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"
