According to the screen grab obtained by The Advocate, McCance wrote the following about the event: "Seriously they want me to wear purple because five queers committed suicide. 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 therselves because of their sin." (sic)
You really wonder how a mind gets poisoned like this. And I feel for his kids too, since Mr. McCance has now publicly sworn to disown them if they turn out to be gay.
UPDATE: Mr. McCance says he is planning to resign, so as to not sully his community by association with his "ignorant comments".
