School board bully Clint McCance resigned




Last night, Clint McCance resigned from his position on the Midland School District in Arkansas. He made the announcement on Anderson Cooper’s show.

Now that he has experienced the nasty blow back from his hateful comments on a national scale, instead of expected local snickering support, he has absolutely disowned his comments.

“I would never support suicide for any kids,” he said. “I don’t support bullying of any kids.”

“I’d like to extend apologies to those families that have lost children, for all those children who feel that suicide is the only way out, especially for the five families who have already lost children,” he said, referring to a rash of recent suicides by gay teens. “I brought more hurt on them… they didn’t deserve that and I do feel genuinely bad for them.”

Though he disapproves of homosexuality, McCance said that “I give everyone a chance and try to love everyone.”

Hmmmm… I think I’ll let the readers take a stab at analyzing how Mr. McCance gives everyone a chance and tries to love them?

I don’t live that far from Pleasant Plains, Arkansas, and I know plenty of “Mr. McCance’s.” Their hate is supported by local extremist Talibangelical preachers, and their followers, as evidenced by the preacher in the article who absolutely agreed with all of Mr. McCance’s words. Also, we can’t forget that until the LGBT community is treated as equal instead of second class citizens in this country then we will continue to be used as a convenient scapegoat.
