Chris Kluwe Quits St. Paul Pioneer Press Over Marriage Equality Amendment Editorial
Note from GLAAD
Chris Kluwe has been an outspoken advocate for marriage equality in Minnesota, and now a critic of the paper that he used to blog for.
Chris Kluwe, Minnesota Vikings punter and outspoken proponent of marriage equality, has resigned as a contributor to the St. Paul Pioneer Press in the wake of the paper's editorial on the upcoming vote on Amendment 1, which, if passed, will embed inequality into the Minnesota state constitution.
The Pioneer Press' editorial likely rankled Kluwe in two ways. The editors go to great pains to criticize proponents of marriage equality. But this was the more forgivable problem. More important is the fact that they made their case in the most nonsensical way possible.
