NFL punter kicks Maryland politician around over gay marriage

Baltimore Raven’s linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo is a vocal supporter of gay marriage so recently bad Democrat Emmett Burns wrote a letter to Ayanbadejo’s boss telling him to keep Ayanbedjo quiet. Minnesota Viking punter Chris Kluwe heard about this and took to Deadspin to eviscerate Burns for his wrong-hearted actions.

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.
