I don’t’ really know how to comment without offending anyone, but I can say that I witnessed similar “retreats” in my time with the Catholic church (to a lesser degree), and it really screws people up for life about sex, identity, and forming an independent opinion.

That’s just sickening. Sounds like jail, not boarding school.

That is absolutely horrible!!!! I think there needs to be more awareness about this kind of thing happening to kids. I have never heard of this before. Sounds like a place where the brainwash america’s youth. SICK. This kind of abuse is so destructive. From first look at their website it looks to be a camp for troubled kids, not a camp for persecution for religous conformity. The people who run this place need a psych evaluation. This is truly upsetting.

I’m saddened and appalled this could still happen today. Didn’t society learn its lesson from the Residential Schools of 100 years ago and the damage it caused?

That is crazy and really child abuse I think even if your child is misbehaving and needs to be sent to a school you have to be really careful about where that is. I also think sending someone away for their lack of relgious belief or their sexual orentation is nuts also!

Woah!! This is sickening. Being sent away because you are gay, that poor kid.

Although, where did you get the link to that second school? I have read the website and see no religious affiliation anywhere. Are you sure that is one of the schools in question? If not, is it responsible to put it on a post that will come up every time someone google searches the school’s name?

Wait, you mean super religious people aren’t doing the actual Christian thing and respecting other people’s beliefs? Shocking! 😉

am i the only one that thought a bunch of confused young people (confused only because they are young and being battered to conform) in the one place thinking they might be gay is only going to lead to them experimenting at some point with each other

@Miss Orchard:  Again, people exspect US to be respectful when other people spew hate just as venamous?

As a Christian, this is SICK and not something true Christ-Followers would condone.

My sister was invited to by friends to their church that runs a summer camp that “fixes” gay teens. She said in the youth group meeting, they sat in front of a screen that flashed phrases, and they had to repeat those phrases… for thirty minutes.

That’s awful, absolutly dispicable. I think most people would agree that it’s an exteremly radical position, regardless of your opinion on Christianity. That said this a wedding board and while the topic is surely important, I’m concerned the discussion and some comments might lead to an attack on religion, which many people just planning a wedding might find also offensive.
