Ayanbadejo owes an apology

Mike Preston should give the Ravens' Brendon Ayanbadejo an "F" for sensitivity ("Brendon Ayanbadejo on same-sex marriage passing: 'I'm so stoked, it's like I woke up and it was Christmas,'" Nov. 7).

It is insensitive that Mr. Ayanbadejo would compare the passing of same-sex marriage to the religious celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.

Compare it to your birthday. Compare it to the morning after a big Ravens victory. But comparing it to a holy day is a ridicule to many of the opponents of Question 6.

To be clear, I did not vote for Question 6. I do understand the position of those who did. I am not challenging that debate here. I cherish our democracy and respect its process.

On the football field, excessive taunting would cost 15 yards. Off the football field, a simple apology would do.
