via Talk Left: Mike Ditto writes about a brainwashing summer camp for gay kids in Tennessee. This 16 year old attendee is writing a blog from the camp, and he's none too pleased. He says his parents lied to him and it's worse than boot camp. Go read, before they make him take it down.


Here's a video link from WMCTV news story link where protests are being held Love and Action camp.

Can you help us out?
