Today the Maryland Marriage Alliance released the first of a series of on-line videos featuring Matt Birk, Center for the Baltimore Ravens.

"We applaud Matt's decision to speak out and support marriage as a union between one man and one woman," said Derek McCoy Chairman of the Maryland Marriage Alliance, "Matt's views are held not only by the vast majority of Catholics, but also by most Americans."
Birk a Harvard graduate was drafted into the NFL in 1998 and began his career with the Minnesota Vikings.   In 2012, he was named NFL Man of the Year.
