I read something today that makes me feel all kinds of happy. Recently Brendon Ayanbadejo, a Baltimore Ravens linebacker, spoke out in favor of a ballot that would legalize gay marriage in Maryland. Then a Maryland state delegate named Emmett C Burns, Jr tried to shush him.
So Chris Kluwe, another NFL player in the Minnesota Vikings, speaks out with a harsh scathing letter that I feel really puts Burns in his place. The full letter is here, and you should read it, but here is one awesome pull-quote to entice you to read the rest:
“I can assure you that gay people getting married will have zero effect on your life. They won’t come into your house and steal your children. They won’t magically turn you into a lustful cockmonster.” – Chris Kluwe
They may always frustrate me in the play-offs, but stuff like this makes me incredibly happy to be a Vikings fan!
