NFL champ skips WH visit because Obama said ‘God Bless’ Planned Parenthood

This is a man. This is a champion.

Retired Baltimore Ravens center Matt Birk, a Catholic, skipped his Championship team's visit to the Whitehouse because of President Obama's obscene blessing of Planned Parenthood.

“I have great respect for the office of the Presidency but about five or six weeks ago, our president made a comment in a speech and he said, ‘God bless Planned Parenthood,’” Birk, a former Minnesota Viking, told a local Minnesota sports blog. “I’m very confused by [Obama's] statement,” he explained. “”For God to bless a place where they’re ending 330,000 lives a year? I just chose not to attend.”

Kirk said he’s a pro-life Roman Catholic. “Planned Parenthood performs about 330,000 abortions a year,” he said. “I couldn’t endorse that in any way.”

  1. He has spoken out on this subject and about gay marriage several times from a Catholic perspective. He has stood up for his faith even though he has been attacked by the media for it. Also, what does the article mean by a pro-life Roman Catholic? Is there another kind?

  2. God bless him for standing by his faith and his beliefs. What an example to others. Politicians, take note!

  3. J.G. Holland wrote of men like Dirk in his poem God Give Us Men.

    Quite a contrast to USCCB President, Cardinal Dolan. Ain't it?

  4. Matt Birk, a hero for the unborn, the guy in the oval office, their sworn enemy!
