After recieving a huge backlash for writing a letter to the owner of the Baltimore Ravens demanding that they reprimand Brendon Ayanbadejo for publicly endorsing gay marriage, Maryland delegate Emmett Burns, Jr. has now reversed his positiong and believes Ayanbadejo has the right to his beliefs.
Burns, a Baptist pastor, (say no more) was steaming mad when Ayanbadejo announced his support for the gay marriage law in Maryland. He wrote a letter to Ravens owner and demanded that Ayanbadejo be sanctioned and then the letter went viral and the shitz storm started. In response to Burns anti-gay letter, Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe wrote a letter that ferociously bitch slapped Burns. It was epic.
“P.S. I’ve also been vocal as hell about the issue of gay marriage so you can take your “I know of no other NFL player who has done what Mr. Ayanbadejo is doing” and shove it in your close-minded, totally lacking in empathy piehole and choke on it. Asshole.”
Burns has now seen the error of his ways:
“Upon reflection, he has his First Amendment rights,” Burns told the Baltimore Sun. “And I have my First Amendment rights.…Each of us has the right to speak our opinions. The football player and I have a right to speak our minds.”
