Vikings Punter Chris Kluwe Speaks Out Against Minnesota's Anti-Gay Marriage Amendment in New Ad: VIDEO


Vikings punter Chris Kluwe urges Minnesotans to vote down the constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage appearing on the ballot there in November, telling voters, "that's not what America stands for."

Says Kluwe: "If you’re telling someone how to live their life, you wouldn’t want someone telling you how to live your life."

  2. Kluwe, you have permission to have as many babies as humanly possible. For real. You're what a father should be. ROCK ON.

  3. Wouldn't it be great if Chris Kluwe and Zack Wahls eventually run for office?

  5. @ ROBERT :
    I totally agree.

    Just as clear, distinct, forthright as Zack Wahls; they have no edges or bitterness or religious baggage of self righteousness.
    Kluwe is right; it's the younger generation which will sweep away the hang-ups of the old farts.

  6. UNFORTUNATELY, even if the amendment is defeated, marriage equality will not exist in Minnesota, since it is illegal presently, anyhow.
    As of today, I am thinking WA is 4:3 for equality, ME a hair less, MD in doubt, and MN not looking great.

  9. I'm so glad we have new stars like this who are speaking out for us. Some of our so-called allies like Roseanne Barr SAY they support us but they actually do the OPPOSITE and cause us harm.

    Right now we have Roseanne running for President trying to split the Obama vote to help Romney win. I guess a Romney victory will be a win-win for her - she gets to step out of her millionaire boredom and satisfy her craving for attention at the same time as ensuring a victory for Romney which will result in tax breaks for millionaire Roseanne.

    Who needs enemies when we have "friends" like self absorbed Roseanne - willing to put the needs of millions above her own, selfish need for more attention.

    THANK YOU CHRIS ! It's great to see someone with money, fame AND integrity.

  13. This man has a great head on his shoulders. And on that head is a beautiful smile and a beautiful mane. I wish I had his hair.

  14. I really admire this guy. He is intelligent and sensible,as well as gorgeous with a great head of hair.

    Still, i have to note that he used the term 'heterosexual' rather than 'straight.' And he said it as though that is the word that he typically uses for opposite-sex preference.

  15. Hi,

    I am a producer for the Emmy nominated NFL Network and series "The NFL Season: A Biography." This week I produced a story about the Baltimore Ravens' LB Brendon Ayanbadejo and other players speaking out about same-sex marriage. Would love it if you all watched and maybe shared the link:
