    That's an interesting link. I didn't know about Irvin's background/family. It is nice to see him take a stand on this, IMO.

    Well duh Michael. Only those living in the stone ages don’t believe in marriage equality.

    I guess he did it, in part, in support of his brother who passed away a few years back.

    Good on ya, Mike.

    Polls routinely show that 45-55% of America is against gay marriage. All but six states do not recognize same-sex marriages. To say that most are for marriage equality is, sadly, false.

    This poll says 53% of Americans are in support of gay marriage. America is moving in the right direction but still has a lot more work to do with regards to gay rights, woman rights, racsim and equality rights.

    Good for him. He did address Aikman by the way:

    "I didn't think Troy was gay, but even if he had been, I think we could have handled it. Would it have affected the team? No sir. I was going to make sure of that."
