Alabama mayor defends comments on ‘killing out' gay and transgender people, ‘baby killers'
[AL.com] Chambers wrote:
"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."
When a Facebook friend replied that they "hate to think of the country my grandkids will live in," adding change would "take a revolution," Chambers replied: "The only way to change it would be to kill the problem out. I know it’s bad to say but without killing them out there’s no way to fix it."
Chambers initially denied writing the post to WBRC but later said they were meant to be shared in a private message as opposed to a public post. He also said the comments were taken out of context.
"I never said anything about killing out gays or anything like that," Chambers told the television station, saying his posts was referring to what would happen in a "revolution."
"If it comes to a revolution in this country both sides of these people will be killed out," he said.
Chambers was not at city hall when AL.com attempted to contact him and the person who answered the phone said he did not have email. He has not responded to questions sent to him via the city clerk.
