NFL Player Speaks For Gay Marriage

I am very happy today to be able to post another rare example of true ‘Sportsmanlike conduct’ – a professional athlete acting as a gentleman and a actual role model and hero.

NFL player Brendon Ayanbadejo, a linebacker for the Baltimore Ravens, has stepped up in support of legalizing gay marriage in Maryland. In a profession that subdues personal opinion, and when there are opinions they usually are ridiculous, it is refreshing to see someone stand up for something – especially a ‘taboo’ subject. In a homophobic setting his courage to speak out is a great example.

He says:

“Gay and lesbian couples want to marry for similar reasons as we all do: love and commitment. It’s time to allow them the opportunity to build a family through marriage. It’s a matter of fairness.”

You can view his complete inspiring and coherent statement here:
