Minnesota Viking Punter Chris Kluwe has sent out over ten letters to local politicians and proponents of the marriage amendment, asking for the opportunity for a public debate on Friday, October 19th, with local radio host Tom Barnard set as the moderator. The debate is set to take place at the Brave New Workshop who will adhere to their motto of Promiscuous Hostility, Positive Neutrality.
After State House Representative Mary Franson attacked Kluwe's character by categorizing him as an opponent for traditional values, his quest for a debate ensued. Debate invites have gone out to Representative Mary Franson, Keith Downey, Kurt Daudt, Mary Kiffmeyer, Steve Drazkowski, Steve Gottwalt and Senators Mike Perry, Kurt Bills, David Hann and Michelle Bachmann. In addition a request letter to Minnesotans For Marriage, the official committee supporting the marriage amendment, was sent to the attention of Chairman John Helmberger and Campaign Manager Andy Parrish.
"I would like to debate any and all politicians who are interested in passing the Minnesota marriage amendment so I can finally get a logical reason why we should discriminate against American citizens," said Chris Kluwe.
