Ravens LB Ayanbadejo Thrilled Maryland Voted “Yes” on Same Sex Marriage

Tuesday night was election night all across the country, and in Maryland, voters voted in favor of same sex marriage. One NFL player that plays in Maryland was thrilled with the result.

That player is Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo, who stated on Wednesday “It’s like I woke up and it’s Christmas.”

Another Ravens player was against the result of the vote, that being safety Bernard Pollard. “There are a lot of guys on this team that stand firmly behind what the Bible says — that a man marries a woman and a woman marries a man.”

Before Tuesday, gays and lesbians had been granted the right to marry by courts and state legislatures, but proponents of gay marriage had been defeated at the polls in more than 30 states.

Ayanbadejo spoke out in favor of same-sex marriage on several occasions, and Maryland voters agreed by a narrow margin.
