Del. Emmett Burns to Baltimore Ravens: silence Brendon Ayanbadejo

Wow. Del. Emmett Burns (D-Baltimore County), an opponent of same-sex marriage, fired off a letter to the owner [PDF] of the Baltimore Ravens on legislative stationery demanding that he silence Brendon Ayanbadejo, an outspoken marriage advocate. Pretty much every conservative commentator in America (properly) denounced the Boston mayor and Chicago alderman for menacing Chick-Fil-A. I hope some of them will speak up against this abuse of government office as well. [NBC Sports Pro Football Talk][cross-posted from Overlawyered]

  1. That’s unbelievably arrogant of Burns to do, but unsurprising.

    He conveniently forgot all the Ravens fans who support the Civil Marriage Protection Act and insulted those in his district and all through the state of Maryland who are demanding that their families be recognized with the rights and responsibilities of marriage just like every family who is headed by a married, heterosexual couple.
