Kudos to Matt Birk! The former Baltimore Ravens center turned down an invitation to the White House to celebrate the team's Super Bowl victory. When asked why he wasn't there, Birk told a sports blog:
Birk has been outspoken about his faith and support for traditional values in the past. When a fellow Ravens teammate endorsed same-sex marriage last year, Birk spoke up for normal marriage. The Minnesota native also publicly endorsed the Minnesota marriage amendment.
