During his career as a professional wrestler, as part of the WWF/WWE's "Attitude" era, Stone Cold Steve Austin was never one to mince words and was as cantankerous and controversial as they come.
While Steve Austin may have cut a legendary promo or two in his day, what may (or may not) be his most shocking smackdown is his impressively profane support of same-sex marriage.
The folks at Deadspin dug up the audio from the "Texas Rattlesnake's" own podcast — "The Steve Austin Show - Unleashed!" — from July 16, 2013, in which Stone Cold tells it like it is.
"I'm for same-sex marriage. I don't give a s**t if two guys, two gals, guy-gal, whatever it is, I believe that any human being in America, or any human being in the g**damn world, that wants to be married, and if it's same-sex, more power to 'em."
But Austin wasn't done dropping the Stunner yet. In talking with his pal Ted Fowler at Broken Skull Ranch, Stone Cold took it a step further and challenged any institution that condemned the idea of same-sex marriage.
"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 motherf***ers talked to God, and God said that same-sex marriage was a no-can-do?"
"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 f***ing prison, and accept God and He's going to let him into heaven? After the fact that he did all that s**t? See that's all horses**t to me, that don't jive with me."
Stone Cold Steve Austin's same-sex marriage diatribe starts at the 53:35 mark.
