It’s very interesting how gay marriage seems to coincide with Super Bowl winners. Let’s start by congratulating the Baltimore Ravens on their win.
We don’t think it is totally coincidental that gay marriage passed this year in Maryland & then The Ravens won the Super Bowl. Let’s go back a few years to 2004 when gay marriage became the law in Massachusetts. That year the New England Patriots won the Super Bowl following the Boston Red Sox winning the World Series for the first time in 80 years. (Finally breaking the curse that everyone believes was caused by trading Babe Ruth to the New York Yankees.)
Then New York passed gay marriage in July of 2011 & last year the New York Giants were the Super Bowl Champions. Two weeks ago when watching the playoffs between NE & Baltimore I couldn’t help being moved by the fact that both of these teams represented states where marriage equality is the law. It was Baltimore’s time to win. Then there was last week’s anti gay slurs by San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver. There is something to karma & negative energy in these situations. Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo, a fierce advocate for gay marriage, said he wasn’t surprised by that type of narrow-minded thinking stating, “I think in San Francisco & being from the Bay Area myself, we really try to preach love & acceptance of everybody. I couldn’t really say anything negative to the young man. It’s just one of those things you have to live & you have to learn. In the words of Martin Luther King, ‘You can’t fight hate with hate. You have to fight hate with love.” We believe that being on the right side of history also has its rewards. So what do you think about this theory? Let us know. Updates to Come…:)
