Stone Cold Steve Austin spoke out in favor of gay marriage (Audio)
Stone Cold Steve Austin was born in Texas, and the beer-guzzling bad ass has always been proud of it. As most of you know, Texas is not one of the 17 US states where gay marriage is legal. Apparently Stone Cold has formed his own opinions on same-sex marriage, because the WWE star has no issue with it.
Austin spoke out in defense of gay marriage on his podcast months ago, and his comments are just now making the rounds. He made them in typical Stone Cold fashion, with plenty of four-letter words mixed in. Deadspin transcribed the remarks for us:
“I don’t give a s— if two guys, two gals, guy-gal, whatever it is, I believe that any human being in America, or any human being in the goddamn world, that wants to be married, and if it’s same-sex, more power to ’em,” he said.
Stone Cold also spoke about how he believes religion is hypocritical when it comes to same-sex marriage.
“What also chaps my ass, some of these churches, have the high horse that they get on and say ‘we as a church do not believe in that.’ Which one of these motherf—ers talked to God, and God said that same-sex marriage was a no-can-do?” he asked. “OK, so two cats can’t get married if they want to get married, but then a guy can go murder 14 people, molest five kids, then go to f—ing prison, and accept God and He’s going to let him into heaven? After the fact that he did all that shit? See that’s all horses— to me, that don’t jive with me.”
We all know the stereoptypes surrounding gay people and how they can make like incredibly difficult for athletes. Wrestling is as “manly” a sport as there is. An endorsement from someone like Stone Cold can only help the equal rights movement.
