Yes, you read that headline right. John Rocker, who in 1999 became the poster child for homophobic athletes, told Politico that he doesn't have the right to oppose same-sex marriage:
Am I someone that thinks that I have the right to sit back and judge someone that I don’t know, will never meet, on how they should live their life or what rights they can have to live their life the way they want to? I don’t think I deserve that responsibility.
I never imagined I'd say these words, but: If only everyone felt the same way about same-sex marriage as John Rocker does.
