This is absolutely disgusting.
Clint McCance, a board member of the Midland school district of Arkansas, has caused an uproar for posting a bigoted and hate-fueled anti-gay rant on his Facebook profile encouraging more "queers" and "fags" to commit suicide!
While people all over the country were wearing purple last week in support of LGBT, McCance chose to write the following message:
"Seriously they want me to wear purple because five queers killed themselves. The only way im wearin it for them is if they all commit suicide. I cant believe the people of this world have gotten this stupid. We are honoring the fact that they sinned and killed thereselves because of their sin. REALLY PEOPLE."
Worse yet, he received positive feedback from various people!
However, when one commented "Because hatred is always right," McCance responded:
"No because being a fag doesn't give you the right to ruin the rest of our lives. If you get easily offended by being called a fag then dont tell anyone you are a fag. Keep that shit to yourself. I dont care how people decide to live their lives. They dont bother me if they keep it to thereselves. It pisses me off though that we make a special purple fag day for them. I like that fags cant procreate. I also enjoy the fact that they often give each other aids and die. If you arent against it, you might as well be for it."
He also responded to another comment:
"I would disown my kids they were gay. They will not be welcome at my home or in my vicinity. I will absolutely run them off. Of course my kids will know better. My kids will have solid christian beliefs. See it infects everyone."
We'll refrain from responding to any of the nonsense written in his comments, because it's nothing but hateful garbage with no rhyme, reason, or logical thought behind it. We see no "solid christian beliefs" anywhere near that kind of thought-process.
And this is someone who participates in actively oversees what kind of education the youth of his area have!
HRC President Joe Solmonese issued the following statement on the matter:
"Clint McCance has put a face on the hate that devastates our young people. McCance shouldn't be allowed near children, let alone managing their education. We call for his immediate resignation from the school board."
Enough young people have lost their lives because of this kind of toxic and mindless hate!
We hope that administrators in his school district realize the severity of his comments and take proper action to rectify the already damaging situation.
