The Facebook Post that has ESPN’s Curt Schilling Under Fire Again

curtschilling2

In August, baseball pitching legend Curt Schilling was suspended from his job as an analyst at ESPN because the Disney-owned sports network took issue with Shilling tweeting a meme that compared Muslims to Nazis.

At the time, Schilling was one of the analysts and announcers for the Little League World Series. When Shilling defended himself and his comments following his suspension, ESPN decided to teach him a lesson and suspended him for the rest of the year.

Now Schilling is under attack once again for sharing a meme in defense of Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson who is experiencing attacks by leftists in the media and outside of it for comments he made about the possibility of a Muslim President of the United States.

As Dr. Carson has surged in polls following his debate performances, he has increasingly become the target of the Democrat Media Complex. During an interview last week on NBC’s Meet the Press, host Chuck Todd asked Carson if he believed a Muslim could be president. This line of questioning came conveniently after Donald Trump, another GOP presidential candidate, was excoriated by the press for not defending Obama when a questioner at a town hall said that Obama is a Muslim.

Schilling quickly took the post down, but not before it was screen captured by USA Today.

The left did not like Carson’s answer and has been on a crusade ever since to tear down anyone who believes there is a conflict between Shariah law and the Constitution.

“Should a president’s faith matter? Should your faith matter to voters?” Chuck Todd asked Dr. Carson.

“Well, I guess it would matter what that faith is,” Carson answered. “If it’s inconsistent with the values and principles of America, then of course it should matter. But if it fits within the realm of America and consistent with the Constitution, no problem,” he explained.

“So, do you believe that Islam is consistent with the Constitution?” Todd asked in a follow-up question.

“No, I do not. I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation. I absolutely do not agree with that,” Carson boldly answered.

And that leads us to the current controversy regarding Curt Schilling.

Although leftists have no problem attacking Christians and Christianity, they handle Islam and Muslims differently. They, of course, follow the lead of Barack Obama in refusing to acknowledge that radical Islamic terrorism is real.

Rather than admit the rise of terrorism in the world at the hands of Muslims, and in an obvious insult to those who died in this country on September 11, 2001, at the Fort Hood shooting, the Boston Marathon and in Benghazi, and other acts of terrorism, they instead shift the focus to anyone who will call out radical Islamic terrorism making Christianity a constant point of attack.

That’s not only shameful, it’s dangerous.

Schilling was reportedly scheduled to return to his role as an baseball analyst at ESPN in the post season and for the World Series. There has been no report on whether his latest social media post will led ESPN to change their minds.
