Colin Kaepernick vs. Tim Tebow: A Tale of Two Christians on Their Knees

For The Washington Post, Michael Frost writes that two Christian football players’ differing displays of faith represent a divide in Christianity. Tim Tebow and Colin Kaepernick both kneel on the football field, but for different reasons, Tebow in prayer and Kaepernick in protest. Frost writes, “In many parts of the world it feels as though the church is separating into two versions, one that values personal piety, gentleness, respect for cultural mores, and an emphasis on moral issues like abortion and homosexuality, and another that values social justice, community development, racial reconciliation, and political activism.”
