On Tuesday night's Colbert Report, host Stephen Colbert interviewed Minnesota Vikings "professional surrenderer" (also known as punter) Chris Kluwe, who has been an outspoken supporter of marriage equality.
Kluwe rose to prominence after eviscerating Maryland politician Emmet B. Burns Jr. for trying to silence a Baltimore Ravens player's support of marriage equality. In that letter, Kluwe called the freedom-stifling pol a "narcissistic fromunda" who thinks gay marriage will turn him into a "lustful cockmonster."
Colbert asked Kluwe why he was so outspoken on the issue, since as a football player, he "lives 1,000 miles from gay."
"I firmly believe that people are people, and deserve to be treated the same as everyone else," Kluwe said.
Kluwe also noted that since the defeat of an anti-gay marriage amendment in Minnesota, he's "seen zero cockmosters running around the streets of Minneapolis."
