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....
As always, if you'd like ON or OFF my wrasslin' ping list, let me know
Well I guess we shouldn’t be surprised, after all he made a career of rolling around on a mat with half-naked greased up men...
Guess they are still hoping that claim will become true.
I can’t imagine the general target demographic for televised wrestling is much in favor of homosexuals, so this guy ain’t too bright to get mixed up in this.
“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.”
Ah, the leftist non-apology apology.
“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.”
Andy Griffith, before his conversion, said “You fight fire with a hose” and “You catch more flies with honey.”
What a loser “popular wrestler”.
An appropriate moniker.
What a fag.
I am a star. Im fighting bigots here. Zero tolerance.
So you are intolerant?
On the contrary. Developing a “bad guy” persona the fans love to hate is a staple of professional wrestling. This publicity stunt will put money is his and the organizers’ pockets. That’s not to say he isn’t in fact a poof. But I can picture him showing up in the ring in a wedding dress to set the stage for a virtual riot in the stands. Whatever sells tickets.
boycott WWE. get this guy fired.
Now let’s see who are the bigots and hateful people here?
One can scarcely imagine the value of an endorsement from such a noted intellectual luminary and moral leader.
Worked for this guy.
Good move, Punk, with the WWF being so popular on the liberal east and west coasts. /s
Sin causes you to become that very thing that you hate.
Who wudda thunk? A fake fighter is also a fake man.
