Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe on Friday called for the repeal of constitutional gay marriage bans in 31 states.

Appearing on the Stephanie Miller Show, Miller thanked Kluwe, most likely the NFL's most supportive player on the issue of marriage equality, for advocating against a proposed ban in Minnesota which failed Tuesday at the polls.

“I have to tell you, I know so many people have thanked you, but you have had such a big part in that because I think … those are the moments when people go, 'Oh my favorite football player,' 'My favorite this or that,'” Millers said. “And again the fact that you're a straight ally. And you're somebody who has no compunction about just standing up for what's right in what is considered this very macho sport, right?”

“Ideally, we get to a point where we don't have to have a single person talking out because everyone is talking out. … It shouldn't be news when someone speaks out for equality, it should be news when someone speaks out against it,” Kluwe answered.

Later, Kluwe said such bans in other states needed to be repealed. (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
