So many of you may remember earlier this month when Minnesota Vikings punter (and UCLA Bruin) Chris Kluwe wrote one of the most awesome letters ever written to an anti-gay Maryland delegate in support of Baltimore Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo (also a UCLA Bruin) for his strong stance in support of gay marriage.
Well, Kluwe did it again. This time, in response to an anti-gay attorney who wrote an opinion piece in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
Latin is involved.
I read your opinion piece in today’s Star Tribune, and I would like to take a brief moment of time to offer you some assistance in your future writing endeavors. I can only assume that you’ve never been trained in classical logic, debate techniques, or basic empathy, so I will humbly offer my own meager knowledge in these fields as it relates to your literary masterpiece “Why same-sex marriage affects my marriage”.
You start off strong, with an opening salvo ostensibly promoting the rights of other groups to have their own views (if we ignore the fear-mongering tag line “The goal is to move society — in this case, away from a safe environment for children), but then, much like a Michael Bay plot, your argument starts careening off the rails. Your first mistake is what we would consider “mind projection fallacy” – where one considers the way he sees the world as the way the world really is.
