Tennessee bill would require schools to report gay activity to parents
Fox news story ^

Posted on 01/31/2013 6:31:11 AM PST by Gopher Broke

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A Republican lawmaker is proposing legislation that would require schools to inform a student's parents if the child is engaging in homosexual activity.

Under the measure sponsored by Sen. Stacey Campfield of Knoxville, a school counselor, nurse or principal can inform parents if their children's "circumstances present immediate and urgent safety issues involving human sexuality."

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

The measure is part of a similar proposal, known as the "Don't Say Gay" bill, that Campfield passed in the Senate in 2011, but the companion bill failed in the House last year.

The proposal would ban the teaching of gay issues to elementary and middle school students.

Campfield says the current legislation has a House sponsor and he's optimistic about its passage.

It is a great idea, this way the parents can beat the homo out of their kids before they get too old.

The bill will be marked up in committee replacing ‘gay’ with ‘gun’ and passed without a whimper.

Given the shortened life span of homosexuals, this is a sensible health concern.

You meant to say “train”, not “beat”, I’m sure.

Hopefully they’ll get their queer spawn turned around before they do something damaging, like adopting and perverting innocent children.

Thankfully, faggots aren’t capable of reproduction by themselves alone, since homosexuality isn’t an “alternative lifestyle”, but rather, a barren sexual perversion — in other words, a moral disease.

I’d think a responsible parent would want to be notified if their child was engaging in ANY sexual activity.

It’s too bad your parents didn’t beat the stupid out of you. FR, and possibly the world, would be a better place.

Sigh.

How about notification of parents if a student brings a Koran to school?

Notification for impure thoughts?

Notification of parents for bacon / pork eating Jews? Shouldn’t the parent know about this?

Get your kids out of government schools if you really care. Throw out your TV and cut the connection to the diseased media.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Obviously this is good and necessary. But it needs to go further. Laws should be passed that would advise parents if their child is subject to homosexual teachers.

America needs to rid ourselves of the scourge that faggotry brings us. Especially in our schools.

If even I saw the humor and sarcasm in your post where them others didn’t...

That could only mean them others WANT faggotry in our schools.

Right?

(Sheesh)

You got that one right.

As I recall, informed by your posting history, pretty much anything on the liberal agenda is a “don’t care” for you.

Oh, I saw the humor, all right... wry sarcasm category. Mocking.

I also see the world view behind the humor: pro-faggot.

Campfield, from the scientificly supportable position, states the obvious. Allowing male children especially, to follow the homosexual acts of coprophilic behavior and all the “special” diseases that go with it, is not just revolting, it is a profound threat to public health.

Stacey is the guy the state media, Democrats, and Liberals in general love to hate. They’re gunning for him big time in the next election (to the point of supporting an alternate Republican to run against him in the Primary). He’s also sponsored SB0132, limiting those cash dollars welfare recipients receive in the form of Temporary Assistance to Needy Families. If the children of TANF recipients fail to maintain satisfactory progress in school, those lose benefits over and above food stamps, housing assistance, etc. http://wapp.capitol.tn.gov/apps/sponsorlist/default.aspx?ID=S070&ga=108

With all due respect, there are also straight pedophiles, preferring young girls. Just as evil.

I never use the word gay. My wife cringes every time the topic comes up because I call it what it is, “sodomite”.

Would this include activities such as membership in whatever gay clubs exists in high school these days, or strictly physical stuff like holding hands, etc....

I was going to say the same. The suicide rate is simply FRIGHTENING. It is incumbent on schools to give the parents a chance to try to prevent it.

“Lawmaker: Let’s Cut Welfare When Kids Get Bad Grades”

This is a tough one, as the ONLY kids that learn anything, with our present public schools, are the kids lucky enough to have parents that take teaching into their own hands.

The other ones are simply HOPELESS.
