Video: AR school official mea culpas his crazed anti-gayness; no apology for twice writing 'thereselves'
Anderson Cooper absolutely nailed his interview with Clint McCance, the (now former) Arkansas school board member who seems to think that his brute comments about LGBT people can now be written off as a simple case of misspeaking. Here's the whole thing, in two parts:

The most shocking part for this writer? That McCance, even while so clearly in damage control mode, still wouldn't repudiate his comments about how he'd disown and "run off" his kids if they were gay, instead replying "I don't know what I would do yet" when pressed on the matter. That'd seem to tell us all we really need to know about what he's learned where his regrets lie.
And of course Ms. McCance justifies all of this with The Bible. So someone, please: Tell me where in my King James I can find these comments:
"Seriously they want me to wear purple because five queers killed themselves. 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."
The reaction to the post was both positive and negative, the Advocate reports. McCance responded to one detractor, saying:
"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 me 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."
After one commenter invoked McCance's Christianity and his willingness to seemingly talk hatefully about the families of other people, McCance wrote back:
"I would disown my kids they were gay. They will not be welcome at my home or in my vicinity. I will absolutely run them off. Of course my kids will know better. My kids will have solid christian beliefs. See it infects everyone."
