Chris Kluwe of the Minnesota Vikings reached out to Matt Birk of the Baltimore Ravens and to over 20 members of congress to debate the MN Marriage Amendment, (which would make gay marriage in Minnesota unconstitutional). Chris is an outspoken opponent of the amendment. Matt and the 20 others are for the amendment. Nobody took Chris up on the offer, so he debated a chair at the Brave New Workship in Minneapolis. Chris was asked to challenge Matt Birk and the others by the Tom Barnard Podcast. Tom Barnard, (a local radio legend, #1 for 27 years in Minneapolis, MN) moderated the debate. www.tombarnardpodcast.com to hear other great guests. @radiotombarnard to tweet Tom and @ChrisWarcraft to tweet Chris Kluwe.
After over twenty unsuccessful attempts to procure an opponent for his much-anticipated debate, Chris Kluwe (@ChrisWarcraft) eventually had to settle for a debate against an empty chair who was fed real, verbatim arguments from various proponents of the new amendment to declare gay marriage unconstitutional. These lines as well as the whole event were delivered and hosted by Brave New Workshop in Minneapolis. Watch the Chris Kluwe Vs. The Chair debate in HD at this link: http://www.tombarnardpodcast.com/chris-kluwe-vs-the-chair/
