Super Bowl-winning kicker Harrison Butker delivered a powerful commencement address at Benedictine College on Saturday, urging male graduates to embrace their masculinity and criticizing Catholic leaders who support abortion and other liberal policies.

The Kansas City Chiefs player told the conservative Catholic college’s class of 2024 they had missed out on opportunities due to the “COVID fiasco” and blamed “bad policies and poor leadership” for negatively impacting major life issues.

Butker called out President Joe Biden for publicly proclaiming his Catholic faith while supporting abortion. “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,” Butker said.


He also appeared to criticize Dr. Anthony Fauci and people pushing radical, leftist gender ideology while identifying publicly as Catholic. Butker criticized bishops who shut down churches during the pandemic saying they were “motivated by fear.”

The kicker encouraged female graduates to embrace marriage and motherhood rather than being career-focused. He told male students to “be unapologetic in your masculinity, fighting against the cultural emasculation of men. Do hard things. Never settle for what is easy.”

Butker said, “As men, we set the tone of the culture and when that is absent, disorder dysfunction and chaos set in.” He argued the absence of men in the home plays a large role in the violence seen around the nation.


Naturally, leftists who see healthy societies and the pursuit of greatness as inherently bad have begun to attack Butker for his unapologetic stance against a society in decline.
