mccance1Clint McCance, vice president of the Midland School District in Pleasant Plains, Ark., told CNN's Anderson Cooper on Thursday night that he will resign his seat and is sorry that he wrote on his Facebook page that gay kids should kill themselves.
"I would never support suicide for any kids," McCance said. "I don't support bullying of any kids."
When his comments were made public via gay magazine the Advocate, McCance said he received "thousands of phone calls, hate mails, people threatening to kill my family and me." He claims his wife and two kids have moved out of the state temporarily to escape the harassment.
"I'm reaping what I've sown," he said. "I've had a lot of hate speech thrown at me and my family on every level."
