‘The Act Of Homosexuality Is Very Dangerous’ Says ‘Don’t Say Gay’ Bill Author

Stacey Campfield, the Republican state senator who authored Tennessee’s infamous “Don’t Say Gay” bill that, after two years of debate, ultimately failed in 2011, has re-introduced the bill in a different form, one which will, by law, demand that LGBTQ youth who discuss homosexuality with school officials will be outed to their parents.

“I can’t speak from personal experience, but being homosexual in and of itself is not deadly or dangerous. The act of homosexuality is very dangerous,” Campfield told Nashville Public Radio, as his reasoning for pushing the extremely dangerous legislation.

Noting that Sen. Campfield “cites the higher rates of HIV infection among gay men,” NPR adds:

The new “don’t say gay” proposal never uses the words homosexual or gay, instead referencing behavior “inconsistent with natural human reproduction.”

Campfield actually has little knowledge about HIV/AIDS.

Stacey Campfield has said repeatedly that it is “virtually impossible” to contract  HIV/AIDS through heterosexual sex, and (falsely) has said that ”most people realize that AIDS came from the homosexual community — it was one guy screwing a monkey, if I recall correctly, and then having sex with men. It was an airline pilot, if I recall….”

Campfield has also claimed:

[Homosexuals] do not naturally reproduce. It has not been proven that it is nature. It happens in nature, but so does beastiality That does not make it right or something we should be teaching in school.

And despite Tennessee’s sadly numerous anti-gay bullying teen suicides, Senator Campfield has said, “bullying thing is the biggest lark out there.”

Earlier this month, Sen. Campfield introduced a bill to cut welfare to families if their children don’t perform well in school, calling it a step toward “breaking the cycle of poverty.” And last year, Campfield’s bill requiring drug testing — presumably, urine tests — for welfare recipients passed in the Senate by a 24-9 margin.

The only thing dangerous is the sensationalist gossip he spouts when he doesn't know what he is talking about to any degree of honesty. The danger where LGBT is concerned is not from being LGBT itself. It's from haters, bigots, and individuals trying to legalize their morality and censor what they don't like.

I was married once over 30 years ago ( My finding Myself stage in life ) and I have two Daughters & four Grandchildren. I knew from an early age that I was gay, etc, like many peoples stories. My children have been taught from an early age that there are all kinds of diversity in this world and that They need to appreciate the individual uniqueness. Now, My Daughters, Are loving, caring, compassionate, open minded Women. It's un- comprehensible to Me that these people really believe They are doing what is in Their children's best interest by teaching then to hate other people; However, It " Is " in a child's best interest to give Them all the " Correct " information and allow Them to make Their own choices as They become Adults. I quiet often think to Myself….Will these same kind of people be informed when one of their own children come to Them one day and tell Then They are gay !? Or will They reject Their own child !? Sad…………….
