Why Did This Super Bowl Star Refuse To Meet With President Obama?

If you were invited to the White House to be honored by President Obama, would you go? Even if you don't agree with his politics, you may choose to go just because of the unique opportunity. But 15-year NFL veteran Matt Birk said that his convictions won out over the wow-factor of the invitation.

Matt Birk and his wife Adriana have 7 kids and are still open to more. As strong Catholics, they firmly believe in protecting biblical marriage and the life of the unborn. After winning the 2013 Super Bowl with the Baltimore Ravens, Birk was asked, along with his team, to be honored by the President at the White House. This came just days after Obama's strong endorsement of Planned Parenthood.

Birk said what really got him was Obama asking God to "bless Planned Parenthood." He said, with over 300,000 deaths, there's just no way God could do that. Beyond his incitement with Obama's comment, Birk said he had to take a stand for his children watching him. 

“It was because of my faith and my pro-life conviction, but ultimately, it was because of my kids,” Birk shared. “I want to not just talk about my faith, but I want to live it out too. And a few years ago, some of the older ones [were] aware of Planned Parenthood and what occurs there, and so, I wanted to set the example for them and be a dad that they could be proud of."

Birk's wife, Adrianna, shared while smiling, “We love all of our kids. They all have different positive qualities. People will say, ‘Oh, are you done?’ And, honestly, whenever God tells us we are done, we are going to be done. As of now, there is definitely probably another Birk coming. We are always welcoming for another one."

We love seeing celebrity couples like Matt and Adrianna take a strong stand for God and His Word! We pray God continues to bless the Birk family greatly. Do you agree?
