WATCH: Chris Kluwe's CNN Interview Defending Same-Sex Marriage

By: Scott Ragan

Minnesota Vikings punter and Out cover boy Chris Kluwe appeared on CNN this weekend and continued his bold (and much appreciated) effort to support legalizing same-sex marriage.

Kluwe told CNN reporter Poppy Harlow, "The fact is there are American citizens who pay taxes, who serve in our military and defend this country, and they are not benefiting under the same legal protections and laws that the rest of us are. To me, that is flat out discrimination. That's the same as segregation or suffrage."

Watch the CNN interview below as Kluwe talks about his other hot button issues including campaign finance, higher taxes for the wealthy, and whether or not the NFL is truly ready for an openly gay player.
