Chris Kluwe, Minnesota Vikings Punter, Slammed By NOM's Damian Goddard For Gay Marriage Stance

Chris Kluwe's outspoken pro-marriage equality stance has won him accolades from a number of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights advocates -- but not everyone is feeling the love for the Minnesota Vikings Punter.

As Good as You blogger Jeremy Hooper originally reported, National Organization for Marriage's (NOM) Damian Goddard slams Kluwe as an "idiot kicker" who "uses bullying tactics" to promote LGBT rights in a bizarre new video.

"Kluwe...railroaded the institution of marriage," Goddard notes. Praising outspoken marriage equality opponents in the NFL, including Baltimore Ravens' Matt Birk, he continues, "So some folks took a sledgehammer to the institution of marriage on Nov. 6. Big deal! We know we're in for a fight, we've known all along."

He then concludes, "It's time to get 'smash-mouth' on marriage, figuratively speaking."
