School board member thinks "all fags should kill themselves"?

Have you read this article?

http://advocate.com/News/News_Features/Arkansas_School_Board_Member_Thinks_Fags_Should_Die/

I mean, first. I'm a little worried that we are allowing people like this to be in charge of a school district because the idiot cannot spell or use grammar and punctuation properly. Second, why isn't this douche bag fired?

  • Probably appointed. Or who knows, in Arkansas, he could have been elected.

  • the reason I ask is because we've seen this sort of thing before in rural southern areas where school board members are appointed and not elected. The appointing of school board members has got to stop.

  • THe man is lacking in basic IQ points for sure and probably lacking in a conscience. I am sure he doesn;t even recognize that what he said was wrong. I lived in the south for many years and ran across that kind of mind-set and the lack of realization that there was anything wrong with the way they thought. It just resulted in my turning around and walking away because it is pointless to reason with them. I am so sorry for those kids who have to live with that. Even feel sorry for straight kids who have to live with that kind of influence, those kinds of moronic school staff members.ANY kids there. They need respectable, accepting and reasonable role models while growing up and they won't get many there.

  • LOL @ "Thereselves" Wow. I grew up in Arkansas and now live in Louisiana and these people are everywhere. I see it daily. I have many gay friends and I have seen some of what they deal with.


    I do believe that man was elected to the position.

  • He was elected and is currently running for re election unopposed.
    why is he unopposed? There are some good ol boy politics and family connections with him.
    That is the way things are done in the rural white south, even in 2010.

  • Yikes! You guys know my thoughts on the gay lifestyle, but this is simply horrible. I don't have a thing against gay people and would never suggest such a thing. What a bad example he sets.
