Can I gay marry Chris Kluwe?

Chris Kluwe looking unimpressed.

Chris Kluwe is unimpressed by your bullshit.

He’s called out Matt Birk, and it’s every bit as wonderful as his first effort.

The second flaw is that you’re actually arguing in favor of same-sex marriage. If children having a stable home is the main crux of your concern, then denying gay couples the benefits of 1100 federal laws can only harm the children they will raise. Not allowing those children the same health benefits, family care benefits, survivor benefits; that can only be a detriment to the upbringing and care of a child, correct? Or do you propose that same-sex couples should be unfit for adoption, should be unfit to raise children?

Go read it.  The whole thing is an eloquent punt that sent Birk’s litany of shitty arguments out of the solar system.

Richard Wade summed it up best:

A football player tells me that heterosexual marriage is the only way to provide stability for children’s lives and for society, and he tells me that same sex marriage will cause instability to both those things.

Should I go to a sociologist to ask how the Ravens can improve their defense?

Well played, Mr. Wade.  Well played.
