North Carolina Rep Wants to Stop Funding HIV Treatments for ‘Perverts’

January 15, 2011

The insanity in North Carolina simply has no end.  From calls to create a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage, to bigoted commissioners, to religious zealots virtually hanging themselves on the cross, and the latest is Representative Larry “Fruit Loop” Brown’s call to  de-funding HIV treatment for gays.  How does this man sleep at night if not by the chemical graces of Ambien?

A state representative in North Carolina has said that HIV treatment should not be funded by the taxpayer for people who live “perverted lifestyles.”

In an interview earlier this week with the Winston-Salem Journal, Rep. Larry Brown (R-Forsyth, N.C., said, “I’m not opposed to helping a child born with HIV or something, but I don’t condone spending taxpayers’ money to help people living in perverted lifestyle.”

Brown also discussed in the interview his plans for a constitutional amendment limiting marriage to a union between one man and one woman, which would prevent any efforts to allow same-sex marriage in that state

Homophobic rhetoric in nothing new for Brown, last October he sent a derogatory email to North Carolina House Majority Leader Paul Stam regarding the presentation of a legislative leadership award given to then-Speaker Joe Hackney by Equality North Carolina.

In that E-Mail Brown wrote, “I hope all the queers are thrilled to see him. I am sure there will be a couple legislative fruit loops there in the audience.”
