The outcry and sign petitions created enough stink to have Clint McCance resigned worked! Even though most of you didn't have interest in signing and attacked me for doing it, on line activism worked once again, it pressured him into doing the right thing! Anyone would like to admit you were wrong?
I watched some of the interview with Anderson Cooper. His "apology" seemed more obligatory than sincere. He acted surprised by his own words--he said, "I'm sorry I made those ignorant comments and hurt people on a broad spectrum." He pretended that he didn't know that kids had actually committed suicide after bullying remarks much like the ones he made on his FaceBook page, even though his own words negate that pretense.
He has no business working with or on behalf of children, in any capacity. Maybe he can get a job with Fred Phelps, though. His intelligence (thereselves?!?) and compassion rank right up there with the sorts of demonstrations the WBC like to hold. I'm glad, at least, that he showed enough wisdom to resign. I doubt the sincerity of his apology. I think the only thing he's sorry for is that he has repercussions to pay for his ill-chosen words and complete lack of sensitivity.
