As football fans around the world prepare for the biggest game of the year, former NFL coach Tony Dungy is using the platform to discuss his faith and pro-life views. Ahead of the Super Bowl matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles, Dungy recently joined “The Brian Kilmeade Show” to discuss his highly decorated football career and how he never stopped speaking out about his religious beliefs.
Dungy shared an experience when he was coaching the Chiefs during the 1989-90 season and his team was encouraged not to pray on the field after the game, citing an NFL memo saying so. He believes this all changed when tragedy struck the league. During a game between the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals, Bills safety Damar Hamlin collapsed on the field and Dungy says this brought everyone together in prayer.
“We saw a young man’s life almost pass away right in front of us, and I think that changed everybody’s dynamics,” said Dungy.
Dungy’s pro-life views and recent speech at the 50th annual March for Life in Washington D.C. have sparked controversy. One far-left critic accused the NFL and NBC of “coddling [Dungy’s] right-wing extremism,” while liberal commentator Keith Olbermann called on NBC to fire Dungy from its NFL broadcasts. Dungy responded to the criticism, saying, “I understand if people [disagree] and everybody can have their opinion, but for me and my family and my house, that’s the way I see it, and I think we should be able to say that.”
Dungy is using the Super Bowl as a platform to spread a greater message. He recently discussed the importance of the “Super Bowl Breakfast,” saying that it’s a chance to “tell you what’s really important in life, share the gospel.” Dungy is an outspoken advocate for his faith and has used his platform to promote his religious beliefs for years.
The woke cult is doing everything it can to silence people that won’t go with the flow and it’s good to see Dungy pushing back.
