Tennessee State Senator Stacey Campfield has made anti-gay efforts his personal crusade. Campfield is particularly concerned about anyone mentioning homosexuality in the schools. In his own take of “What will the children think?,” Campfield introduced bills in the Tennessee legislature the last two years seeking to prevent any mention of homosexuality up to the eighth grade. This year’s bill is different. It would require counseling and parental notification of any student determined to be gay.
Stephen Colbert sums up Campfield’s anti-gay positions better than I can. Here’s a video from his show. The first four minutes are about Campfield.
