Kluwe

 

Today on Deadspin Chris Kluwe, former punter for the Minnesota Vikings, alleged he was cut due to his outspoken views supporting marriage equality.

I’m not a huge sports fan, but I am a huge Kluwe fan, I follow him on twitter @chriswarcraft, and I listen to him when he gives interviews.  He is well spoken, self aware, and intelligent.  The Nerdist Podcast did a great interview with him where you really get a great insight into him, outside of football, and how he views his life after football.

Living here in Minnesota, Kluwe’s letter to a Maryland state delgate is a wonderful read for those of us who cannot fathom a logic argument, outside of bigotry, as to why marriage equality isn’t universal.

So take a few moments to read Kluwe’s two letters.  This man is a vocal ally who put his career on the line for the causes of his fellow humans.
