Chris Kluwe

Christopher James Kluwe is a former American Football punter with the Minnesota Vikings known for his liberal views, especially his strong support for gay marriage. In 2012, he wrote a profanity-laced open letter denouncing African-American Maryland state delegate Emmett C. Burns Jr. for supporting traditional marriage.[1] After Kluwe was released by the Vikings and then passed by the Oakland Raiders, he claimed it was because of his political activism; yet he has offered no proof.[2] A self-described agnostic, he has been named as one of the speakers at the 2014 national convention of American Atheists.[3]
