Cristiano Ronaldo is for gay marriage

Soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo was asked how he felt about Portugal legalizing same-sex marriage:

The Portuguese man that I am, I try to keep informed about what is happening in my country. I know the law was passed and the comment it deserves is that we must respect the choices made by anyone, because, after all, all citizens should have the exact same rights and responsibilities.

Not sure which "choice" he's talking about, but I'll give him the benefit of the doubt that he meant the choice to marry whomever someone chooses.
