Tennessee State Senator Stacey Campfield defended legislation that prohibits teachers from discussing homosexuality and even saying the word “gay” in kindergarten through eighth-grade classrooms during an interview with Alan Colmes on Monday. The bill has come to be known by its critics as the “don’t say gay” bill.

Campfield claims that teachers are discussing homosexuality in classrooms around his state, but the Board of Education said it was not aware of any such incidents.

Watch video from Alan Colmes’ Liberaland, aired April 25th, 2011.
