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.

he has quite a bit of hate towards gays. i've seen that before, it's usually because someone related to him, or possibly himself if a closet gay, i'm not saying he is but alot of hate. more states are legalizing same sex marriage, whats wrong with explainig to little tommy why jimmy has 2 moms. it's all around us. also, the bully thing.....you kidding me?

It's too bad Harvey couldn't have spent more time on that phone interview. It seemed like the Senator was totally up for a debate - he was begging to finish talking with the blonde guy in the newsroom. Did anyone else notice the Senator almost lost it and nearly went into a rage?


At least Harvey was able to get him to say it was the 'unnatural anal sex' that he had a problem with. Harvey won that round by pointing out many heterosexuals practice that too - especially in Africa where the number of Aids cases are very high. Too bad he didn't think to say that education would help lower that - the very thing the Senator is fighting to NOT have.


I get that Harvey had to show restraint and be professional, but I wish he could have ended the interview by saying, "Senator, F.U.C.K. you very much for your time, it was a pleasure." CLICK.

God created Adam and Eve, they had two sons, Cain and Abel. Gee, I wonder where the human race came from with one husband, two sons on one woman. Hey Bible thumpers, even if Adam and Eve had 25 kids, how do you think procreation continued? MEH!!!!

We'll stop shoving the gay agenda down your throat when you stop shoving the religious agenda down ours.

He is right about the gay agends. Gay groups are actually lobbying HOllywqood to shove homosexuality down everyone's throats. They're also heavily lobbying corporations to either endorse gay issues or they threaten to publicly attack them like they did Chick-Fil-A after that company refued to play along.

None of this would even be an issue if we did the right thing and got rid of the public schools system.
A failed experiment.
Kids do not belong sitting down all day in classrooms, forced to listened to someone stand in front of them yapping, like a teacher.
It's completely unnatural on many levels:
1) Forcing a 5 year old away from their mother and throwing them into a "public school" with several new mothers called "teachers"
2) Forcing mothers to separate from their little children
3) Forcing children to go completely against their natural daily energies and to sit all day long....for 18 years....in classrooms
4) destroying the natural bonds between children and parents by literally separating them all day long, five days a week for 18 years (and people wonder why 60% of the population ends up in therapy offices when they become adults)
Public schools were only created to be babysitting facilities, so the mothers would go out and work and generate tax rev and build up the tax base...so the politicians and bureaucrats and ultra-wealthy could pinch off of it and get richer
Mothers don't even raise their children anymore, public school teachers do, literally.
Public schools and the whole system goes against everything natural in childhood and family life.

I think it would be great if they got Sean Hannity on the phone on this issue. Sean would let them have there say, and then, he would tear them up!

I wouldn't have a problem if we eliminated all sex ed through grade 8. To me, it's all or nothing. Whenever we teach sex ed (and let's face it -- parents abandoned this role to schools long ago), just make sure we teach everything. With the age that some children are having children (yes, Tennessee I am looking at you), I think high school might be a bit too late.

Stupid people are the dangerous ones. This looks like another case of "stop being the stupid party"
