Let's send Johnny to Conversion Camp

Yes it is summer time, tens of thousands of children in North America will be attending a christian camp this summer. MSNBC's Ron Reagan has this to say in an article entitled "Conversion Camps?"

"Summer’s here, meaning thousands of kids are heading off to camp and participating in a host of familiar activities: hiking, canoeing, archery, re-programming their sexual orientation. Don’t you remember that from your summers at camp? ...

...After all, if certain people are simply born gay, it wouldn’t be fair to persecute them. So, to stave off this uncomfortable reality, they induce in vulnerable teens the same self-loathing that so obviously troubles men like Reverend Smid."
