Juxtaposing Kaepernick and Tim Teebow is a metaphor for the schism in American Christianity into two churches; one white one black; one interested in hidden sins, the other is objective sins. Both worship the martyr who dares to break the law for his faith. But the faiths, while both bowing to God, have different objectives. To me it appears that Christianity has split into a subjective and objective religion. Just as society has split into a subjective patriotism. Our Secular society has the same bifurcation that we see in religion. The American egg has two yolks. We have lost our reference to the One Egg.
It is very weird here in America where everything objectively is very ordered and peaceful. You can shop anywhere and buy the same products. Objectively you feel safe. But Subjectively, psychologically we are a raging mess. The collective American mind is bipolar, while the American physical body is very orderly and safe the American Mind is schizophrenic, divided against itself, each hearing separate voices issuing contradictory commandments.
