Maryland State Delegate Emmett C. Burns Jr. wrote a letter to Baltimore Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti because earlier in the week Linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo spoke in favor of a Maryland ballot initiative that would legalize gay marriage. (See his awesome YouTube video.) Burns urged Bisciotti to "inhibit such expressions from your employee."
Well, Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe has a thing or two to say to Burns.
READ IT ON DEADSPIN.
It's awesome, and includes lots of paragraphs like this:
…the mental gymnastics your brain has to tortuously contort itself through to make such a preposterous statement are surely worthy of an Olympic gold medal (the Russian judge gives you a 10 for "beautiful oppressionism").
How does gay marriage, in any way shape or form, affect your life? If gay marriage becomes legal, are you worried that all of a sudden you'll start thinking about penis? "Oh shit. Gay marriage just passed. Gotta get me some of that hot dong action!"
Chris Kluwe is my new favorite football player.
