Last year on his podcast, WWE legend Stone Cold Steve Austin went on a fiery, NSFW rant in support of gay marriage that's equal parts intense and humorous. Maybe the most interesting thing about it, though, is that one of the biggest, baddest wrestlers in the pretend wrestling game loudly gave his support to same-sex marriage and it went largely unnoticed for several months. Which makes sense, in that it shouldn’t be a big deal, and probably wouldn't be if he also didn't take a folding chair to the skull of gay marriage opponents who claim to have God is on their side:
“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 motherfuckers talked to God, and God said that same-sex marriage was a no-can-do?”
The guy he's talking with says that he doesn't have a problem with "gay sex marriage," whatever that means, but it's hard to tell if he actually agrees with Austin, or is simply afraid of being verbally body-slammed.
The rant is so entertaining that you almost expect Vince McMahon to interrupt the podcast, grab the mic, and announce that the matter will be settled in the ring this summer when Stone Cold faces off against gay marriage opponent, Mister Traditional.
