    It isn't openly gay people I don't trust it is these kinds:

    An anti-gay pastor in New Orleans who once called masturbation "immoral" was arrested recently for doing just that at a public park.
    Grant Storms, who gained notoriety for using a bullhorn to protest an annual gay festival in Louisiana, was busted Friday after two women allegedly saw him servicing himself in his van, the Times-Picayune newspaper reported.

    A woman who parked next to Storms' vehicle at Lafreniere Park in Metairie was taking her children out of her car when she allegedly witnessed the so-called "Christian patriot" seated behind the wheel with "his zipper down," police said on Monday.
    She saw him performing the sex act, then told another woman at the park, who approached his van in order to confirm the accusation, authorities said. The 53-year-old pastor allegedly tried to cover himself when he noticed her looking at him.
    The women reported Storms to a park officer, who then detained him until police arrived.
    Storms initially claimed he was simply urinating into a bottle, but later admitted to pleasuring himself, WDSU 6 News reported. Although there were children in the park at the time of the incident, police did not believe it was related to the pastor's actions.

    "I believe that there was some people in the park, but I'm not sure if the presence of the children had a direct correlation to the incident," sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Larry Dyess told WWL news radio.
    Storms has regularly used signs and a bullhorn to protest Southern Decadence, a three-day gay festival in the French Quarter held every year around Labor Day, for nearly a decade. He often referred to the event as "depraved."

    The ones I dont trust are the ones who are most ardent in being anti gay.

    or, maybe on a teleprompter, it would make sense.

    The American Psychological Association has been unable to reach that conclusion:

    Wiki: Environment and sexual orientation

    (from link, emphasis added):





    The sexual orientation of the first generation of children with homosexual adoptive parents will provide strongly suggestive evidence, and I might yield to the geneticist side of the argument if over 80% of them turn out to be heterosexual.

    However, I would still prefer to send my children to a camp catering to heterosexuals only.
    From your link:

    Environment and sexual orientation is research into possible environmental influences on the development of human sexual orientation. Some researchers distinguish environmental influences from hormonal influences,[1] while others include biological influences such as prenatal hormones as part of environmental influences.[2]
    According to several studies, each older brother increases a man's odds of developing a homosexual orientation by 28%–48%. Most researchers attribute this to prenatal environmental factors, such as prenatal hormones.[17][18][19][20] McConaghy (2006) found no relationship between the strength of the effect and degree of homosexual feelings, suggesting the influence of fraternal birth order was not due to a biological, but a social process.[21]
    So, send the kid to camp, but leave the prenatal hormones home.

    In reality, I'd say that there is no such thing.....I doubt if any camp asks this very personal question, and if they tried, few would "tell the embarassing truth."..
