Vikings punter Chris Kluwe has quit his popular Out of Bounds blog in the Pioneer Press after the newspaper wrote an editorial that did not formally “endorse” the marriage amendment but laid out a case for supporting it.
Minnesota residents will vote Tuesday on the state constitutional amendment that would effectively ban gay marriage by defining marriage as between a man and woman. Kluwe has been an outspoken opponent of the amendment, and he was ticked at the Pioneer Press, which became the state’s first newspaper to editorialize in favor of the amendment, MinnPost noted.
He announced the development on Twitter:
Sent my email to the @pioneerpress informing them I will no longer contribute to their blog network. It will be my last post on the site.
