Tennessee Lawmaker Warns Parents Not to Watch 'Modern Family' Because Children Might Discover Gays Exist

I mentioned earlier that a Tennessee House panel approved Stacey Campfield's heinous 'Don't Say Gay' bill which forbids discussion of homosexuality and anything but “natural human reproduction science” in public school before the ninth grade.

Joey_HensleyBut Nashville Scene made a note about the hearing beforehand that must be shared:

Before the House education subcommittee acted, chairman Joey Hensley scored bonus points by admonishing all Tennessee parents not to let their children watch “Modern Family” on television because they might discover there are homosexuals in the world.

Coincidentally, President Obama says "Modern Family" is one of the first family’s favorite shows to watch in the White House. Hensley didn’t mention that, but we’re certain that if he knew it, it would only strengthen his belief in the show’s evil influence.

“I don’t think ‘Modern Family’ is appropriate for children to watch,” Hensley said solemnly after a Nashville preacher testified children might find out about gay people by seeing the show even if teachers aren’t allowed to say gay in schools.

The state Senate adopted the “don’t say gay” bill last year but amended it first to allow only the teaching of “natural human reproduction science."

  4. Reminder that TN was the site of the Scopes trial denying evolution. It's where the KKK was founded. It's the site of a taxpayer-funded bible theme park, where Noah herds dinosaurs onto his ark....

  5. The show is like the old Amos and Andy show of decades ago. It shows stereotype slightly effeminate males raising children. Amos and Andy showed silly black stereotypes. These shows gain some poularity because they don't threaten regular white males. Yep, they can laugh at the effeminate gay guys who don't threaten their masculinity. Why not have a show that shows two manly gay guys raising children? It would bomb because straight men would feel threatened.
