Ignorance delayed is not necessarily ignorance denied as Rep. Joey Hensley has announced he's going to defer his "Don't Say Gay" bill which was scheduled to come before the House Education committee today:
The Tennessee Equality Project, a gay rights group, was planning to bring 100 people dressed in purple to the hearing on the bill scheduled for this afternoon. Chris Sanders, chairman of the group’s Nashville committee, said it was calling off the protest, though a few members may still turn out for the House Education subcommittee meeting where it was scheduled to be heard.
Hensley said he plans to package the bill, which restricts discussions about homosexuality in elementary and middle schools, with other curriculum legislation. He projected the delay will be for about three weeks.
