    Unlike you Navy....I don't pretend to be a "devout catholic" and I don't criticize everyone else for their moral indiscretions. You on the otherhand make claims all the time that expose your hypocrisy. For instance...you were talking about gays having a 100 sex partners in their lives...yet not that long ago you were on this same site talking about "Sowing your wild oats" at whorehouses all over the place when you were in the navy.
    The point being NP....it rings very shallow and very hypocritical for you to cast judgement and condemn others for the very behavior that you have tucked away in your closet.

    The Catholic Church is out of touch with so many people it is an easy target.

    I assume that as a rabid Catholic you support the Churches opposition to capital punishment, eh?

    I do not believe you are correct, and even if you were I would still prefer an exclusively
    heterosexual camp for my son just to give him a break from the surrounding overwhelmingly
    bisexual environment.

    Science is not sufficiently advanced to disentangle the roles of environment and genetics
    in the formation of sexual preference.

    However, the ancient Greco-Roman world appears to have been much more heavily bisexual
    than ours as the apparent examples of prominent men from Solon to Hadrian attest. Environment
    rather than genetic drift or mutation seems more likley to have been the cause of that time's
    differing sexual conditions. My own guess, repeat guess, is that about 40-50% of all people are
    exclusively and imperviously heterosexual by nature, about 40-50% are at least potentially bisexual,
    and 5-10% are exclusively homosexual.

    I would want to do what I could to increase the odds in favor of exclusive heterosexual development
    of my children, and that rules out voluntary immersion in a non-heterosexual camp setting.

    You know I'm perfectly comfortable with my sexuality and don't in anyway feel "threatened" by gay's. But I guess those who are insecure about their leanings do. Hell I've been into a number of gay dance clubs, I've had a blast not to mention when they know I'm straight I do not get hit on. Hell seriously if I do it's a complement ya know, but seriously I feel more comfortable around gays that I would and evangelical group, gays are more honest.

    Being around gay people does not make one gay, nor is being around straight people going to make a gay person straight, that is just how the world works. Also, for children, there is no such thing as a heterosexual, or homosexual camp, so there might be a gay kid there, doesn't mean they are going to be doing anything differently. Just makes no sense, and your views on this stem from ignorance.

    One of the kids or the camp personnel? My boy is 7. I don't see him having to worry about a gay 7 year old there with him. If another kid is an "open liar" (nice fallacy there), then I'll tell my boy to avoid him. However, if one of the adults there is a habitual liar ie he is a bad example for my son, yeah, I'm keeping him at home just the same.

    So which is better, a person who is honest about their sexual preference, or a person who lies about their sexual preference?
