Tennessee passed a bill in February that largely banned the presence of LGBTQ flags in public school classrooms.

The Republican-controlled Tennessee House voted 70-24 to send the legislation to the Senate, where a vote could happen before the end of the month. The vote sounded quite intense, as one Democratic Rep. Justin Jones apparently yelled at House Speaker Carmen Sexton to the point where Republicans voted Jones out of order, halting all of his comments.

Two other people who opposed the bill were also kicked out of the gallery for talking throughout proceedings. “I am proud when I walk into the public schools in my city, to see the LGBTQ flag in the classrooms, proudly put up by teachers who understand the suffering that many of their students go through,” Democratic Rep. Jason Powell said. “We should be welcoming and celebrating our students, not hating on them.” (LEARN MORE: Even Secular People Are Against The Trans Movement)

The LGBTQ Flag’s Meaning

The purpose of the LGBTQ flag is to display one’s sexual preference for all the world to see. Unlike other flags, which represent countries and cultures, the LGBTQ flag is an exclusively sexual piece of decor, which doesn’t belong in any public school classroom where children are present. This is not an attack on those who identify with the flag, but a push to remove sexual content from the immediate access of children.

The bill still allows other types of flags in classrooms. “Approved flags include the U.S. flag, the Tennessee flag, flags considered protected historical items under state law, as well as flags of Native American tribes, local governments’ armed forces and prisoners of war or those missing in action, other countries and their local governments, colleges or universities or the schools themselves,” Fox News wrote of the bill.  (LEARN MORE: World Expert Says Transgenderism Is ‘Mental Disorder,’ Sex Changes Are ‘Biologically Impossible,’ And The Industry Will Collapse Like Eugenics Did)
