Tenn. State Sen. Stacey Campfield responded to an email sent to him by a pro-gay voter who opposed a bill he reintroduced to the Tennessee General Assembly. He spoke with TMZ Live Feb. 1 and said gays are "the biggest bullies in the world."
The interview was in reference to a bill he sent prohibiting teachers from discussing gays in classrooms from kindergarten up to eighth grade.
A man who opposed the Senator's controversial views got a reaction from Sen. Campfield when he told him it sounded like he had "deep anger issues" and needed "therapy."
The Senator went on to say in the TMZ Live interview that comparing the gay rights movement to African-Americans civil rights movement is "insulting to the civil rights movement of the black people."
The Tennessee Senator isn't keen on homosexuality being a topic in the education system -- at least until high school.
This was the Senator's closing statement in his TMZ interview:
"We don't wanna hear about it every day ... quit trying to ram it down everybody's throats ... and quit pushing it on everyone. Just leave us alone."
The Senator said he's willing to hear out the concerned citizen if he won't insult him and controls his "anger issues."
