An offended columnist at The Kansas City Star hammered Butker, saying the kicker insisted on “belittling the human value of others.” But the kicker spoke of the importance of speaking and acting “in charity,” and the columnist admitted that when he has discussed these matters with Butker in the past, “he’s been remarkably respectful when I’ve expressed a contrasting view.”

That sounds like someone who isn’t a hater, but who has deeply grounded views and who believes — for good reason — that if he doesn’t speak the truth, few others in his position will.

The verdict regarding Butker’s address should be — good from 55 yards.
