    of course there would be no logical, educated or non-bigoted reason not to with the info you provided.
    Why on gods earth would it matter if there were openly gay members there?

    X Factor scratches his noggin, "Hoplopologist is a word I made up."

    My presumption is you combined "hoplologist" with "apologist" suggesting you apologize for weapons. This is inconsistent with labeling yourself "leaning conservative" and more consistent with Obama's "world apology tour". Are you a closet Obama voter?

    I would rather send my son to a camp with girls.

    I think the percentage of openly gay campers would probably be very small compared to the number of straight campers. You can't "catch the gay". It's not contagious. Most likely the kids are there to go camping and not to seduce another kid. I might have more concerns sending my kid to Jesus Camp where the chances are just as good that the councelors might be closet queens praying ( no pun intended) on unsuspecting kids.

    Your presumption is close enough. The term "apologist" is widely misunderstood, though, so much so that some intend or take offense by the term. It doesn't mean to apologize for (which implies there is some wrong to be apologized for), it's defined as "one who speaks or writes in defense of someone or something".

    I am squarely in the conservative camp (despite what you might see from the OP).

    If you hadn't intended the pun, you would have spelled it "preying".

    I would advise my son against going if the openly-gay membership were imposed by a decree of authorities (violation of the freedom of association). If it is a decision made by the boy scout organization itself - what's the problem?
