Minnesota Catholic Colleges Host NFL Same Sex Marriage Advocate

The College of St. Benedict and St. John's University's Institute for Women's Leadership is hosting same-sex marriage advocate Chris Kluwe this evening. Kluwe is a punter with the Minnesota Vikings. The University's official bulletin board advertises an event billed as the "Chris Kluwe Equality Program" tonight, May 2, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. taking place in the College of St. Benedict's Alumnae Hall.

Reads the announcement of the event:

"Within the past year, Chris Kluwe has been a vocal advocate for equality. Kluwe empowers us to take a stand and to be an ally for those who are oppressed and to be a living example and symbol for equality. Join us in a discussion with Chris Kluwe himself, about this important issue that affects us all."

Kluwe was recently awarded a Webby for his online Twitter account supporting same sex marriage, and is considered one of the foremost proponents of same sex marriage. He is one of approximately 20 athletes who have signed a “friend of the court” brief in favor of same sex marriage in a case being considered by the Supreme Court.

In September, Kluwe wrote a profane-laden open letter to Maryland state delegate Emmett C. Burns, Jr. (D-Baltimore) responding to a letter Burns had written to Baltimore Raven's owner Steve Bisciotti regarding player Brendon Ayanbadejo's support for Maryland's same-sex marriage initiative.
