Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Donte' Stallworth sent a series of messages from his Twitter account to support gay rights and same sex marriage, as well as criticize anti-gay politicians.
Some of the messages that Stallworth sent to his 67,000 thousand followers:
These politicians that use religion to deter gay marriage are same ones doing dirty under the table ish & war mongering #WheresYourReligion
Wanda Sykes: "If you don't believe in same sex marriage, don't marry the same sex." #EnoughSaid
Stallworth also tweeted his support to CNN's Don Lemon, who recently came out publicly this week. "Lots of courage you have my brother... Live your life the way it makes YOU happy! @donlemoncnn #GodBless."
Stallworth is the third member of the team to publicly come out for LGBT rights and marriage equality. Former Ravens safety Will Demps voiced his support in 2006 before he was traded to Houston. Since 2009, teammate Brendon Ayanbadejo has been a vocal ally for LGBT rights and marriage equlity.
