The legislation, Senate Bill 49, would make it illegal for teachers to discuss any sexual orientation or behavior other than heterosexuality before the ninth grade. The bill has come to be known by its critics as the “don’t say gay” bill.
The bill’s sponsor, Republican State Senator Sen. Stacey Campfield, said he was not homophobic….
“You teach about the Civil Rights Movement,” the state senator was asked. “Why not teach about the Gay Rights Movement?”
“Because they’re different types of movements,” Campfield responded. “If I want to talk about the bestiality movement, do you think we should be teaching that?”
I’d venture a guess that he has a few skeletons in his closet, and they are all likely singing show tunes.
