Maryland state delegate Emmett C. Burns, Jr. recently sent a letter to Baltimore Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti, in an attempt to discourage linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo's support of a state ballot initiative that would legalize gay marriage.
The letter didn't sit well with Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe, who unleashed an all-out, expletive-laden blitz attacking Mr. Burns' proclivities:
If gay marriage becomes legal, are you worried that all of a sudden you'll start thinking about penis? "Oh sh*t. Gay marriage just passed. Gotta get me some of that hot dong action!" Will all of your friends suddenly turn gay and refuse to come to your Sunday Ticket grill-outs? (Unlikely, since gay people enjoy watching football too.)
DC has revealed that a major character is soon going to come out as gay, while Marvel announced the engagement of superhero Northstar to his boyfriend, Kyle.
These events don't sit will with One Million Moms, whose anti-gay agenda has also led them to protest the wedding of Archie Comics' first gay character, Kevin Keller.
"Children desire to be just like superheroes," said the group in a statement. "Children mimic superhero actions and even dress up in costumes to resemble these characters as much as possible. Can you imagine little boys saying, 'I want a boyfriend or husband like X-Men?'"
The statement goes on to accuse the publishers of trying to "indoctrate [sic] impressionable young minds."
Marvel and DC have yet to respond to the homophobic comments.
GleeBest In Show star Jane Lynch narrates President Obama's latest spot, in which he speaks to "Don't Ask Don't Tell," his support of marriage equality, and what's at stake for the LGBT community in November: "You're going to need a strong advocate in the White House. I am that strong advocate. I am that strong advocate."
Late yesterday, the NAACP announced that the organization was endorsing same-sex marriage via their Twitter. Historically, most African-Americans have been conservative regarding gay marriage, but with strong support from the likes of President Obama, data shows that support has increased over the last year.
