Charger rallies against gay marriage

San Diego Charger Jacques Cesaire (left) was a featured highlight yesterday at an anti-gay-marriage rally sponsored by iprotectmarriage.com, we have learned from Good As You blog. They have an audio recording of the event in which Cesaire and NFL free agent Akbar Gbaja-Biamila (right), brother of Packer Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila (KGB), encourage everyone in attendance to oppose same-sex marriage and vote Yes on Prop 8.

A couple takes of the spot were played during the event. The first spot:

Cesaire: Hi, I'm Jacques Cesaire, a professional football player, and I support Biblical marriage between a man and a woman.
Gbaja-Biamila: This election, vote Yes on Prop 8

And the second spot:

Gbaja-Biamila: Hi, I'm Akbar Gbaja-Biamila, and I support a Biblical marriage between a man and a woman.
Cesaire: And I'm Jacques Cesaire, a professional football player. This election, let's stand up for what we believe in.
Gbaja-Biamila: Yes on 8

After they speak, there is a presentation labeling Prop 8 as a "battle between light and darkness."

What's interesting is that Cesaire doesn't mention the San Diego Chargers or the NFL, but only that he is a pro football player. Unfortunately, I can't find the video to see if they tagged Cesaire as being a member of the Chargers.

According to the group's Web site, other sports figures appearing included skate pros Brian Sumner and Christian Hosoi, and Kyle Loza, a pro freestyle motocross rider and X Games gold medallist.
