Baltimore Ravens Center Matt Birk Appears in Heinous Ad Opposing Marriage Equality in Maryland: VIDEO

Ad_birk

Baltimore Ravens Center Matt Birk tells voters to oppose Question 6, which would put the state's legislatively-passed marriage equality bill into effect in a new ad for the Maryland Marriage Alliance, which was uploaded to YouTube by the Maryland Catholic Conference.

Says Birk in the ad (my transcript):

"Marriage is not easy. but it has lasted throughout he ages as an honored institution because it provides unique foundations for societies and children. Marriage is more than what adults want for themselves. It is also about the next generation. Marriage is and should remain between a man and a woman. Gay and lesbian couples already receive benefits in Maryland, like hospital visitation, state health benefits, and tax breaks. They don't need to redefine marriage."

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

  2. The guy is a bigot. The Baltimore Ravens should drop him as quickly as possible.

  3. "Marriage is not easy. but it has lasted throughout he ages as an honored institution because it provides unique foundations for societies and children."

    Is that why, for centuries, we had polygamy? Is that why, for centuries, wives were their husbands property?

    "Marriage is more than what adults want for themselves. It is also about the next generation."

    Do the nearly 2M children raised by LGBT couples not matter? Are they not part of the next generation?


    "Marriage is and should remain between a man and a woman. Gay and lesbian couples already receive benefits in Maryland, like hospital visitation, state health benefits, and tax breaks."

    How about immigration? How about estate taxes? How about federal level benefits?


    "They don't need to redefine marriage."

    A definition occurs when one meaning is replaced with another. The bigots get to keep everything about their marriages. We're just added a footnote.

    Looks like someone takes too many hits to the helmet. Maybe that's why the punter has the most logic.

  6. Why is it always the ugly ones that are opposed to equality? Quick, someone put up some more photos of Ayanbadejo. STAT

  7. go to his facebook page and send him a message

  8. He has a charity for kids which sounds prety good actually. I just sent a contact requesting if they accepted children of same-sex couples despite the foundation namesakes recent stance against equal rights.

    Still amazing that they use "traditional marriage" as a serious argument. Fools.

  9. "Marriage is not easy. but it has lasted throughout the ages as an honored institution .."

  10. of course, voting and comments have been disabled. poor NOM.

    Posted by: LittleKiwi | Oct 5, 2012 3:12:03 PM


  11. Why do they always have to say he was NFL's Man of the Year? He's no man in my book.

    Posted by: Jack M | Oct 5, 2012 3:20:12 PM


  12. Sounds like NOM went on the hunt in Baltimore and found a bigot. Think he just might be a bit jealous of the attention other players have received.

  13. He's standing in front of what looks like a large multi-colored penis.

  14. As someone has already pointed out, let's compare him to Ayanbadejo.

    As usual, homophobes are ALWAYS the most unattractive guys who would never, ever, have a chance with other men and do we wonder why they're so against men hooking up with other men? Tony Perkins? Bryan Fischer? Fred Phelps?

    There is a definite link between how much a man hates gay men and how quickly that gay man would turn him down.

  17. What is the end game for these bigots? Do they honestly think if the marriage bill is defeated, all gays and lesbians will close up shop, dissolve their relationships, and turn straight? No matter what, gays and lesbians are going to be together, they are going to raise children, and they are going to live their lives as best they can.

  18. Oh, I left a message but then noticed there were only ones that were praising him minus the most recent couple of ones. It's not hard to figure out they're deleting the ones slamming him.

    Odd how they're all about free speech except for the speech they don't agree with.

    Posted by: Michael | Oct 5, 2012 4:06:11 PM


  19. Michael, that's usually the case. They love to play the victims. Honestly, if I hear one more bigot complain about being called out as a bigot I am going to scream.

    Posted by: KT | Oct 5, 2012 4:12:02 PM


  20. Hey, here's the proof they're deleting FB comments:

    On the most recent picture, the one they're using for the FB banner, it indicates there are 13 comments but when you go to read them only 3 are showing up.

    Posted by: Michael | Oct 5, 2012 4:25:41 PM


  21. Surely Maryland Delegate Burns will be writing to the Ravens owner to silence this man, since Birk is mixing football with politics? Yeah, I didn't think so.

    Posted by: JohnAGJ | Oct 5, 2012 5:13:20 PM


  22. My god his looks just scream I'm a jerk off don't they?

  23. The guy is a bigot. The Baltimore Ravens should drop him as quickly as possible.
    Posted by: OS2Guy | Oct 5, 2012 2:17:11 PM
    THAT MAKES US NO BETTER THAN HIM -- if you mean "the Ravens should admonish him that he reflecting badly on the team, which may violate his contract" -- OK, that is a reasonable thought

  24. "an honored institution"? What is the straight marriage divorce rate these days? 50%. Yep, a real honored institution there buddy.
