Well my dear friends, you’ll find me different today. My comments to Michael Frost | May 3, 2017
“Mike Frost, obviously you did your research about the charitable giving of Kaepernick, you did nothing about the charitable giving of Teebow. This I call a lie by silence. Why did you not include that in your article. I haven’t researched to call one over the other but you certainly should have. Also you present the “taking the knee” as equal, I consider it vastly different that one did it during the playing of the national anthem; the other did it on the sideline before the game. I don’t think it was ever done during the playing of the national anthem. Two very deliberate and important omissions you have made. If they were not deliberate, you do not deserve your reputation to casually leave out such important details.”
This article compares Kaepernick’s Christianity with that of Teebow’s. The writer’s conclusion is that the two Christians are both worthy, kind, clean-cut, etc. but they are vastly different in that Kaepernick does all these great things for social justice and Teebow’s is all talk and no walk – (my words but his implication). He presents the “kneeling” as being the same. But he neglects to say that Teebow did not do it in protest to his country and he did not do it during the national anthem. He lists many things that Kaepernick does in charitable giving but says nothing about Teebow’s giving which I think is a lie by implication. I was/am upset!
TEEBOW’S CHRISTIANITY IS NOT A CHRISTIANITY WHICH IS ALL TALK AND NO WALK! AND TEEBOW IS AS MUCH A CHRISTIAN WITNESS WITH WORDS AS KAEPERNICK IS WITH TATTOOS. ACTUALLY I HAD NOT RECOGNIZED KAEPERNICK’S TATTOOS WERE ALL CHRISTIAN SYMBOLS. I WONDER IF HIS FOLLOWERS CAN READ HIS TATTOOS. I’M SKEPTICAL THAT HIS TATTOOS ARE LIKELY TO SPREAD THE GOSPEL OR FEED THE HUNGRY.
I’m slightly ticked off at a blogger who presented all the article as the last word. She also failed to research any further than her nose.
You can send me to my “private” corner if you wish. I’ll talk to the Lord about whether he would be pleased if I would get a lot of Christian symbols tattooed on my body. 😀
