Christian quarterback Tim Tebow told homosexuals to go “kill yourself” and “drink bleach”!
No. Tebow didn’t do that.
But if he did, we wouldn’t hear or see the end of it in the news. The screams of outrage would be deafening.
So why is it that the media aren’t telling us about pro-wrestler CM Punk (real name Philip Jack Brooks) telling supporters of traditional marriage to go “kill yourself” and “drink bleach”?
Ben Johnson reports for LifeSiteNews, May 9, 2012, that on WWE wrestling superstar C.M. Punk told his Twitter followers he opposed North Carolina’s 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 homo’s make me sick.” To which, Punk replied: “Kill yourself.” He also told another supporter of the nuclear family to “drink bleach.”
In another tweet, Punk castigated the amendment’s supporters as “So many stupid people. Bigots. Talking about what’s ‘natural.’” He also called the NC amendment “ridiculous” and that its supporters are “embarrassing” and should “evolve.”
Ironically, the intolerant and bigoted Punk later posted a message stating, “I am a star. I’m fighting bigots here. Zero tolerance.”
Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) told LifeSiteNews.com:
“Just chalk it up as the sort of rhetoric we’re used to now from the forces of tolerance. It just never stops. As ‘gay’ power grows, the rhetoric on the other side becomes more and more caustic and contemptuous of anybody who disagrees. If it was a conservative athlete who said to a pro-gay activist ‘kill yourself,’ I think his career would be over. Where are the voices of sanity on the liberal side that come down on these kind of things? I think the message is out on the Left: anything goes – especially if you’re bashing a Christian.”
Pro-marriage, pro-family advocates have have increasingly become the targets of verbal and sometimes physical bullying.
The “It Gets Better” anti-bullying 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.
Later Monday evening – after the wrestling federation’s anchor program Monday Night Raw – Punk issued an apology and deleted the offending remarks from his Twitter feed. But he still could not refrain from striking a supercilious pose: “I apologize. I don’t want you to kill yourself. I want you to better yourself.”
