NFL Commissioner Addresses Butker’s Support for Christian Values in Speech

0:00

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has finally made a statement more than a week after Kansas City Chiefs player Harrison Butker delivered a commencement address voicing his support for traditional Christian values.

The NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported that Goodell spoke to Butker’s comments but steered clear of condemning the player for his opinions.

Goodell has made a practice of refusing to condemn players or staffers for their public comments. For instance, he never directly condemned outspoken, anti-American quarterback Colin Kaepernick through his years of attacks on America, our troops, cops, the flag, and history — and in 2020, he even lamented that the NFL hadn’t “listened earlier” to Kaepernick.

The NFL boss has also urged players to speak out when they have a mind to and condoned “peaceful protests” to support their ideals.

The left has been on a tear to destroy the Super Bowl winner since he stood up for Christian values during his May 11 commencement speech delivered to the Benedictine graduates.

During his speech, Butker urged the graduates to maintain their devotion to Christian values as they left college and spoke of faith, family, femininity, and masculinity as his themes.

His comments even elicited the condemnation of the NFL’s Inclusion Officer Jonathan Beane, who tried to distance the NFL from Christian values by saying that Butker’s views “are not those of the NFL as an organization.”
