[center [font "Nyala" [i "God sends two angels disguised as men into the City of Sodom where the men of Sodom threatened to rape them. The angels blind the men, and God destroys the city. For centuries, this story was interpreted as God's judgment on same-sex relations, but the only form of same-sex behavior described is a threatened gang rape."]]]

[center [font "Nyala" Some families believed you had to be taken to a pastor and brought around to the word of god. It was en-grained that being gay was terrible and you would burn in hell for it. Even going to lengths as having a fake hell pit they would drop homosexual people down in plays to scare us.]]
[center [font "Nyala" It was also said that if you are gay you are born that way but you have to turn from the sin. Those were always the words you heard coming from your parent's mouths. No matter how much you wanted them to shut up, they were always shoving the religion you loathed down your throat. No matter how hard you tried to hide, your parents found out, and the started treating you differently, it brakes your heart, and then the whispering start's when you aren't around.]]
[center [font "Nyala" Four young adults have been trying keep their secret hidden. Each of them are gay, and they knew what would happen if their parents found out. That's exactly what happened too. Now the four adults are heading to Holland Maine, to attend a Bible Camp Pastor Jennings puts on every year. He takes in the young adults, and he tells them the truth. They are going to be paired with the different sex, and that's just step one. Step two will consist of spending days alone with your roommate. Step three will consist of kissing your roommate, and then the praying starts.]]
[center [font "Nyala" As the days pass everyone pretends to be what Pastor Jennings wants, and what their parents thought. Late at night, they would sneak off and just spend time with the person they were slowly falling for. Four different personalities, all of them had one thing in common. Making their families happy. They couldn't deny it any longer. They go to Pastor Jennings, and tell him the truth. They aren't changing who they are for anyone.]]
[center [font "Nyala" Now that's out of they way, they have to figure out how to stand up to their families. What will happen when they go home early? Will their parents disown them? You'll never know unless you join, [b [i Pray The Gay Away]].]]

[#be5cf5 "You really think this will change who I am? I thought in the bible it says 'God loves all his children' as long as they love him and accept him into their life as lord and saviour. Or was that just what you have been telling me all these years when you thought I was your perfect little angel? Either way I don't see what good this will do and am only trying this out because I love you."] The redhead said as brown eyes were locked upon both her mother and father. Both of her parents happened to be staring at her as if she had two heads or something. It wasn't like they didn't know she was both angry and hurt, so she just took their looks with a grain of salt. Really it was all she could do since they were shipping her off to some Bible Camp or something in order to purify her of her sins and to set her on the right path of life. And with that thought, Queenie couldn't help a scoff.
"Queenie.. You know we are doing this because we love you. We don't want to see you burning in hell.. You are our only child and we just want to make sure we all live everlasting life together. It would kill us to be parted from you because of a choice you made. Please sweetheart try and see where we are coming from. We aren't doing this to punish you. We are trying to save you." Her mother said. Or rather began with the usual pleas that she gave whenever she decided to bad mouth this camp idea of theirs.
[#be5cf5 "Bull! If you loved me you wouldn't be making me do this. You would shove it and let me live my life. Buuut that's obviously too much to ask for. So whatever."] And with those words she pushed her chair back from the table and exited the dining hall and ran up the stairs to her room to grab her duffle bag which she had finished packing that morning. She had nothing else to say to her parents and she was done arguing with them over it.
With a final look to her father and a mumbled 'good-bye', the young woman followed her mother out to the car. She shoved her duffle into the backseat and then moodily got into the passenger's seat. Her mother began to talk to her more about thr Bible Camp. What was expected and about how much she loved her and was going to miss her. It was all words she had heard before MANY times and so it was falling on deaf ears. But to make her mother think that she was listening, Queenie did nod and give "Uh-huhs" at the proper moments and it seemed to keep her mother pleased.
After the most agonizing half hour of her life, the car pulled into the parking lot of the church and upon the steps brown eyes saw two others already there. And she couldn't help but wonder if they were being forced into this stupid program too. But she did not speak her words and FINALLY turned to look to her mother who was looking at her. Deep down she knew she didn't hate the woman. Deep down she knew the woman thought she was doing the right thing. But that didn't stop the fact that she was angry and hurt by all of this. With a tear sliding down her cheek, Queenie did lean over and give her mother a quick hug and kiss on the cheek before she got our, grabbed her duffle and ran to the steps where the others sat. Once there, Queenie sat her ass down and stared at the car as it pulled away.

[left [pic http://i.imgur.com/ILO4rzL.png]] The bright red numbers on the digital clock read 6:30am and that was not a comforting sign to the young man as he had not gotten a good night's sleep. In fact, Anthony had spent most of it thinking about the Bible Camp that he was being sent to. He spent most of the night thinking about the WHY he was being shipped off. Apparently his parents were worried about his eternal soul and the fact that he was living in sin all because he loved males in a romantic and sexual sense. The only reason his parents had even found out was they had come home early from a business trip they had been away on and had caught him sitting on the couch making-out with Tim who had been his best friend since high school. And well the day before he had told the other how he felt and they decided to give it a chance and one thing kind of led to the next.
His hand reached over and slapped the button on the clock as the shrill screaming began and broke him from the memory of why he was being shipped away. The best and worst memory of his life at that. [b [i 'Well.. I guess time to get packed and then face the parents. Joys..']] Tony found himself thinking as he pushed the quilt off of him and went to his closet, discarding his pijamas and putting on the first black shirt he found and some black skinny jeans. He ran shi fingers through his hair, got a leather jacket on and then converse as well before he grabbed a duffle and just shoved clothes, any that he could find into the thing. He honestly didn't care enough to check what all he had or to pack nicely.
As soon as he was packed and dressed, the young man made his way down the stairs and was greeted by the smell of coffee and eggs. Fantastic..it looked like his mother was TRYING to make the morning seem just like any other. And when he entered the kitchen, the woman was putting a plate down at his seat and his father looked up from the newspaper he'd been reading.
"Ready for the adventure? Oh don't give that look. We're doing this for you and you know it. You're the one who has been living in sin and this will help you to get your life in track. The RIGHT track." His father was saying as Anthony took his seat. And it was dark brown orbs that locked on the man. It took EVERYTHING he had to not mouth off. So instead he kept his mouth shut and moodily ate his breakfast, thanking whatever god there was out there when his father left for work.
[#f1be0e "Tony come on.. You're going to be late if you don't hurry and eat."] His mother said as she gave a weak smile. Truly she was more accepting but she was still in the same boat as his fsther and wanted him at least on the "right" path so they had their eternal lives together as a family.
With a sigh, Tony finished his food and washed off his plate. Once he had, the male went up the stairs to grab his bag and soon was following his mother out to the car. Not even two minutes later, the woman was driving him the ten minutes to the church where they were supposed to catch the bus. And the ride was one of dead silence.
[#f1be0e "We do love you Tony...please try to understand that this is for you.."] The woman said as she leaned over to hug him. [b "Yeah...I know...love you mom.."] He muttered as she pulled into the parking lot. And just after those words he got his bag and went to the stairs where he saw three others. Well..at least he knew he wasn't alone.

[font "Georgia" Morning wasn't a thing Gianna liked. She loved sleeping in late, and just staying in bed all day long. She wouldn't mind spending a whole day in bed, but because of the so called [i 'Gay Camp'] she was attending happened to be this morning. She groaned lightly as she looked at the clock on the bedside table. Her alarm hadn't even gone off, and she was wide awake. [#E37789 "Fuck me"] she muttered lightly. She rolled out of the bed and she stood and stretched her arms over her head. She yawned lightly, and switched the alarm off.]
[font "Georgia" She might as well get a move on right now. She didn't have much time anyway. She knew her mother would be up already making breakfast, and acting like everything was normal. Ever since her mother found out about her, she wanted nothing to do with her daughter. She sighed lightly as she found some clothes, and she carried them into the bathroom. She didn't have much more packing to do, she had her bathroom things and that was about it. She stripped out of her sleeping clothes, and tossed them into the hamper.]
[font "Georgia" She climbed into the shower and turned on the water. She leaned her head back and closed her eyes. She took a deep breath and stood there a moment. Her mind was racing, she was slightly nervous but she knew her parents would think she was a strong girl. They knew this camp would make her straight, but she knew it wouldn't. She didn't want to like men. Men were horrible creatures in her eyes. Women were more gentle, and caring. She smirked lightly wondering how her parents would react to her bringing home a woman.]
[font "Georgia" She shook her head lightly and hurried and showered. She knew her mother would be coming to check up on her, and wondering what was taking her so long. She sighed lightly as she finished washing her hair and body, and she shut off the water. She climbed out, wrapped a towel around her body and wiped the mirror off. She looked at herself in the mirror and cocked her head to the side. Was she really doing this to herself? She bit the inside of her cheek wishing she didn't have to do this.]
[font "Georgia" She shook her head, and got dressed. She dried her hair, and then brushed it out. She dried off her shampoo and body wash and put them into a gallon sized bag. She carried them into her room and put them in her bag. That's when her mother knocked on the door. [b "Breakfast is ready, and then we will take you to the church"] she said lightly. Gianna looked up towards her mother and nodded lightly. [#E37789 "I'll be down in a moment"] she said. Her mother nodded and walked out of the room. Gianna stood there a moment and rolled her eyes.]
[font "Georgia" She bit the inside of her cheek as she finished packing up her things. She zipped up the bag and then picked it up. She slid her feet into her sneakers and was ready to go. She took one last look around her room, and knew this was the last time she would see it. If she had her way, she won't be coming back. No one knew her plans, and she was glad about that. She shook her head and walked out of the room. She slipped into the kitchen, dropped her bag and sat in a chair.]
[font "Georgia" It was just her mother in the room, and she cocked her head slightly. [#E37789 "Where's daddy?"] she asked. [b "He's not coming with this morning. He had to go into the office to get some work done"] said her mother without looking at her. Gianna just rolled her eyes, and knew that had been an excuse for not seeing her off. She reached for a plate and filled it up with the food her mother had made. She dug right in, and pretty soon she was full.]
[font "Georgia" [b "Alright Gianna, it's time to go"] her mother said lightly. Gianna nodded and took her plate to the sink. She rinsed it off, and put it into the dishwasher. She then picked up her bag and the two walked out of the house together. Gianna slid into the back seat of the car and put on her seat belt. She looked out the window as her mother sighed and started the car. She pulled out of the driveway and headed into town. The drive was silent, and it was the way Gianna liked it. She didn't have to say anything.]
[font "Georgia" When her mother pulled into the parking lot, and stopped the car Gianna was already out of the car with her bag in hand. She didn't even say goodbye, she walked over to the front steps and sat down. She was the first to arrive, and she liked that. She sat down, and looked around. The day was perfect and she wondered who the other's were. She cocked her head slightly to the side, and watched as her mother drove off. She rolled her eyes and looked towards the street, waiting for the other's to arrive.]

[font "Georgia" Everything was running in slow motion. The pain was becoming bearable, but everyday that passed make Oakland realize he wasn't enough for anyone. He didn't even care that his parents hated him. He was the oldest in the family, and he was supposed to be the one his brother's looked up to. His mother on the other hand didn't want that, she was scared that he would make them like the same sex as well. A bitter laugh passed though his lips as he looked himself in the mirror. That's when there was a knock on the door.]
[font "Georgia" [#A2C4CF "Come on in"] he called. His door slowly opened, and in walked one of his brothers. [i "Oak, you okay? You seemed kind of distant this morning at breakfast"] Tyler said. Oakland just stood there and shrugged lightly. What was he supposed to say? He didn't even know how to approach this kind of subject. He let the question hang in the air a moment, and then he turned his back and ran a hand over his face. He didn't know what to say, and he sure as hell couldn't keep his mouth shut any longer. He sighed a bit.]
[font "Georgia" [#A2C4CF "Ty, I don't know how to say this, and I know you'll hate me cause of it. You know how mom and dad said I'm going away to summer camp? That's a lie. The camp I'm going too, is supposed to make me straight. That's right, I'm gay"]]
[font "Georgia" [i "Oak, I don't care what your sexuality is. If mom and dad really think this camp is going to work, they have another thing coming. They can't just make their child straight"]]
[font "Georgia" [#A2C4CF "I know they can't, but I just wanted you to know that's where I was going"]]
[font "Georgia" [i "Thank you for telling me. You'll write to Luke and I right? We would both want to know how your summer camp is going"] he said with a smile. Oakland nodded lightly, and the two hugged. That's when the sound of his mother clearing her throat brought them apart. [b "It's time to go Oakland, you don't want to be late"] she said lightly. Oakland nodded lightly, and he looked towards Tyler, and they smiled and waved goodbye.]
[font "Georgia" Oakland didn't know what else to say. He was at a loss for words at the moment, and right now he didn't really care. He wanted to get this so called camp over and done with. He followed his mother out to the car, and he slid inside. [b "You know I'm doing this because I love you right? Your father agrees it's for the best"] she said softly as she turned to face her son. The male looked at her, and pure hatred was seen in his eyes. [#A2C4CF "I don't care if it's for the best, I hate you"] he muttered.]
[font "Georgia" [#A2C4CF "If you and dad cared, you wouldn't be making do something I didn't want to do. But I know you would have kicked me out, and I have to be there for Ty and Luke. They need me, so I'm going to this bloody camp just to make you happy. Just don't expect me to call and write to you"] he said as he turned his head and looked out the window. The words leaving his mouth were hurtful and he knew they were. He just didn't care right now.]
[font "Georgia" [b "I know you think it's wrong of us, but we do love you. We just don't want you taking the wrong road in life. I have a letter for you though, I want you to read it when you get settled into your camp"] she said as she handed him a letter. Oakland took it, and shoved it into his pants pocket. He looked out the window and didn't even say anything else. What was he supposed to say anyway? As he was looking out the window, he saw the church coming into view.]
[font "Georgia" When his mother stopped the car, he grabbed his bag and jumped out of the car. [b "I love you Oakland! Remember that"] she called. The male didn't even say a word back. He was too pissed and hurt to do so. He walked over to the church steps, and saw a woman sitting there. He nodded lightly as he plopped down beside her. He placed his bag onto the step between his legs, and then watched as his mother waved and left. He rolled his eyes, leaned back and waited. The silence was perfect, and he hoped it would last.]
