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


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."

  1. Matt Birk must be open to seduction by a man if he thinks homosexual marriage might interfere with his heterosexual marriage. Is there something you want to tell us, Matt?

  4. The other thing about Matt is that his hair is the color of a twinky.

  5. NOM's latest mouthpiece. Man, they are getting DESPERATE if they have to recruit the Ginger Bigot from Baltimore. This guy can't hold a candle to Chris Kluwe.

    Again, we are winning this fight.

  6. Birk,

    Two men or two women who love each other
    and have their relationship recognized by
    civil law. Your religious beliefs have
    no weight or say so on how our goverment grants equal rights to citizens. Gay marriage will be legalized in Maryland soon.

  7. He's just a berk!

    I'm always puzzled by heterosexual men who've such an interest in gay sex/ gay marriage etc., and I'd guess most straight men r-e-a-l-ly don't think about "men" that much. Surely, the rationale of a dumb jock would stretch to, "hey if these guys are all gay, there's more gals for me and I'm ok with that"

  8. Pay attention to the "Holy Spirit" ugliness hanging on the wall behind him. This guy is a complete tool of and shill for the Roman Catholic Church. He couldn't have an original thought for himself as much as he could paternalistically allow his wife to use contraceptives. What's he up to now, six kids? That means he's been "man enough" to only complete coitus six times during their Roman Catholic dominated marriage. Why not a bun in the oven every nine months, Matt? Isn't that your God's demand? Or, can you only tolerate "it" every so often?

  9. Sadly one must now go to their scuzzy website to see this bigot's ad for the bigots. Hateful man. Butt-ugly, too.

  10. It didn't offend me, but it wasn't an intelligent argument against expanding the scope of marriage laws to include gay couples. His only reason is basically "this is how it has always been."

    Well, the 19th Amendment expanded the scope of the voting laws to inclued women and that's kind of worked out for us as a society hasn't it?

  11. Has anyone noticed that the most oppressive Countries in the world are those where the local Religion is in command? It is not just Gays that they are against; Their primary targets are Woman. Has anyone looked into exactly what the real role of wives and daughters are in their daily lives in some of the devout religions practiced right here in the United States?

  12. Decades from now Matt Birk's grand children will look at him the way we look at George Wallace and the white racists and segregationists today. Just like all of those who oppose the gradual but certain move toward human equality, Matt is on the wrong side of history.
