    “Just because it’s failed 3 times, that DOESN’T mean it’ll fail this time!” = Typical Conservative Thinking.

  2. What a disgusting and hateful bill. The only “potential threats” to the children are these hateful adults who go out of their way to fail to provide a comfortable and safe learning environment, such as Mr Ragan.

  3. I fail to see the link between gay teenagers and violent teenagers, the latest suggested amendments sound more like a way to save face by having an equally titled bill pass.

    Obviously, violence in students should be monitored and programs offered to discover the root and offer a resolution to the roblem

  4. Campfield and his fellow conservatives should give up and move to Russia. Who ever woudl have thought it in the Cold War days, but nowadays Russia is the natural home for their kind. The Russians hate the gays, you can be fired if you reveal your sexual orientation and it’s illegal to say anything positive about gay people. The more you earn, the less tax you pay (as Gerard Depardieu discovered), the rich never even have to see the poor, and attitudes to women remain medieval.

  5. “It’s about school safety,” Mr Ragan said. I think we know the real danger to schools here, Mr Ragan!

  6. I find it difficult to convey how much I dislike Campfield. I don’t think this bill would ever have stood up to a legal challenge anyway.

  7. Isn’t it sad. Without religiously-inspired homophobia, this wouldn’t even be an issue. Isn’t a child’s happiness the most important issue of all? If people weren’t so barinwashed over the religious notion that ‘homosexuality = bad’, who would give a crap WHAT sexuality their kid was? Please – people – just STOP judging anyone on who they love. OK? It should be NO-ONE’S business OR an issue. Live and let live and stop being so obsessed over what people do with their genitals.

  8. Gay gay gay gaygaygay. Gay gay GAY!

    If these people who, it says, want to improve safety in school, perhaps they should look at bullying – which is a very serious problem in our school system, and has been for years. I know, I was bullied when I was a lad. I learned to hide my real self, and keep away from them, but one should not have to hide his/her true identity just to keep from being beaten every day, or called nasty names.

    Surprising amoung of good news out of Tennessee: *Three* anti-gay bills are struggling or dead (for now anyway). More at: http://www.youthallies.com/anti-gay-bills-struggling-tennessee/

  11. Stacey Camp – field seems to have some mental health problems. But a wonderful drag name it is.

    Does Mr. Ragan mean to say by changing the wording in his bill that Homosexuals or LGBT are Violently Dangerous. If he believes this he really needs some education oh hate mongering and being a bully.
