nude, and they jump right into a swimming pool with lots of other nude people. Had to drag both out of this pool after a couple of hours; they looked like wrinkled up prunes hollering, "Marco", "Polo" followed by grins and giggles.

    Our girl made a new friend for life, her new friend never wore clothes again at this resort and enjoyed loads of fun!

    Navy Pride, is being straight or gay, being clothed or nude, is this a measure of a person's worth? Of course not. What you are working at is imposing Christian moral values upon others which is wrong headed. Last time Christians got all crazy about their moral values, they slaughtered twenty-five-million of my peoples, men, women and children alike.

    Moral values are personal, not public. Your moral values are not my business, nor are moral values of others your business.

    Hmmmm, pretty sure I wouldn't want my kid to be cajoled into taking off her swimsuit if she didn't want to and I'm sorry, I wouldn't have my kid hang out with a bunch of naked adults.

    I don't know . . . it's given me pause. My first reaction was, It wouldn't make any difference." My second thought was, "It just might." I voted with the majority, but there'd be more to my decision than that.

    Not everyone who answered the poll is a "lefty". I'm genuinely curious, NP. Do you know any gay people?

    And, of course, the constant double standard for all of these homophobic ideas. No one is ever concerned about lesbians. Only gay males. The question is not "would you allow your child", but only your son. Further proof that, under it all, homophobia is just insecurity about strange penises.

    Overall - I think it's tragic that adults prefer to raise their children to make snap, harsh and even false judgement of people based on rumors and glib one-liners through the grapevine.

    I was at least raised to try to get to know someone, first, before deciding if they're decent or not.

    Maybe I ask - just what is wrong with said gay individual? I don't even get the issue at all - is it the child possibly learning that some people are attracted to the same sex? Or the fear that their child will be raped?

    You cannot hide your children in a box for their whole lives - they will learn that some people are homosexual. They will learn about sex, too - and fellatio and cunnilingus. They will learn about violence, twisted depraved individuals who murder children and all sorts of crazed things in the world. Nothing you say or do will 'protect' them from life.

    So - obvious the fear that being gay makes you a child molester has been hashed out time and again and we always conclude and prove that there's no correlation and a child is more likely to be violated by someone of the opposite gender - who is close in some fashion to the family/child.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    I don't mind the question so much if he was genuinely curious and somewhat willing to consider the responses.
