Arkansas School Official Facebook Post Urges Gay Youths to Commit Suicide
A member of a northern Arkansas school board is facing calls to resign after ridiculing the recent suicides of bullied gay and lesbian youths. Posting on his Facebook account, Clint McCance said he would follow a call to wear purple clothing to show solidarity with gay and lesbian teens only "if they all commit suicide." McCance continued: "We are honoring the fact that they sinned and killed [themselves] because of their sin."
