Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker fires on Pride Month, Biden in graduating address

Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker expressed his strong opinions on Pride month, President Biden’s leadership during the pandemic, and his stance on abortion during a commencement address at Benedictine College last weekend.

Tom Brady, the three-time Super Bowl champion, gave a heartfelt speech on Saturday at the Catholic private liberal arts school in Atchison, Kansas. The school is located approximately 60 miles north of Kansas City.

In his address, Butker, a vocal advocate of conservative Catholic beliefs, expressed his opposition to what he referred to as “dangerous gender ideologies.” This statement seemed to allude to Pride month, which has been observed in June since the historic Stonewall riots in 1969. Additionally, he voiced his disapproval of an article published by The Associated Press that discussed a growing trend towards conservativism within certain factions of the Catholic Church.

28-year-old Butker criticized Biden’s policies, particularly his handling of the Covid pandemic, which has resulted in the deaths of almost 1.2 million individuals in the United States, as reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

According to him, although Covid may have had a significant influence on your formative years, it is not an exceptional circumstance. He suggests that the negative effects of bad policies and inadequate leadership have had an impact on various important aspects of life. These include issues such as abortion, IVF, surrogacy, euthanasia, and a growing acceptance of cultural values and media that promote degeneracy. He believes that all of these problems are interconnected and stem from the prevalence of disorder in society.

Butker later turned his attention to the women in the audience, emphasizing that their role as a homemaker is their most significant title.

“I believe that women have been subjected to the most sinister lies,” Butker expressed. “While some of you may pursue successful careers, I suspect that most of you are eagerly looking forward to marriage and the joy of raising children. Let me share that my beloved wife, Isabelle, can attest that her life truly began when she embraced her role as a wife and a mother.”

The Chiefs chose not to provide any comments regarding Butker’s commencement address.

Harrison Butker, a seventh-round pick from Georgia Tech in 2017, has emerged as one of the top kickers in the NFL. His impressive skills were showcased when he shattered the Chiefs’ franchise record with a remarkable 62-yard field goal in 2022. Not only did Butker contribute to the team’s victory in their first Super Bowl in half a century in 2020, but he also played a pivotal role in securing their second Lombardi Trophy in 2023. Additionally, his clutch field goal in the Super Bowl against San Francisco in February not only tied the game but ultimately led to their triumphant overtime win.

The Chiefs have had quite an embarrassing offseason.

In a recent development, the proposal for a downtown ballpark for the Royals and an $800 million renovation to Arrowhead Stadium, the home of the Chiefs, was firmly rejected by Jackson County, Missouri voters. The plan, presented by the Chiefs, faced severe criticism for its apparent focus on catering to VIPs and the affluent members of society.

During that same week, Rashee Rice, a wide receiver, surrendered himself to the Dallas police on various charges, including aggravated assault. This came after his involvement in a high-speed crash that resulted in injuries to four individuals. Rice has admitted to being the driver of one of the sports cars that was traveling at a speed exceeding 100 mph. Video evidence shows him leaving the scene without offering any information or checking if anyone required medical assistance.

According to The Dallas Morning News, law enforcement officials revealed last week that Rice was also believed to have assaulted someone at a downtown nightclub. However, Dallas police did not identify Rice as the suspect when providing a report to The Associated Press.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid revealed that he has already had a conversation with the receiver and emphasized that the team is allowing the legal process to unfold.
