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.

Truth    

The Senator has a valid point.:
WE need to educate our kids with academics and NOT with explanations why a 6 foot tall man who weighs 230 lbs talks and walks like their mother not to mention why Women act butch and dress up like a man. It's confusing enough to society so why bring that confusion on the young ones.

Gays can be bullies just as heterosexuals can be, but it's a far stretch and inaccurate to say gay people are the biggest bullies.

I submit a new item of business for the homosexual agenda: finding this guy on a gay hookup site and publishing pictures of him sucking a lollipop with a 4"-wide dildo up his arse.

In a way I agree
There a LOT of important problems facing us today
But somehow the media magnifying glass does sometimes seem to be overly focused on the gay agenda (is it an aganda?)

I admit, it bugs me more that kids in America go to bed hungry or that people are losing their homes while the bailout people throw themselves around the world parties while dancing to the bank with the bonuses they gave themselves with bailout money

And while I do believe gay folks should be able to marry


Can't we fix some of the other problems also

He wants the gay community to stop ramming their agenda down the throats of straight people? Well, I want the men on Capitol Hill to stop ramming their agenda down my throat with regards to what I, as a woman, can and cannot do with my own body, or what medical treatment I should or shouldn't be allowed to get simply because I'm a woman!

My only wish for people like this is that they live long enough to see how far on the wrong side of history they are.
