The mayor of a small town in Alabama has apologized after posting on Facebook that the only way to reclaim America is to kill gay and transgender people, abortionists, and socialists.
"Although I believe my comment was taken out of context and was not targeting the LGBTQ community, I know that it was wrong to say anyone should be kill [sic]," said Carbon Hill Mayor Mark Chambers, according to the Daily Mountain Eagle. "There are not enough words for me to express how much a [sic] regret posting that comment. I hope very much our Citizens and anyone that was hurt by this comment can accept my apology."
Chambers has served as mayor of Carbon Hill, a city of about 2,000 in northern Alabama, for five years. Last week, he posted on Facebook, "We live in a society where homosexuals lecture us on morals, transvestites lecture us on human biology, baby killers lecture us on human rights and socialists lecture us on economics."
One of his Facebook friends responded, "By giving the minority more rights than the majority. I hate to think of the country my grandkids will live in unless somehow we change and I think that will take a revolution."
