Minnesota Viking punter Chris Kluwe, like Baltimore Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo, is an advocate for LGBT rights and marriage equality. He has recorded three radio ads for Minnesotans for Equality, the group fighting a November ballot that would constitutionally define marriage as opposite sex only.

Listen to one of Kluwe's radio ads here.

Now, Kluwe, in the form of an extremely colorful letter, is coming out against Maryland lawmaker Emmett C. Burns, who this week urged Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti to silence Ayanbadejo from speaking his mind on gay rights.
