NFL Man of the Year, Ravens star Matt Birk defends traditional marriage
Debate in Minnesota on protecting traditional marriage is heating up as the November 6th vote to amend the constitution to affirm marriage as the union of one man and one woman looms and a court case to redefine marriage is underway. In the wake of Ravens’ linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo and Vikings punter Chris Kluwe stumping for gay ‘marriage’, one of their teammates, the top dog in the NFL for 2012, has taken up a public defense of the family.
In a new online video launched by the Minnesota Catholic Conference (MCC), NFL all-pro Matt Birk discusses his belief in marriage as between a man and a woman, and its importance as a cornerstone social institution.
“My hope is that, by adding my voice to this discussion, I encourage the majority of Americans who do agree that it’s not the state’s place to redefine marriage to speak up with truth and respect,” said Birk. “Bonding one man and one woman together through marriage helps connect both moms and dads to their kids; that’s why the state cares about marriage in the first place. Society should always be looking for ways to strengthen marriage, rather than redefine it.”
