    Which is perfectly legit. I can tell you from personal experience that if they grow up around known gay adults (as you suggested is the case), they're probably not going to have any significant issues with homosexual peers.

    Well, it sounds like one of those dorky political myths like homophobes are actually repressed homosexuals (some are, but as this thread highlights, it's over employed for political effect). So I have my doubts there is actually any validity behind it

    But look forward to reading your citations

    If my priest says homosexuality isn't mentioned in the original Scripture and yours is preaching against it there's a problem someone is wrong. we have scripture to back me up, what do you have?
    lol, these arguments are always hilarious: Regardless who is telling you what, or reading what, those books are so highly interpreted that there is no correct answer to what is a "true christian"

    No...nothing like that. It generally comes up in the context that just because children engage in sexual experimentation among members of the same sex, it is not an indication that they are gay. It is very common for straight/heterosexual kids to engage in same-sex experimentation and it has no influence on their sexual orientation.

    So in actuality...its kinda opposite of what you were thinking. I'll try to find some of the studies. Its been a few years, but I still have most of my texts.

    raise your kids not to stone Matthew Shepard to death, and not to be easily manipulated. they're young enough that you can still address this. it isn't the pleasant thing to talk about with children. I know I do it for the Boy Scouts every 6 months. but equipped with knowledge you kids can know how to protect themselves

    this is not what you originally claimed. You originally claimed
    More same sex childhood sexual experimentation takes place among straight boys than gay boys.
    Interesting that you are already seemingly backtracking from it

    I understand straight kids can experiment with same sex relationships. The problem is, that this IS NOT what you originally claimed

    Seriously? I've posted it twice, both roughly within the last hour or so. See posts #554 and #572.
