"Campfield told reporters on Wednesday that he considers the "act of homosexuality" to be dangerous to a child's health and safety."

1. Make gay kids feel bad.

2. Gay kids shoot up schools.

3. Use as ammo to try to lynch all gays.

4. ?

Wouldn't this be a state (or even better, a local government) issue? Even then I think you'd want it to be something that school districts can decide for themselves. Homosexual intercourse involves more potential health problems for guys, but this is totally out of the rightful realm of Washington. I'm pretty sure the Constitution doesn't allow them to mandate the way school counselor's in public schools interact with parents and students. Gotta love big government for trying though, haha.

Alright, I realized the article was from a local news site, but they never actually specified it was a state legislation. That means it's dumb, but not unconstitutional.

It's not in the states interest to notify parents of their childs homosexuality. Not only that but it specifically singles out a group of persons out for discriminatory practices. unless you found a reason why its not unconstitutional

Because a proposal by one guy is a reflection on the whole party. You need to go read some of the f***ing stupid proposals that are put forth by law makers. Very few ever make it out of committee.

I'm just saying, it's not a right given over to the federal government so it is very likely that the Tennesee state constitution allows them too (especially if they are claiming health risks, and only wanting to notify parents, not do anything more). I personally think it's absurd and none of the government's business. Certainly, even given the health risks I think the counselor should be able to decide on a case by case basis of whether parents needed notification in some fashion. I just hate the idea of some absolute and frankly pointless law being put in place where the last thing this country needs is more legislation and government involvement. Yes they are public schools, but they should be run as much as possible at a local level and not by people in the state or national capital.

I'm just going to say both parties are doomed if the crazies become their faces.

I was on a political thread on Reddit a few weeks ago and some of the more vocal liberals in it were calling meth a "soft drug" and legalizing it would stop all gang violence.

As a Republican myself, I'm embarrased by what some of the people in the party say, but the real logic lies with the moderates.

WiiCubeM1

there is nothing illogical about legalizing meth.

Repbulicans believe that if something is legal, that consumption will rise drastically. The evidence shows that this isn't the case. In fact since the repeal of prohibition, drinking has declined.

There's very few pros on keeping drugs illegal and many, many cons for doing so.

It is a proposal in a State House of Representatives. I don't see how this is somehow a reflection on the whole republican party?

A)I never said it did
B) an earlier bill of 2011 was passed by the TN Senate. Again, I make no gurantees that this bill will pass either the house or the senate.

Update: Story

A constituent E-mailed Mr. Campfield the following:

Senator Campfield,
I am writing to you today as a mother, active citizen and born & raised Tennessean. You are an embarrassment to our great state. Folks all over the country and here in Tennessee are looking at the bills that you are proposing in shock. They are the most ignorant and morally lacking legislation that could be proposed this year. It is clear that you are targeting homosexuals and low income families(1) with hogwash legislation. You need to search your heart, your values and your Christianity to find a better way to represent us as a whole. We will do everything in our power to make sure that you are not here in 2014. There are numerous grass roots parties that are making their voices heard.

And this is his response:

You seem to have some serious, deep anger issues. Have you ever thought about therapy? I hear they are doing some wonderful thing with medications these days.

Yours in service,

Sen. Stacey Campfield

:lol:

When asked about the E-mail, he replied:

"I take responsibility for everything that comes out of my office. There is a very loud, very vocal two percent of the community, more or less the homosexual activist community who likes to threaten, intimidates, insult, belittle people. You know what I'm not going to put up with it. That's not my job. I'm not here to be somebody's piñata," said Campfield.


(1) - His assult on low-income families is from piece of legistlation where he proposes that if a person is recieving assistance and their kids don't make a certain grade in school, that assistance will be cut off.
