Harrison Butker Upset the Anti-God Forces

When they stand before God, who will be ashamed: Butker or the anti-God bullies who attack him?

Kansas City Chief's kicker Harrison Butker gave the commencement speech at the Catholic Benedictine college
. He didn't threaten anyone, but he disagreed with the ungodly forces in our culture, so they are furiously demanding he be fired.

They claim,“His comments were sexist, homophobic, anti-trans, anti-abortion and racist. These dehumanizing remarks against LGBTQ+ individuals, attacks on abortion rights and racial discrimination perpetuate division and undermine human rights.” (source)  

What did Harrison Butker do?
In an appropriate venue, he explained his personal and religious views. Being Protestant, I don't hold some of the same Catholic views he expressed, but he has a right to express them. And I do agree with his biblical views about abortion and LGBTQ lifestyles which are the ones that made the anti-God forces so angry.
They claim that Butker insulted women. Not trueI listened to his entire speech (here), and he said culture lies about the unimportance of homemaking. And he praised his wife as a homemaker. (source)  But the anti-God forces are sexist and they think homemaking is unworthy of praise.

Nothing he said was racist, a completely false claim.*

Let’s pray for Harrison Butker and his family as they experience what Christ predicted for people who speak God's truth (John 15:18-19).

And let's ask ourselves if we're willing to take a stand for truth knowing it could cost us something (Luke 9:23; Luke 14:25-33).

Please take time to read the notes below. This event is significant and we must fully understand the implications.


The anti-God forces don't know the definition of dehumanizing.” 
It's dehumanizing to promote the killing of innocent babies. It's dehumanizing to encourage adults and children to damage their healthy bodies with surgeries and drugs in an attempt to become a gender they can never become. And it's dehumanizing to promote sexual lifestyles that send people to hell. 

The anti-God forces don't know the meaning of sexist.
Suppose some celebrity said his wife was a corporate lawyer and he was upset with those who thought women couldn't be lawyers because his wife found the greatest meaning in her life by being a lawyer. Would anyone claim he was sexist? No. But the anti-God forces want us to value women working outside the home, but we dare not value homemakers.

*The anti-God forces don't know the meaning of racism.
The only reason they might be claiming that Butker is racist is because he mentioned that the Antisemitism Awareness Act could prohibit churches from sharing the biblical account of Christ's death. 

Butker isn't alone in his concerns

Al Mohler, president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary said, evangelical Christians are among the most significant and the strongest allies of Israel and of the Jewish people.” But he is also concerned because the definition for anti-Semitism in the Antisemitism Awareness Act calls it illegal to claim the Jews killed Jesus. 
Mohler explains, “There is more to the story of the crucifixion of Jesus than the betrayal of Jesus by the Jewish people, but that is nonetheless a central part of the biblical narrative. And thus, you look at this and realize that according to this definition, the Gospel of John would be considered anti-Semitic. 

Mohler goes on to explain that instead of fighting anti-Semitism, the law very likely will be used against Christian preaching. (source)
In addition, Kansas Senator Roger Marshall also believes the Act goes too far: As a born again Christian I believe that the Holy Bible is the word of God. I think that we’re not supposed to alter the word. So I’m just guessing the House overlooked something.” He plans to offer an amendment when the Act comes before the Senate to strike that part of the definition that could make parts of Scripture illegal to share. (source)
Rep. Jerry Nadler, a New York Democrat who is Jewish, said he has spent most of his life fighting antisemitism, but urged his colleagues to oppose the bill. (source)

Butker spoke against a law that could limit Christian freedom. And this made the anti-God forces angry because their goal is to limit our freedom. They didn't like Butker sharing his religious views at a religious institution commencement, and if the Antisemitism Act passes unamended, you can be sure they will start dictating what we can preach in our churches. This is totalitarian control, plain and simple, and we must wake up!
We need to be praying, putting on the full armor, and fighting the fight of faith!

Who do you think will be ashamed when they stand before the Lord, Butker or those who are bullying him and attempting to kick him out of the NFL?

“But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken. For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.” ~ Jesus, Matthew 12:36-37

  1. Most Catholics that I know in our small city welcome LGBTQ+ into their congregations. I suspect a fair amount of those complaining are parents of the students. I didn't listen to his entire presentation, but what I heard was based on biblical beliefs and I see that as a blessing.

    1. Yes, in his speech he said the same thing you are saying - that many Catholics are not following their Catholic beliefs. He's getting criticism from many different groups.
