Vestal High School Alum Sends Controversial Emails
2/2/2013 (Updated 10:55:03 PM)A Vestal High School graduate's email response has gone viral, but
not in a good way.
Published reports say Tennessee State Senator Stacey Campfield told at least three people who wrote into his office that they were against his proposed "Don't Say Gay" legislation that they should get therapy and medication.
The "Don't Say Gay" bill, now called the Classroom Protection Act, bans talking about homosexuality in schools from grades kindergarten through eighth. It also requires teachers to notify parents if they believe a student is gay.
Several entertainment websites have posted his email responses and in one response he says:
"You seem to have some serious, deep anger issues. Have you ever thought about therapy? I hear they are doing some wonderful things with medications these days," said Campfield in an email response.
The 1986 alum was part of the Vestal High Schools "Wall of Fame." As we've reported, area residents have petitioned to have him removed because of his remarks regarding AIDS and Homosexuality.
