Catholic Church's new anti-marriage equality spokesman gets challenged on his points

Matt Birk, Baltimore Ravens Center, Makes Anti-Gay Marriage Ad For Catholic Church - Yesterday, Mr. Birk wrote an editorial and I recognized NOM terminology. Today, he makes a video for the Catholic Church (who many think is funding NOM.) Looks like the organization has found their new spokesmodel. HOWEVER, he isn't going unchallenged:

 Kirk's stance quickly drew a response from Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe, who has since been in talks with Minnesotans for Equality, a Minnesota-based LGBT rights advocacy group urging voters to beat back the state's ballot initiative that could ban marriage for gays and lesbians in the state constitution this November.

Acknowledging Birk as "a smart, funny person," Kluwe notes, "If you want us to understand why same-sex marriage is bad for kids, you need to provide some sort of substantial evidence. Tell us that children from same-sex couples are more likely to grow up broke and miserable and alone and will end their days starving in a gutter."

In other words, when folks like Birk go on about the "special relationship between a husband and wife" and misdirect the argument about a supposed fear of being "labeled as bigots," they conveniently omit the following:
