In a time when anyone in the public eye gets canceled for the slightest incident that might “offend” Leftists, two-time Superbowl champ Harrison Butker is not afraid to share his faith, even when it goes against the abortion cult.
Superbowl LVII winners Kansas City Chiefs visited the White House on Monday to be honored and Butker made a silent pro-life stance.
The team’s kicker was wearing a tie that said “Vulnerari Praesidio” in cursive writing covering the tie. The tie was designed by Live Action, a pro-life organization, with the Latin term that translates to “Protect the most vulnerable,” according to The Daily Signal reporting.
“I want to give the most vulnerable, the unborn, a voice at a place where every effort has been made to allow and normalize the tragic termination of their lives,” Butker said in a statement to the news organization.
“As a father who has experienced three miscarriages, my wife and I understand the hardships that come with losing a child. Every life is precious and should be valued whether outside or inside the womb.”
It’s refreshing to see an NFL star and young man of only 27 years old stand up for unborn babies.
Butker is a devout Catholic but unlike our president, he believes that all life is sacred from the moment of conception until natural death.
“President Biden is a professing Catholic who, as the most powerful man in the world, is responsible for leading the most pro-abortion administration in our history that has overseen a horrific death toll of 2,548 children every day lost to abortion,” Live Action founder and president Lila Rose added in a statement to The Daily Signal.
In an interview last February, Butker discussed his Catholic faith with EWTN News In Depth’s Colm Flynn.
“I’m not just making kicks so that I can make money and I can puff myself up as this great person that people want to be like one day,” he told Flynn.
“I’m making kicks because God wants me to have a platform, at least for right now, to share this message of faith, of growing in virtue, of growing closer to the sacraments and of being a saint.”
Last year, when the pro-life ballot measure known as the Value Them Both Amendment was on the ballot, Butker endorsed the measure in an ad produced by Catholic Vote, a very risky move in the current political climate.
“This amendment will let Kansans decide what we do on abortion,” Butker said in the ad. “Not judges and not D.C. politicians.”
“Without this amendment, even barbaric late-term abortions will be allowed,” he continued. “Join the team, and vote yes!”
The Georgia Tech University alumnus spoke at this year’s commencement and offered another somewhat contentious piece of advice.
“I can offer one controversial antidote that I believe will have a lasting impact for generations to come: get married and start a family,” the 27-year-old told the graduates.
He said about his professional accomplishments, “None of these accomplishments mean anything compared to the happiness I have found in my marriage and in starting a family.”
Butker is the guy you want your children to view as a role model. He and others like him will help turn this country around.
