Ramsey: ‘Some Things Don’t Need to Be Public’

Asked about a GOP state senator’s bill to require public school employees to inform a student’s parents if alerted the child is possibly engaging in homosexual activity, Tennessee Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey sided with those who say it’s a government intrusion into family matters.
This from TNReport:
“There are some things that should be left inside the family and some things don’t need to be in public,” Ramsey said.
He added that the issue is nowhere near a priority to him. “It’s not even on my radar screen right now,” said Ramsey.
Under legislation sponsored by Sen. Stacey Campfield, R-Knoxville, a school counselor, nurse or principal would have to inform parents if their children’s “circumstances present immediate and urgent safety issues involving human sexuality.”
Campfield told reporters this week that he considers the “act of homosexuality” to be dangerous to a child’s health and safety.
