90’s World Wrestling Federation pro-star ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin has backed efforts to legalize same-sex marriage in the United States, questioning who gave churches the right to decide who is allowed to marry or not.

‘There has been a lot of f***ing stuff in the news lately about same-sex marriage – everybody’s going crazy about this and some of the churches say “oh no can do, you can’t do that,”’ the man nicknamed the Texas Rattlesnake said in a recent profanity-laden podcast.

‘I’m for same-sex marriage. I don’t give a s***t if two guys, two gals, a guy-gay, whatever it is… I believe that any human being in America, any human being in the god-damned world, that wants to be married [should be able to] and if it’s the same-sex more power to them.’

Austin asked how churches could say they knew who should be allowed to marry or not.

‘What also chaffs my ass … is that one of these churches, or some of these churches have the high horse that they get on and say “we as a church do not believe in that,”’ Austin said.

‘Which one of these motherf***ers talked to God and God said same-sex marriage was a no-can-do?’

Austin also attacked the Christian doctrine of forgiveness asking how churches could disapprove of gay people, ‘but then a guy can go murder 14 people, molest five kids, then go to f***ing prison, then accept God and he’s going to let him into heaven after the fact that he did all that s**t?’

‘That’s all horses**t to me, that don’t jive with me … I have some damned good friends who are gay and I’m absolutely for same-sex marriage.’

Austin has been credited as the most profitable wrestler in the history of the World Wresting Federation league and held 21 championships during his professional wrestling career.
