    Oh for gods sake NP...why would you make a poll if the only result you are really going to believe is the one that isn't going to happen? It's the 21st century. Most people know gay people. They are just like the rest of us.

    Well I've got a number of gay friends, many of them raising children. What I have found is the children IMO are much more balanced than most kids. I've also known and dated a couple of girls raised by gay parents, again the same.

    One thing I can tell you also is not a single one of the children I've known raised by gay parents are gay. So the paranoia while I have sympathy for is unfounded. With the statistic's out there children are at greater risk going to church sponsored events. That just isn't the molestation factor, it's the hell fire and brimstone and guilt trips that are peddled.

    Hoplopologist is a word I made up. "Hoplon" = weapons or arms. The rest should be self explanatory.

    If my child were gay, I would want him or her to realize that as soon as possible and not suffer any angst about it. It would be fine with me. Now that the gay are about to finally achieve equality, it would be the perfect time.

    So, I guess I like the exposure the camp might provide. Heterosexuals tend to remain heterosexuals.

    I would be more concerned of an adoloscent child of mine attending a co-ed camp than one where there were some gay kids - since I am fairly confident that any collection of kids (or adults) is going to have a few who are gay (or bi) anyway. It's almost more like asking would you let your child go a camp unless everyone was openly straight - and then I would wonder how they know that and it would sound too much like a sex-commune thing if they determined sexual orientations of the kids first.

    BUT, what I DO agree with you is on this: PARENTS SHOULD STOP, PAUSE AND CONSIDER EVERYTHING - particular when their children are under someone else's control and supervision. Even if very politically incorrect ponderings.

    I openly associate with openly gay people. I can assure you that gaydom is not contagious. Unless we're talking about gay vampires.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
