I grew up in the Triad and now live in CA; yes,compared to NC it is liberal.However most of the state is culturally conservative outside of SF,LA & the more affluent costal areas.What this man said is unacceptable to any educated,moral individual.He is entitled to his own misguided beliefs but when he gives voice to them in his capacity as an elected official he is completely out of order. I haven't been back to NC in 23 yrs & I still hope that one day I will be able to visit a more tolerant state.

I am proud to be represented by Larry .Brown. They called them Queers in the day when i was growing up. They haven't changed so why change the name. I say you go Larry, but watch out for your back stabbing colleagues.

Wrong....don't forget Prop 8 was overturned in CA...because...it's unconstituional...remember..no one voted on heterosexual marriage. Also...don't forget that there is a really good chance that being able to get a divorce in CA is going to become illegal!

THIS is the representaion of Kernersville, NC?

And the comments here - What a laugh! Ignorant, backward, pathetically wrapped in Biblical Bolic, and unable to think for themselves.

The Sodom and Gommorah reference thinks that Homosexuals were any part of it goes to show the lies that the Religious Rightards make up. I'd probably be completely wrong if I had never read the Bible, but it's probably cuz she couldn't read!

And really, you post your own complete names??

What brainacks! Thank K'ville! I needed the levity just before going to bed with my legally married husband! Guess what we'll be dong, oops I mean doing. Eeeeek!!!

Lighten up fruitloop. MAN why does everyone let such silly things bother them?

I am a white boy with an old 4x4 with big tires, a Camaro and a house full of guns. I have 6 tattoos, drink beer, drive a tractor-trailer and live at the end of a dead end dirt road. Go ahead with the redneck and white trash jokes. I will enjoy them. I have a gay friend that I exchange the filthiest "gay" jokes we know. I call him the "F" word constantly but he isn't a stupid idiot that lets words bother him.
When are the gays going to sue comedians and movie producers for using "bad" words in their act/movie?

The fact is that Mr. Brown is a public official...and he and any other public official is held to a higher standard. Sure there are plenty of bigots out there...however Mr. Brown is in office to serve the people of his district...no matter what their shape, size, religion, sexual orientation, color, etc. Anyone with common sense would take a look at the massive rise in teen suicides and know that they come from bigots like Mr. Brown and others that feel the need to spew hate. It's 2010...time for people to wake up and realize that YES there are people out there in the world who are different then they are...and they need to get over it.

Don't worry Larry, there are enough of us who agree with you in your district to re-elect you. Tell it like it is. Don't be bullied by these misguided bipeds, including the Fox 8 reporters.

Misguided? Really? How about taking a look in the mirror...and you'll see the reason behind all of these senseless suicides by youth all across this country. You and those that think like you are the real bullies...you are sick!

Wow, it's HIS fault that people are committing suicide? What an ignorant statement. You've got some anger issued Wood, you should get some professional help.

Yes, it's his fault as well as those that talk just like him, and that sir makes them ignorant...not me. If you didn't know, young people listen to and act on the words they hear come out of the mouths of adults. These senseless suicides could have been prevented...however their bullies learned their hate filled speech from adults such as Mr. Brown. Yes, I am angry, it's sickening to hear the hate spewed out of Mr. Brown's mouth and those like him. No, I don't need professional help, I believe in and stand for equality...however Mr. Brown could certainly use some professional help.

If you men don't stop putting down gays I'm going to list the names of ALL the married men that I have had sex with. It will take alot of space to list them all but I will if you men don't stop this crap. At least 98% of all men that I have had sex with are married. Most men have had sex with another man sometime and most of them continue to have sex with another man. Gay sex is everywhere.
