North Carolina state Rep. Larry Brown, who caused controversy last fall after calling gays “queers” and “fruitloops” in an email to his Republican colleagues, is drawing fire again. In an interview Tuesday with The Winston-Salem Journal, Brown said the state government shouldn’t be funding HIV/AIDS treatment for those people who “caused it by the way the live.”
Brown, who represents Kernersville, N.C., and other portions of eastern Forsyth County, made his comments during an interview about the state’s new legislative session, which begins later this month. Stopping HIV/AIDS funding was on his list of priorities this session, along with passing a state constitutional amendment that would bar same-sex marriages.
“I’m not opposed to helping a child born with HIV or something,” Brown told the paper, “but I don’t condone spending taxpayers’ money to help people living in perverted lifestyles.”
