Amid college graduation season, campuses often known for their strong leftist ideologies have welcomed progressive speakers to deliver commencement addresses, reinforcing the indoctrination students have undergone during their time at these institutions.

However, Benedictine College, a private Catholic school in Kansas, diverged from this trend by inviting Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker to speak.

In his speech, Butker reflected on the role of faith in his life and took some swipes at the current resident of the White House. Despite the NFL’s past support for various socio-political causes, it drew a line at his defense of traditional American values.

The NFL has officially distanced itself from Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker, following his commencement speech at a private college in Kansas. During his address, Butker encouraged female graduates to embrace the role of “homemaker” and made pointed criticisms of the LGBTQ community, as well as Joe Biden’s abortion and lockdown policies.

Jonathan Beane, the NFL’s Senior Vice President and Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer, told People magazine, “Harrison Butker spoke in his personal capacity. His views do not reflect those of the NFL. We remain committed to promoting an inclusive environment, which strengthens our league.”

Butker, a three-time Super Bowl Champion, delivered his speech at Benedictine College on Saturday, highlighting what he perceived as a decline in moral values under the Biden regime.

He accused Joe Biden of hypocrisy, highlighting the inconsistency between Biden’s public Catholic faith and his pro-abortion stance, describing it as a “delusional” act that misleads regarding the possibility of being both Catholic and being pro-abortion.

“Our own is led by a man who publicly and proudly proclaims his Catholic faith but, at the same time, is delusional enough to make the sign of the cross during a pro-abortion rally. 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. He is not alone.”

Butker didn’t limit his criticism to Biden; he broadened his condemnation to include other Catholics who endorse policies conflicting with traditional church teachings, especially concerning gender identity.

“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. These are the things we are told in polite society not to bring up, the difficult and unpleasant things.”

Butker condemned what he referred to as the “the gay agenda” and criticized the media’s portrayal of traditional values.

“Bad policies and poor leadership have negatively impacted major life issues. Things like abortion, IVF, surrogacy, euthanasia — as well as a growing support for degenerate cultural values in media — all stem from the pervasiveness of disorder.”

Directly addressing women, Butker emphasized the importance of motherhood and homemaking, lauding his wife, Isabelle, as an exemplary embodiment of fulfilling her role as a wife and mother. He credited much of his personal and professional achievements to her commitment to their family.

Additionally, Butker spoke to the men in the audience, emphasizing the pivotal role of men as leaders and providers within both the household and the broader community. He linked the absence of strong male figures in the home to societal disorder and increased violence, citing a situation he claimed to be less prevalent in countries with lower rates of absent fathers.


Of course, his speech sparked outrage among the far left.

A petition on, which has amassed over 30,000 signatures, demands that the Chiefs dismiss Harrison Butker for his based, common sense, non-woke commencement speech.

The official Kansas City account doxxed Butker, but then deleted the post. Nevertheless, screenshots of the post had already been taken.

In response, Kansas City issued an apology, claiming that it was posted “in error”: “We apologize for our previous tweet. It was shared in error.”
