One Nation candidate's vile post about homosexuality has prompted widespread fury.

A One Nation candidate has branded gay people “patients” who “need to receive treatment” in a repulsive social media post.

Shan Ju Lin, from Queensland, shared a dated news article on her Facebook page on Friday about a couple who had been accused of sexually abusing their foster children.

However the British men who are the subject of the article, George Harasz and Douglas Wirth, were cleared of wrongdoing in 2014 after being arrested way back in 2011.

The Huffington Post reports that in her now-deleted post, Ju Lin wrote, "Abnormal sex behaviour leads to abnormal crime. Gays should be treated as patients, they need to receive treatments."

The remarks have caused outrage and calls for demands of an apology.


Mamamia has contacted Ju Lin for comment.

The Taiwanese-Australian politician - formerly a candidate for Bob Katter's Australia Party - is no stranger to controversy.

She has previously made headlines for disparaging remarks against the LGBTIQ community, including posting a photoshopped image of President Barack Obama wearing makeup and a pride flag earring and pin.

Ju Lin was also blasted for saying "good Asians" would support her Pauline Hanson's policies, despite the party leader's now-famous 1996 comment that Australia was being "swamped by Asians".
