MS: “We believe everyone should have the right to get married…”
NM: “… just as we do.”
Please follow Michael Strahan on Twitter (@michaelstrahan) where he is already defending himself for making this video.
One of his followers (@saltman129) attacked his decision, Tweeting hateful, ignorant remarks in a string:
 @michaelstrahan How could you post a video depicting “marriage equality?” Do you even understand what you are promoting; what you are…  potentially helping to destroy? It’s unfortunate, that because you are a well-known athlete, folks are going to be  influenced by your words (oh the halo effect never fails). Please seriously think about what you are doing when voicing  your opinions such an important issue as marriage!  As much as you say this is your opinion; it’s about an objective truth that we are talking about…something God has made
To which Strahan—who’s Twitter bio line is, “If you have a life you dont have time to hate!!”—responded: @saltman129 You have ur opinion and I have mine!! I’m my own man so what I support is important to me. I respect ur opinion but mine differs
