Sen. Campfield has been cloaked in controversy ever since he reintroduced the “Classroom Protection Act” to the Tennessee General Assembly this week … also known as the “Don’t Say Gay” bill.

The bill forbids teachers from discussing anything gay-related from kindergarten through 8th grade … even banning the word “gay” itself from classroom discussion. The bill also has a provision requiring teachers to out potentially gay students to their parents.

Sen. Campfield has been receiving all sorts of letters criticizing his support for the bill … including an email from one concerned Tennessean who wrote:

I am appalled at your thought of [the bill] and how it will protect children. I [used] to be proud to call Tennessee my home but after this I am not so sure. Your mind set is pathetic as well as this bill. I encourage you to change your mind or you will make a bunch of people very upset. Imagine, if you have kids and one was gay, how this bill would affect them and you.

To the citizen’s surprise, he got an email back a short time later from the Senator himself saying:
