“Don’t Say Gay” Bill Advances to House…

The House Education Committee voted 8-7 to advance the bill, the Tennessean reports, but that didn’t include Republican chairman Richard Montgomery.

“I have two children — in the third- and fourth-grade — and don’t want them to be exposed to things I don’t agree with,” said the bill’s sponsor, Republican representative Joey Hensley, according to the Tennessean.
