This makes my stomach turn and my blood boil.
The Human Rights Campaign discovered that Midland School Board member Clint McCance went into a bigoted Jeremiad on Facebook, bashing the very LGBT teens he has a duty to protect. He MUST be fired for his reckless and irresponsible hate speech.
McCance was reacting on Facebook to Spirit Day that urged people to wear purple in honor of young LGBT teens who committed suicide after being bullied by peers. On his page McCance wrote:
“Seriously they want me to wear purple because five queers committed suicide. 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 therselves because of their sin. REALLY PEOPLE.”
He also went on to say if he had a gay child that he would disown him or her — in the name of Christian values.
Please contact the Superintendent, principal and school board. Politely, but firmly, insist that McCance be removed from the board.
