I caught the end of the Monday Night Football game, in which the New Orleans Saints beat the Seattle Seahawks in Seattle. As the camera panned over the players greeting and hugging each other across teams on the field immediately after the game, one big Saints player (a saint?) seemed to have stitches on his right cheekbone. Then we got another, much closer shot.
The stitches were actually an eyeblack patch applied below the eye. It was a black sticker with three thin gold crosses, the center cross elevated. Yes, in the season where the NFL has officially embraced the Marxist BLM ideology, a black player has chosen to display his Christian faith instead. The three crosses, the central cross prominent, represent Christ crucified between the two thieves.
I take that as a good sign, along with the apparent scarcity of official “Stop Hate” slogans across the back of Saints’ helmets. This was the same team, with the normal annual roster churn, that intimidated the former (white) quarterback Drew Brees and his wife into abasing themselves and their Christian faith before the alter of BLM. If more players choose to proclaim Christ over BLM, that is a good thing.Published in
