This is a straight camp to send gay kids to.


Holy fucking shit.

That's not even subtle, that's textbook cult talk.

This has to be one of the most sickening things I've ever read! To think that these things exist in our country..!

Do they have accountabilibuddies and daily suicides, too?

Man Called True

A maximum-security prison would reject this as being inhumane. That this is being done to children whose only crime is not fitting a ruler-narrow worldview of what is considered proper conduct is obscene.

A fair number of 1-10 all but constitute 11, anyway...

Let the crafters of the camp suffer excoriation absolute for this corruption...

Want your kids to hate you forever? Send them to this camp.

8/18/2009 6:54:30 PM



Close this place down, please.

It's pure abuse.

I'm appalled that anything like this exists.

I'm amazed that anyone would pay money to send their kid to this.

I'm hopeful that the people who run this "camp" will get their asses sued off.

Um, how do we know about this, considering rules 3 and 4? It's a disgusting place, but I really don't want to think about the punishment that will be imposed on whoever blogged about it....

Where is this camp? Guantanamo? If they break the rules, do they get waterboarded or kept naked and awake for four days straight or threatened with dogs?

Reminds me of the 80's when they equated homosexuality with "cultism" and then parents paid people to rape their kids to "cure" them of homosexuality.

Horrible.

They should have would-be parents take lie detector tests and those not willing to go through treating-everyone-like-humans therapy should be forcefully sterilized.

Bach non Christian?!?!? These people must work hard to stay this stupid.

7. Kids are not allowed outside of a small geographic area within Memphis, even if accompanied by parents, without prior written authorization

This. They're with their parents. If the parents want to, or if they get cold feet (which they fucking should) they can take the goddamn kid wherever they please. What is this written authorization shit.

8. Kids are not allowed to listen to any music that is not explicitly Christian (Bach and Beethoven are specifically forbidden as being non-Christian)

Bach? C'mon, you can't ban Bach! That's like... blasphemy! D:

Gospel of John, chapter 11, verse 35:

"Jesus wept"


How the fuck is this not child abuse? I want to see someone prosecuted for putting children through this. Parents, camp management, anyone responsible in any way for any child being in this camp.

8/18/2009 7:16:37 PM



Straight Camp? Moar like Rape Camp, amirite?

Wow... just wow. Reading that makes me want to cry. And go hug my mother for being so understanding when both my brother and I came out.

WELL, I foresee a massive class-action lawsuit here in 3...2...1....

What is this, "How to Run a Cult Step by Step"?

Seriously, every one of those are typical cult tactics. Particularly the isolation from friends and family, dictating how the person's day is to be spent, deciding how the person is to behave and so on are all well known to be used by cults.

Do the kids have to keep track of their accountabilibuddies?

8/18/2009 8:04:27 PM

GigaGuess

I'd point by point this, but what's the point? It all boils down to the fact that it's flat out cult indoctrination.

8/18/2009 8:17:48 PM



Sounds about as fun as Guantanamo, poor kids :o(

Bach was probably the most Christian of all the great composers.

Musicology fail.
