*A small town in Arkansas is up in arms after an elected school board member went on an anti-gay tirade on Facebook and declared that he wanted homosexuals to kill themselves.

Midland School District Vice President Clint McCance wrote the posts in response to Spirit Day, a campaign to encourage support for gay youth, in light of the recent string of teen suicides as a result of bullying.

McCance, 31, used the words “queer” and “fag” on his personal Facebook page and repeatedly said he’d disown his children if he found out they were gay.

I cant believe the people of this world have gotten this stupid. We are honoring the fact that they sinned and killed thereselves (sic) because of their sin. REALLY PEOPLE.”
