Once again, I present Curt Schilling

Sunday Night Baseball - January 17, 2014Sadly, but certainly no surprise, given his past history of unenlightened comment, Schilling has now doubled down on transgender phobia and bigotry.

The New York Daily News has the details of what he posted on his Facebook page. As with his various comments on evolution, it also shows a scientific ignorance that must be considered willful.

Next question is: What, if anything, will ESPN do? Slap on the wrist? Half-slap on the wrist? Three-day timeout?

Isn’t it about time that Red Satan cut its ties with him once and for all?

And, per a new piece here, it HAS. Which, in turn, has caused this Facebook flame from his wife.

  1. Guys like this are generally the biggest sexual deviants around. Just sayin’…someone may want to look in his browser’s search history.

    Here is Curt’s blog post on the subject:

    You frauds out there ranting and screaming about my ‘opinions’ (even if it isn’t) and comments are screaming for “tolerance” and “acceptance” while you refuse to do and be either.

    YOU’RE the ones making it the issue. I don’t care, if you ask me about any of the topics it’s likely (much to the chagrin of many) I’ll answer with my opinion.

    There are things I have deeply held beliefs in, things I have that are core to who I am, things I am passionate about. If you ask me about them it’s likely I’ll give you a passionate answer, whether you like that answer or not is completely up to you. I am not going to give you answers to make sure you like what I say, let the rest of the insecure world do that.

        The use of reason may be underrated, but what drives us? I’ll go with the master.

      • The minute I read ” deeply held beliefs” I fucking scream inside my head! What if I have deeply held beliefs as a Pastafarian that I should be allowed to spray paint ” the flying spaghetti monster says that you should never be allowed to access the internet again? It’s her will that I cut your wires so as to save the world from your idiocy?” All over your Fucking gated community?

        I’m sick of Christianity! You’re infringing on my right to be agnostic, I haven’t infringed on your right to believe what you want. You don’t like contraception or abortion? Don’t fucking use them or get them! You don’t like gays getting married? Don’t go to the fucking wedding, they won’t miss you talking shit!

        You don’t like school shootings? Stop saying that we need more guns because the government is going to take them away! You think that Jesus rode a dinosaur? Well…..you’re not someone I want making decisions on my behalf! If you actually want people to take away anything about your opinions to heart….leave religious beliefs OUT of my government!

        This was by no means an admonishment to either yahmule or Socratic gadfly or anyone else who may post, I am just sick of hearing ” deeply held beliefs” as a reason for ignorance. If we got anything about this election cycle, it’s at least apparent that the stupid people are now out in the open. Now I can identify and dismiss their own words and actions!

        We have been getting more commenters lately…..do we have a Trump supporter yet? Its biceps right? Haha

  3. I don’t see anything to do at this point but ignore him and his rants. He isn’t going to change and he is perfectly within his rights to be a bigoted a###ole.

    It’s not like he’s the Lone Ranger these days. I don’t even know where to start with idiots saying stupid things in the media these days.

    • He must be kind of frustrated that FOX hasn’t offered him a talk show yet. Too ugly for TV. If he could spout ugly shit while being as pretty as Hannity, he would have a corner office there and a staff to scream at already.

    • You start by ridiculing him mercilessly on every forum that you can and then point out why he’s wrong. He’s still a fucking hero in Boston and Phoenix and can still get his followers to vote against their own interests!

      Remind everyone how much he fucked Rhode island and all the game developers who still haven’t got paid for a year worth of work! Typical conservative….take public cash while voting against public cash from the people who really need it, then default on the loans, stay in your mansion while the taxpayers foot the bill!
