Several NFL players join cause to support Kluwe, Ayanbadejo brief on same-sex marriage
The push among NFL players for legalized same-sex marriage has grown a lot bigger than Chris Kluwe and Brendon Ayanbadejo. Several other NFL players are joining up to support the Vikings punter and the Ravens linebacker in a legal brief in favor of marriage equality, according to ProFootballTalk.
The brief, sent to the United States Supreme Court, argues for legalized same-sex marriage as the Court hears arguments regarding California's Proposition 8, which banned same-sex marriage in the state.
"Brendon and I have emphasized all along that athletes have a special message when it comes to welcoming others as friends and teammates, without regard for their sexual orientation — we’ve made that point before in some unique ways, and we felt we had a special perspective to offer the Court in a very serious case about equality," Kluwe said in a press release.
