TN State Senator

Homosexuality Is Dangerous

Tennessee State Senator Stacey Campfield (R-Knoxville) has a message to the gay community -- stop ramming the gay agenda "down everybody's throats" and leave the straight people alone!!!

Sen. Campfield just called in to "TMZ Live" to talk about the strongly-worded email he sent to a pro-gay voter ... who had objected to a bill Campfield recently reintroduced to the Tennessee General Assembly.

During the call, Campfield insists he doesn't hate gay people -- he just doesn't believe students from kindergarten through 8th grade should discuss ANYTHING gay related.

Among the highlights:
-- Campfield says the people in the gay rights community are "the biggest bullies in the world."

-- Campfield says comparing the gay rights movement to the African American civil rights movement is "insulting to the civil rights movement of the black people."

-- Campfield says he wishes the gay community would just leave the straight people alone ... saying, "We don't wanna hear about it every day ... quit trying to ram it down everybody's throats ... and quit pushing it on everyone. Just leave us alone."

Some people in the newsroom disagreed with the State Senator's views ... check out the video.

Campfield says he wishes the gay community would just leave the straight people alone. I think he has that way wrong. Here is a news flash, Gay people want to leave the straights to leave them alone. The straights won't leave the gays alone. They are way to worried about about their personal lives and should focus on their own relationships.

Hey Campy, ALL taxpaying citizens deserve ALL the same rights anything less is just pure DISCRIMINATION.
Maybe gay people are sick of all the straight sexuality and media shoved at them.

Campoy is an ignorant little biggot

Every homophobic guy I have ever run into during my life, has turned out to be gay and just denying and hiding it. I'm strait, if this is obvious to me, it should be to everyone else, you wait, someones going to pop up with a story about this guy.

I am sick of the straight people ramming their lives and beliefs down my throat. I am my own person with my own beliefs and this earth is just as much mine as theirs. Nobody owns it.

I've never once in my life considered the gay community bullies me--that's ridiculous. I do, however, consider men like this loser to be a bully.
