Kansas City Chiefs Coach Andy Reid Defends Harrison Butker

During an interview today, Kansas City Chiefs Coach Andy Reid defended pro-life and pro-family comments made by kicker Harrison Butker.

Reid said he had no reason to have a special talk with Butker about the remarks.

Listen, I talk to Harrison all the time … I didn’t talk to him about this. I didn’t think we needed to. We’re a microcosm of life here. Everybody’s from different areas, different religions, different races and so we all get along. We all respect each other’s opinions and not necessarily do we go by those but we respect everybody to have a voice. That’s the good thing about America and, like I said, we’re a microcosm of that. My wish is that everybody could follow that.

Reid also said no female email employees of the Chiefs have come to him with concerns about Butker.

That hasn’t happened. I don’t think he’s speaking ill to women, but he has his opinions and we all respect that. I let you guys in this room and you have a lot of opinions that I don’t like, so…

Reid also confirmed that Butker’s remarks are not a distraction.

The guys are good with that. They understand. They understand how things work and everybody’s got their own opinion. That’s what’s so great about this country. You can share those things and you work through it. That’s what guys do.

After coming under fire from football fans from across the country, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell today walked back the league’s criticism of pro-life football player Harrison Butker.

As LifeNews previously reported, the NFL condemned the commencement speech Butker gave in which he called out Joe Biden for supporting the “murder” of unborn babies in abortions and defended motherhood.

“Listen, we have over 3,000 players,” Goodell said today. “They have diversity of opinions and thoughts just like America does.”

“I think that’s something we treasure. That’s part of what ultimately makes us as a society better. We’re not going to go much beyond the statement we made last week,” he added.

Previously, NFL senior vice president Jonathan Beane addressed the commencement speech by Kansas City Chiefs’ player Harrison Butker as follows: “Harrison Butker gave a speech in his personal capacity. His views are not those of the NFL as an organization. The NFL is steadfast in our commitment to inclusion, which only makes our league stronger.”

Butker, a three-time Super Bowl-winning kicker for the Kansas City Chiefs, slammed Joe Biden during a commencement speech at Benedictine College recently that has gone viral on social media.

Butker and the college are both Catholic and the NFL player ripped Biden for being a hypocrite – claiming to be Catholic while ignoring the pro-life teachings of the Catholic Church.

The Chiefs player said, “Our own nation is led by a man who 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 you can be both Catholic and pro-choice,” Butker added.

In his remarks, Butker also urged the Christian church to stand up stronger for Christian values.

“We need to stop pretending that the church of nice is a winning proposition,” Butker said. “…We must always speak and act in charity. But never mistake charity for cowardice.”

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