Because Stone Cold Said So
STONE Cold Steve Austin is a professional WWE wrestler who’s best known for his beer drinkin’, foul mouthin’ general bad-assery. Yet the wrestling world’s most glorious redneck has dropped a Stone Cold Stunner on his redneck heritage – he’s come out of the closet – filled with ball caps and jeans that have seen better days – as an ally and supporter of gay marriage.
“I’m for same sex marriage. I don’t give a shit 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.”
The WWE megastar has never been one to watch his language or paint a pretty picture with his words and his aggressive stand on this controversial issue is just typical of his forceful personality. In his rant, Stone Cold targets religious bigots and church extremists who have the anti-gay marriage view.
“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 fucking 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 horseshit to me, that don’t jive with me.”
Listen to the full podcast here. This isn’t the first time the anger management candidate spurned his redneck upbringing and stood up for the little guy. On an episode of Punk’d, a former MTV show, Stone Cold was pranked when a racist man berated a black valet driver in a seemingly unprovoked attack. Stone Cold saw red and launched a tirade of abuse at the poor fake racist.
Stone Cold is the archetypical Caramel Egg – smooth, hard chocolate on the outside, but soft and gooey caramel on the inside.
And that’s the bottom line…because Stone Cold said so.
