Super Bowl winning Baltimore Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo has long been a vocal supporter of marriage equality and gay rights. In his recent interview on CNN, posted below, he talks about masculinity in football, the importance of players like him allying with the GLBT community, and the separation of church and state.

Watching the clip makes me wonder how much longer the already veteran footballer will continue to play the game. It seems like he’s already primed for a distinguished career of activism, if not politics.
