Over 11,000 people have joined a Facebook group calling for the ouster of an Arkansas school board member after he cheered the deaths of gay teens.

At the Facebook group Fire Clint McCance, members are outraged by the school official's comments on his own Facebook page.

Reacting to Spirit Day, a day that encourages people to wear purple to remember gay teens bullied to death, McCance, a board member in the Midland school district, goes on an anti-gay rant over the event.

“Seriously they want me to wear purple because five queers committed suicide,” McCance wrote. “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 thereselves because of their sin. REALLY PEOPLE.”

McCance's Facebook page no longer appears on the website's search results, but his comments can be seen in a screen capture.

In responding to a commenter who wrote, “Because hatred is always right,” McCance wrote: “No because being a fag doesn't give you the right to ruin the rest of our lives. If you get easily offended by being called a fag then dont tell anyone you are a fag. Keep that shit to yourself. I dont care how people decide to live their lives. They dont bother if they keep it to thereselves. It pisses me off though that we make a special purple fag day for them. I like that fags cant procreate. I also enjoy the fact that they often give each other aids and die. If you arent against it, you might as well be for it.”

In another response he said he would “disown my kids [if] they were gay.”

According to gay glossy The Advocate, calls and e-mails to the school district were not returned.
