An Arkansas School Board member recently launched an inflammatory anti-gay tirade on Facebook that ran the gamut from basic bigoted slurs, to encouraging “fags” to commit suicide and announcing that he’d disown his own children if they were gay.
In response to a massively popular Facebook initiative to show support for gay youths in the wake of a recent wave of suicides, Clint McCance, a board member in the Midland school district in northern Arkansas, wrote this screed, provided to the Advocate:
A Facebook page entitled “Fire Clint McCance” has since popped up, already mustering the support of nearly 12,000 people at the time of publication.
Protesters have also started a petition to Dean Stanley, Superintendent of the Midland School District, calling from the removal of McCance from the board.
Clint McCance Apologizes but I say to little to late. We have already seen your true side.
