- The topic of gay marriage is being debated here in North Carolina as “Amendment 1″ comes up for voting this week. The WWE crews are currently in North Carolina for this week’s tapings and WWE Champion CM Punk sounded off on Twitter this morning about the topic:

“Amendment 1 is ridiculous. It’s an invasion of people’s rights. North Carolina, why do you care if somebody wants to marry who they love?”

“Same sex marriage should be legal. The fact that it’s illegal is embarrassing.”

“Divorce rate is at least 50% between men and women, so don’t give me the values angle.”

“Making same sex marriage illegal is the same as having segregated drinking fountains. Embarrassing. The human race is embarrassing. #evolve”

    Tony, the world isn’t governed by your antiquated religion and if you want to cite religion as the precedent for how things are doing, let’s have Muslims or Jews push their beliefs down your throat. Moron.

  • Tony A.

    “I’d rather live in a manner where people all around me are doing whatever makes them happy without infringing on the rights of others”

    So, if having perverse sex with animals makes someone happy, there is nothing wrong with it. When you let society go on their own understanding/emotions, more perversion follows.

    “Mary, for example, was about 13 or 14 since the term “virgin” refers to “young”

    My comment is too long to be placed here.

    “It works like this: if you are a Christian who opposes homosexuality because it’s in the bible, then you are a hypocrite because you probably do a lot of things that are punishable by death from the bible.”

    First, laws were only given to Jacob(Israel) Jacob is currently in captivity scattered among all the other nations. Some laws that were written in the old testament are currently impossible to keep, because the gentiles(nations that weren’t given the laws) are currently in ruler ship.

    @Joe

    I oppose homosexually because it’s against nature. The creator made Men to have sex with women. We all have a dad and a mom. It seems if you speak out against the homosexually lifestyle, you’re labeled as a bully, hater.. You would also be told to go kill yourself, just because you don’t agree with this perverse form of love. It seems you want a world were ppl accept everyone’s different lifestyles. Don’t I have freedom of speech? Can I exercise my right and speak out against the homosexual lifestyle without being called names? You damn hypocrites.

  • Joe

    “If it’s none of my business, homos should’ve stayed in the closet. They made it my business when they decided to come out the closet. The younger generation is being corrupted with this mess. Homosexually is now taught in some schools.”

    That is literally the exact same argument they used for interracial marriage, rights of blacks after the Civil War, and many other idiotic restriction of rights.

    It works like this: if you are a Christian who opposes homosexuality because it’s in the bible, then you are a hypocrite because you probably do a lot of things that are punishable by death from the bible.

    I’d rather live in a manner where people all around me are doing whatever makes them happy without infringing on the rights of others than hold on to homophobic beliefs because of some antiquated book that has instances of pedophilia (Mary, for example, was about 13 or 14 since the term “virgin” refers to “young”).

    As for whether or not it’s gross, what do I care? Heterosexual couples can engage in sodomy too (anal and oral sex), but that isn’t looked at as evil.

  • Tony A.

    @Brian Adams(DPW)If it’s none of my business, homos should’ve stayed in the closet. They made it my business when they decided to come out the closet. The younger generation is being corrupted with this mess. Homosexually is now taught in some schools.

    @Tony What happens inside a persons bedroom is none of your business. It doesn’t effect you. If they are going to “lose” their place in heaven then let it be their own choice. Is it worth it? If someone is willing to risk their eternal soul to be with a guy do you really think it’s a choice?

  • ant

    @Tony A..agree with u except for the women part aha

  • Tony A.

    Sex consummates the marriage. (This is a wrestling site) Remember when Edge told Vicki the only saving grace was that they never consumated the marriage?

    Two men pounding each other in the ASS and two women using dildos and/or licking each other, is a vile form of sex.

  • dave

    to end a marriage you go to a lawyer not a priest. marriage is legal contract. thats all it is.

  • Tony A.

    @Brian Adams(DPW) Telling people that something isn’t natural, Is not hate.. Also, people JUDGE everyday. According to the Bible, we can judge(1 Corinthians 6:2, John 7:24) Matthew 7:1 is talking about hypocrites.. Continue reading until Matthew 7:5.

    @Joe Someone with a genetic disease that prevents them from bringing forth life, will not face same judgement as homos. Like I said earlier, Homosexually is a vile affection. I love my brother, I love my male friend, but what type of love makes a man stick his penis in another man’s ASS? That’s just SICK. It’s a perverse form of love.

  • Tony A.

    “I also believe in the fact the Jesus Christ died for our sins so that we could enter heaven and in that death I believe that he didn’t just die for all Christianity. I believe he died for all of humanity.”

    @The_electrifying_one You can believe that all you want, but that’s not what the Bible says.. If you believe in Christ, you must believe on him as the scripture says(John 7:38) Also, Read 1Corinthians 6:9, Matthew 5:17-19

    Christ is the lamb without blemish.. Israelites are the only nation that was given the laws. Sin is the transgression of the law. Christ died and rose for Israel. Gentiles were never given the laws(Psalm 147:19-20) Christ is needed for Israel, because it’s impossible for Israel to keep all of their old laws in their captivity. Israel is currently scatter among all nations being taught to go against THEIR “God”. Read James 1:1, Deut. 28:64, JER. 17:4, Romans 9:3-5

  • OrkyBoy

    @Ray – Marriage is a Christian concept? Are you serious?? The concept of marriage was around for thousands of years before Christianity and is a major feature of all religions and societies.

    No-one is asking that gays get married in church, merely that they can have a civil ceremony and the same legal rights for their partner as any other couple.

  • Bill

    Honestly, it doesn’t matter whether the marriage is illegal or not. Homosexuals will still exist, so there’s no reason to uselessly argue about it.

  • Sammo

    Is CM Punk trying to get Ultimate Warrior’s attention?

  • Ray

    Here’s the problem. -Marriage- is a Christian concept. It was invented by Christians. And if you’re gay? You’re not supported by Christians. I don’t believe gay people should be allowed to get married persay but should be allowed a same-sex union that gives them the same rights as a married couple. But getting married? That’s not available to gay people, yes, for their choice of lifestyle.

    There’s nothing wrong with that at all. It’s not ignorant, it’s not hateful. It’s like not being invited to a party and not understanding when you’re asked to leave. C’mon now.

  • Turn Off The Dark

    Couldn’t agree more Punk…So many jesus freaks here. If they love eachother, who the hell cares? Just because you believe in fairy tales, doesn’t mean everyone else does. Peace.

  • The_electrifying_one

    I do not wish to offend anybody. However in my view in a multi cultural, multi faith, multi race and multi national society and world that every person should be accepted for who they are and what they believe in. Be that person straight, gay, black, white, fully abled, disabled, to have faith or not.

    I am a Christian and I firmly believe that as written in the bible you should treat others how you wish to be treated yourself.

    My question to all those strict christian’s. How would you feel if someone was to tell you that you couldn’t marry the one person you truly love and wish to spend the rest of you mortal life with?

    I also believe in the fact the Jesus Christ died for our sins so that we could enter heaven and in that death I believe that he didn’t just die for all Christianity. I believe he died for all of humanity.

    I also believe God to be like a mountain. Each faith is looking at God from a different face of the mountain. For example Christianity looks at this mountain from the north. Judaism looks at God from a slightly different angle from the West. Islam looks at the mountain from the East and Hindu’s look at the mountain from the south. Hence why I believe Jesus died for all of humanity. (I do not wish to cause offence to anyone with the example).

    I am also from the UK where gay marriage is legal. I have friends who are gay and they are in some of the happiest relationships I know.

    Who says you should and shouldn’t be able to marry who you love, or believe in what you believe? In the end God will forgive us for our sins and our weaknesses.

    So in short YES gay marriage should be legal!

  • Joe

    @TonyA:

    You said “Homosexually is against nature, life doesn’t come from it. Homosexually is a vile affection.”

    I don’t want children, so I guess anything I do is equal in result. Some people are sterile by genetic diseases. I guess they shouldn’t be married either. Also, old people cannot be married if their first marriage ends in death (which is basically in the bible as well).

    You are a sad person.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/DominationWrestling1 Brian Adams(DPW)

    First off a bunch of homophobic people wrote the bible. God or Jesus did not set down by candle light and write down the bible. People need to stop picking and choosing who to hate. Everyone seems to need to hate one specific kind of people and now it’s apparently the homosexual community. Stop the hate and stop judging others. (It says so in the bible right?)

  • undertaker21

    @Buttercastle. you know nothing about life. nothing changes because you dont allow that change to be made.

  • undertaker21

    cm punk your wrong. it shouldnt be legal. how would cm punk look marrying a guy.

  • blue4everd

    @This Guy…LOL that was hilarious!!!! I have said it here before that i was gay. I’m glad CM Punk shared his views on it. :p these comments oare kinda offending me though..im gay and catholic. LOL

  • Tony A

    Let the wicked do their job.. If they want to continue to be homos and/or support homos, go right ahead.. The kingdoms of this world belong to the heathen/gentiles(people who were NOT given the laws) anyway.. When the new kingdom comes it will destroy all these kingdoms and last forever. And there will be no homos in the new kingdom. You wicked people live it up now, because you will have no say in the kingdom to come.

  • OrkyBoy

    Everyone has the right to believe in God and express their own opinion but those same rights have to allow two people who love each other to marry, regardless of sex, race or religion.

    every person must have the same rights as everyone else. Simples!!!

  • Tony A

    @Damien Phoenix

    So, if America said it’s wrong, we should follow it? America is not The Most High.. To me, America is the land of my captivity. My people have been following our captors long enough. I can’t wait until we finally separated from the nation that has oppressed us for over 400 years

    I don’t care if it’s not in the constitution. America or Amerigo Vespucci, is not the Most High. This land called “America” was stolen and it will soon face judgement.

  • Malice

    Yofits,

    Stupid people like you just shouldn’t have opinions or at least say them out loud. I’m just sayin…

  • Tony A

    @Buttercastle You have no understanding.. The creator is seen by the things that are made. In order to obtain righteousness, the righteous must see both sides, so evil, destruction, killing, disabilities etc must exist. If man was only subjected to the good things, how can he grow? How would he be able to obtain appreciation for life(the greatest gift that was given), if he didn’t no what it meant to lose it?

    @LSC Who or what are your sources???

    Homosexually is against nature, life doesn’t come from it. Homosexually is a vile affection.

  • Damien Phoenix

    So just because the bible says gay marriage is bad we should follow it, than tell me where it says that in the United States Constitution.

  • LSC

    @Yofits

    Nobody gives a fuck about the stupid bible. Everyone knows it’s fake stories like for example…on the 7th day of the world existing, “God” made two humans but that’s a bunch of BS. Humans weren’t even around when the dinosaurs were around…

    Bottom line is CM Punk is right once more and your BS about the shitty bible has become irrelevant. Nobody gives a fuck if the bible says gays shouldn’t be a part of the world, if two people love each other, straight or gay, it doesn’t matter. It’s love, let people love others for whatever they want to love!!!

    What’s funny is people are against gay marriage because an invisible man in the sky told them, and by told them I mean from a book he didn’t write, that it was wrong. The same man that causes natural disasters and children being born with physical and mental disabilities. The same man you pray to in times of despair and yet nothing changes because he’s too busy tellin people to be anti-gay. Give me a fuckin break.

  • Dave

    Why are we bothered by the teachings of a bloke.
    Who Doesn’t Exist.
    If you believe in god, you are either deluded or desperate.

  • yofits

    God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve.

  • Logan

    And the Holy book says a senior citizen built a big ass boat.

    Ever see those COEXIST bumper stickers? We as people sharing this earth just to do just that and support our fellow man/woman. Guys want to marry other guys, girls want to marry other girls. Who are we to judge? You love some one, then marry ‘em.

  • Allen

    @yofits Are you for real right now? You are a joke to humanity. God help you.

  • 1919dpg

    oh, it also says in DEUTORONOMY that if a woman is not a virgin on the night of her wedding she is to be EXECUTED on her fathers door step..

    not to mention your allowed to have slaves aswell.

  • 1919dpg

    in the bible it says that if a woman does not scream loud enough as to be heard while being raped she should be executed alongside her rapist.

    it also says that the rapist can also just pay the womans father to marry her without the possibility of divorce…
    this is all in DEUTORONOMY

    it’s also a sin to eat shell fish..

  • ahmed

    everything contrary to the nature turns into a disaster Ask yourself why make the offspring of both sexes during sex and not only one…..When we come and declare that we have put in a large fault or defect in human nature

  • yofits

    There should be a LGBT holocaust.
    Those who do not follow God’s law is a traitor.

    I hope the republican candidate wins over Obummer this election so that we could have the LGBT holocaust sooner than later.

  • sammy

    God destroyed the people of sodom and gomorrah for their gay acts. so i can’t agree with same sex marriage.

  • Joe

    “But the Holy book says gays and lesbians are forbidden.
    We must not support them, as they have insulted God by not following His orders.”

    The bible says a lot of things. Like you aren’t supposed to shave, wear polyester, or get tattoos in the same section that forbids homosexuality. Plus, marriage in the bible was usually just payment for debts where fathers sold their daughters.

  • 1919dpg

    @wifebeater it’s not a chouce. homosexuals are born homosexual. there’s even been a gene fouund which is the cause.

  • voice of reason

    i’m a supporter of gay marriage yes but i’m more of a supporter of equality, equal rights for gays & lesbians equal rights for people with disabilities.

    you know what in my eyes every person is just the same we all deserve to be treated in the same mannor as everyone else.

  • Wife Beater 3:16

    yofits

    It’s a moral choice just like watching porn, drinking in excess, and quite frankly indulging in any pleasurable thing.

  • Mr. XYZ

    You tell them Punk! Maybe they’ll listen to you.

  • Cropsy

    yeah if gays wanna get married and be miserable like the rest of us I say we should let em!
