Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker calls out Biden’s abortion stance during Kansas speech

Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker criticized President Joe Biden’s position on abortion during a commencement speech at Benedictine College in Atchison, Kan., on Saturday. He specifically pointed to Biden’s “delusional” stance on abortion as a member of the Catholic faith.

“He has been so vocal in his support for the murder of innocent babies that I’m sure to many people it appears that you can be both Catholic and pro-choice,” Butker said. “He is not alone. From the man behind the COVID lockdowns to the people pushing dangerous gender ideologies onto the youth of America, they all have a glaring thing in common — they are Catholic. This is an important reminder that being Catholic alone doesn’t cut it.”

Butker encouraged the graduates to understand and “stop pretending that the Church of Nice is a winning proposal” and to “never mistake charity for cowardice.”

“The world around us says that we should keep our beliefs to ourselves whenever they go against the tyranny of diversity, equity and inclusion,” he said. “We fear speaking truth, because now, unfortunately, truth is in the minority.”

Butker also hit out at Biden over “poor leadership” that had “negatively affected” their lives.

“While COVID might have played a large role throughout your formative years, it is not unique,” he said “The bad policies and poor leadership have negatively impacted major life issues. Things like abortion, IVF, surrogacy, euthanasia, as well as a growing support for the degenerate cultural values and media all stem from pervasiveness of disorder.”

Butker also had a few choice words for leaders of the Catholic church, criticizing bishops in his speech.

“Our bishops once had adoring crowds of people kissing their rings and taking in their every word, but now relegate themselves to a position of inconsequential existence. Now, when a bishop of a diocese or the bishops’ conference as a whole puts out an important document on this matter or that, nobody even takes a moment to read it, let alone follow it,” Butker said.

“No. Today, our shepherds are far more concerned with keeping the doors open to the chancery than they are with saying the difficult stuff out loud. It seems that the only time you hear from your bishops is when it’s time for the annual appeal, whereas we need our bishops to be vocal about the teachings of the Church, setting aside their own personal comfort and embracing their cross,” he said.

The Super Bowl-winning kicker has not been one to shy away from his opinion on abortion. He said in a March interview with ETWN News that unborn babies “are the greatest victims of our society.”
