Scott Fujita Boldly Supports Same-Sex Marriage

Back in April Baltimore Ravens Pro-Bowl linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo took a bold stance and said this, among other things, in an article he wrote for the Huffington Post:

But now here in 2009 same sex marriages are prohibited. I think we will look back in 10, 20, 30 years and be amazed that gays and lesbians did not have the same rights as every one else.

Saints linebacker Scott Fujita agrees.

Yesterday, Fujita responded to Ayanbadejo's words when he was quoted in an article written by Dave Zirin of The Nation.

I hope he's right in his prediction, and I hope even more that it doesn't take that long. People could look at this issue without blinders on...the blinders imposed by their church, their parents, their friends or, in our case, their coaches and locker rooms. Fujita continued, "I wish they would realize that it's not a religion issue. It's not a government issue. It's not even a gay/straight issue or a question of your manhood. It's a human issue. And until more people see that, we're stuck arguing with people who don't have an argument.    

Pretty gutsy stuff from both of these players.
