Hamlin, who was not playing in the game, sat next to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, presumably being honored for suffering from cardiac arrest during a game earlier this season.
He wore a letterman’s jacket which read: “Without the end or beginning there is no day and there is no night,” and on the back depicted a very vulgar form of Christ on the cross, captioned by the word “eternal.”
Peterson initially called out Hamlin on Instagram.
“You should be thanking God son!” he wrote. “This is Blasphemy!! We all fall short but cmon man! I find this disrespectful!!”
After the initial post, Peterson reportedly followed up with Hamlin, confronting him about the disrespectful depiction of Christ but ultimately apologizing for passing judgment.
“So I spoke with [Damar], and we were able to discuss our thoughts as men,” Peterson wrote. “I want to be clear, I’m the last person to judge anyone, and that was never my intention.”
Nonetheless, Peterson mentioned that he still finds the jacket “disrespectful,” noting that “everyone makes mistakes and falls short at times.”
Hamlin, despite wearing a questionable jacket to the game, did speak about his faith in the aftermath of his on-field collapse, noting that he was grateful for “God’s guidance.”
The Hamlin story has made headlines despite several other players actually playing in the game being genuine Christians.
Notably, Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker–who made the game-winning kick–is an outspoken Catholic, who wears a scapular while playing.
Of course, by the standards of Biden regime, Butker–a traditionalist Catholic–is a suspected domestic terrorist.
“I felt like I wasn’t able to embrace it until I saw it completely exposed in the light. I knew that I had discovered authentic Catholicism,” Butker said in a 2022 interview, wherein he described his discovery of the faith.
“And I found that at the Traditional Latin Mass, in the traditional sacraments, and I think a lot of young people have found that as well.”
