Chris Kluwe video: Opposing gay marriage 'not what America stands for'

Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe continues to be a vocal advocate for same-sex marriage and the fight against a Minnesota ballot imitative that would constitutionally ban such unions in the state. He has released a powerful video arguing the case as one for freedom and families.

"If you're telling someone how to live their life, you wouldn't want someone telling you how to live your life," he says in the video for Minnesotans United, which is fighting the November ballot measure. "It's not the government's job to tell us what to do. That's not what America stands for. At the end of the day, this is an issue about freedom."
