Chris Kluwe

Chris Kluwe, punter for the Minnesota Vikings has come out in support of same-sex marriage in Maryland. In response to state delegate Emmett C. Burns who wrote to Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti to tell him to “inhibit such expressions from your employee,” Kluwe wrote in a letter, “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. They won’t even overthrow the government in an orgy of hedonistic debauchery because all of a sudden they have the same legal rights as the other 90 percent of our population—rights like Social Security benefits, child care tax credits, Family and Medical Leave to take care of loved ones, and COBRA healthcare for spouses and children. You know what having these rights will make gays? Full-fledged American citizens just like everyone else, with the freedom to pursue happiness and all that entails. Do the civil-rights struggles of the past 200 years mean absolutely nothing to you?”
