08:31 AM ET 05.25 | With Chris Kluwe's departure to Oakland, it seems like eons since any of the Minnesota Vikings have weighed in with their views on the hot button issue of gay marriage. Thankfully, Adrian Peterson has filled the void. The NFL MVP said "I'm not with that" when the conversation turned to same-sex marriage during a Thursday interview on Sirius/XM NFL satellite radio. The star running back was asked by hosts Bruce Murray and Amani Toomer whether he thought the Vikings cut their longtime punter because of his vocal support of gay marriage. And as he so often does with tacklers, he took the issue head on. "To each his own. I'm not with it," Peterson said. "But I have relatives that, you know, ****. I'm not biased towards them. I still treat them the same. I love them. But again, I'm not with that. That's not something that I believe in. But to each his own." Peterson said he saw no ulterior motives in the release of Kluwe. "I'm sure the Vikings' organization did not release him based on that," Peterson said. "They know Kluwe. They've been knowing him for a long time. They know he's outspoken."

OK, but who cares? Would reporters stop asking the stupid question, please. If it comes up? Fine. Same with any celebrities on their politics. who cares?

So to the current generation of media, sexual preference is a sports question. I guess if you've flunked out of tollbooth school, the bars not too high in journalism.
