While Campfield and his allies could not find an imaginary gay agenda to attack, they did add further clarity to the definition “stupid.”
Campfield, a noted homophobe, is back this year with a new anti-gay law for the schools. Campfield emphasized that his legislative focus on homosexuality comes from his belief that it is a health and safety danger.
Campfield’s new efforts are to encourage counseling by school officials of anyone that they suspect of being gay. The counseling sounds a lot like gay conversion efforts. Then, just to add a bit more insult to a young person’s developing sexuality, the school would be required to notify the parents that their child is gay.
Campfield’s bill, known as the “Classroom Protection Act,” also contains similar language to last year’s bill. It forbids teaching in K-8 that is “inconsistent with natural human reproduction…as inappropriate.” This year, Campfield’s bill adds that nothing in it is meant to actually encourage the teaching of sex to kids that age anyway.
