Last Sunday morning, Tennessee State Senator Stacey Campfield was taking three others to brunch at the Bistro at the Bijou in Knoxville when he was approached by the owner and told to leave.

Martha Boggs, owner of the Bistro at the Bijou, says she ordered state Sen. Stacey Campfield out of her Gay Street restaurant and banned him from brunch Sunday in disgust over his recent remarks about gays and the origin of the AIDS virus.
“He’s Really Gone From Being Stupid To Dangerous”
“When I saw him at the front door, I told him to leave,” Boggs said Monday. “It’s just my way to show support for the gay community and stand up to somebody I think is a bully. He’s really gone from being stupid to dangerous. I think he needs to know what it feels like to be discriminated against.”
In case you’re not familiar with his views, Campfield, Republican – Knoxville, has made national headlines as sponsor of the so-called “don’t say gay” bill. The bill passed the state Senate last year after being revised to permit only sexuality involving “natural human reproduction” to be discussed in public schools. It still awaits a House vote.
And there’s plenty more.
AIDS Began When A Gay Airline Pilot Had Sex With A Monkey?
Campfield made national news again last week after he blamed the AIDS virus on a gay airline pilot having sex with monkeys and called the disease “virtually impossible” to contract via heterosexual intercourse. He made the comments during a radio interview on Sirius XM’s gay-lesbian channel, OutQ. Apparently he hasn’t read the recent report that around one third of AIDs cases are spread by heterosexual people.
