STAMFORD, CONNECTICUT, May 9, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) WWE wrestling superstar C.M. Punk strikes an aggressive pose inside the ring, but it seems he saved his hardest blows for supporters of the traditional family.
On Monday, the grappler told his Twitter followers he opposed North Carolinas constitutional amendment to define marriage as the union of one man and one woman, which passed in a landslide on Tuesday.
One of his followers responded, Man was meant for woman, and even the thought of homos make me sick. Punk then replied, Kill yourself.
He told another supporter of the nuclear family to drink bleach.
Just chalk it up as the sort of rhetoric were used to now from the forces of tolerance, Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) told LifeSiteNews.com.
In another tweet, Punk castigated the amendments supporters as So many stupid people. Bigots. Talking about whats natural.
Ironically, he later posted a message stating, I am a star. Im fighting bigots here. Zero tolerance.
The measure, he wrote, is ridiculous. He added, The human race is embarrassing. #evolve.
It just never stops, LarBarbera said. As gay power grows, the rhetoric on the other side becomes more and more caustic and contemptuous of anybody who disagrees.
The 33-year-old, born Philip Jack Brooks, is one of the most popular wrestlers in the WWE.
If it was a conservative athlete who said to a pro-gay activist kill yourself, I think his career would be over, LaBarbera told LifeSiteNews.
Later Monday evening after the wrestling federations anchor program Monday Night Raw Punk softened his remarks and deleted the offending remarks from his Twitter feed.
I apologize, he responded. I dont want you to kill yourself. I want you to better yourself. Just as I want to better myself.
He later added, Sorry yall. If I let anybody down, I apologize. Ill make it up to ya and move forward with a better understanding of others feelings.
However, he claimed he had merely decided to stoop to others levels. Sometimes I fight fire with fire and it isnt ways the best way.
Where are the voices of sanity on the liberal side that come down on these kind of things? LaBarbera asked. I think the message is out on the Left: anything goes especially if youre bashing a Christian.
Pro-marriage, pro-family advocates have have increasingly become the targets of verbal and sometimes physical bullying.
It Gets Better campaign creator Dan Savage belittled students who walked out of his foul-mouthed talk at a high school journalism convention, dubbing them pansy-a**ed.
In April, a group of Angry Queers smashed church windows in Portland, throwing rocks through stained-glass windows at the Oregon satellite location of Mars Hill Church, because its pastor teaches sex outside of traditional marriage is sinful....
He must be one of these guys from this golden oldie;
Guess he REALLY likes gettin up close and personal with those other guys.
An empty-headed sodomite entertainer masquerading as an athlete.
Thing is...Punk is supposed to be ‘one of the good guys’. His persona in the ring is one who ‘throws verbal pipe-bombs’ and everyone expects him to do this.
I’d be willing to bet he issued his ‘apology’ after the WWE high muckety-mucks DEMANDED he do so, and that was likely because they got a flood of emails from their fan base.
Eh. If the WWE is going to be like this, it’s dead to me.
boycott WWE. get this guy fired.
My boys are quite fond of Friday Night Smackdown. Not anymore. I’m blocking the channel.
Leon Phelps “the Ladies Man”: Well, Lance, you’re clearly gay. There’s nothing really else to say about that. I think you all know that. And that’s cool, but, you know, you were trying to oil me up and that’s not really cool.
Its the latest trend,support the homosexual lobby or be condemned for it.
Isn’t this just part of a Vince McMahon scripted act?
Like back when the Iron Sheikh would come out and say “Iran #1! USA, ptui!” Just so Captain Hetero can come out and kick his arse in a big Friday night pay-per-view?
Well, it shows not everyone is born with a brain or compassion for his fellow man. What a disgusting person.
No ego there.
The WWE where the bouts are scripted, but the brain damage is very, very real.
Headline: CM Punk repudiates his own mother and father as bigots and homophobes. Asks them to drink bleach and die!
I thought the “bad guy” persona was developed in the ring or during the “story” portions of the matches. I don’t watch wrestling, so I really don’t know how it works.
Never heard of this guy. I get so angry when the libs say something stupid and then say “I’m sorry”. Just proves how childish they are.They don’t use the brains God gave them.
looks kind of like that queer boss doctor on that queer show about trainee doctors
Perhaps. But those old wrestling “villains” were kind of funny in a tongue-in-cheek manner. Just like the bad guys in old b-westerns.
But a homo wrestler? Half-naked and writhing around on a mat with some other sweaty dude? That’s just too sick. Leads to revulsion, not entertainment.
evolution requires an next generation.
Time for this prima donna to go.
looks like southpark had wrestling correct.
The human race is embarrassing. #evolve.
Dear leftards, evolution would have eliminated a “natural” state that can not pro-create. I know logic fails you, but if you want to force me believe evolution, then you better be willing to live by it.
If he supports sodomites, he didn't have to stoop too low. He's already there.
Is this guy homo or just sticking up for homo's. Article is unclear.
