“Don’t Say Gay Bill” Proponents Warned Parents Not To Let Their Children Watch “Modern Family”

Proponents of the “Don’t Say Gay bill” warned parents not to let their children watch the hit TV show Modern Family because it acknowledges the existence of gay people.

NY Daily News reports:

Proponents of a Tennessee bill that would ban schools from teaching about homosexuality are discouraging families from watching ?Modern Family,? a popular sitcom about a gay couple.

The ?Don?t Say Gay Bill,? proposed by Republican Sen. Stacey Campfield, would limit all sexual education except ?natural human reproduction science? before the ninth grade, according to The Associated Press.

The bill was approved by a House subcommittee on Wednesday, but before the vote, a Nashville preacher spoke about the evils of ABC series ?Modern Family.?

He warned parents that children who watch the show might discover there are homosexuals in the world, according to Nashville Scene.

Chairman Joey Hensley agreed, telling the panel he doesn?t think it?s ?appropriate? for children to watch the show.
