Scott Fujita Supports Marriage Equality (VIDEO)

 

Super Bowl champion Scott Fujita has added his voice to the Human Rights Campaign’s Americans for Marriage Equality video series.

In the 30-second spot the Cleveland Browns linebacker delivers the message: “I’ve been married for 12 years and I know that it is unfair to keep other loving and committed couples from getting married and protecting their families.”

Watch below:

According to the HRC blog, Fujita’s ad is the seventh in the campaign.

Newark Mayor Cory Booker  kicked off the series followed by Oscar winner Mo’Nique, civil rights legend Julian Bond, Emmy Award winner John Leguizamo, acclaimed Broadway playwright Katori Hall, and The Good Wife’s Josh Charles.

This follows HRC’s New Yorker’s for Marriage Equality series that ran earlier this year in the run-up to the New York Legislature legalizing marriage equality in the state.

It goes to show that heroes can come out of football, like, Scott Fujita. You married?

At a time when we are infuriated by Jerry Sandusky and Fine, for abusing the boys whose father's are out to lunch or dead, to protect these young boys from sick monsters that disguise themselves as mentors and friends, but are anything but nightmares in an innocent boy's dreams.

If Jerry Sandusky was sexually abused by some other adults, he should get mental therapy, when they lock him up for the rest of his short life in prison. If he was sexually abused also, I feel for him, but he had a change to decide if he wanted to condinue to molest young boys or get help, when one of the mothers asked to stop showering with young boys.

I hope all boys or young men, come out and tell their stories, not only about Jerry Sandusky but all other males and females, that abused them in schools, colleges and universities, homes or anyplace that serve as personal prisons to all the boys under the control of the men.

More celebrities need to be secure enough in their own skin to be able to stand up for their convictions. When a sports figure does this, it makes it just a little bit harder for the bullies of the world to make fun of those perceived as different. It is becoming cooler to be tolerant. Love and tolerance and two of my favorite mantras!
