USA Today totally respects and acknowledges your right to freedom of religion. Until it doesn’t. At least that seems to be what they’re getting at in an article titled, “When Religion and the LGBT Collegiate Athlete Collide.”
Confess! Confess! Curt Schilling, the Boston Red Sox pitching ace turned sports media personality, was canned by ESPN after sharing a post on his Facebook account against allowing transgenders to choose which bathroom they use. New York Times reporter Richard Sandomir wrote up “ESPN Fires Schilling Over an Offensive Post” for Thursday’s sports page, then put on his moralistic liberal columnist cap for Friday’s follow-up: “Contrition Continues to Elude Schilling.” The libertine liberals at the New York Times became positively moralistic in its own Facebook blurb promoting Sandomir’s column: “Curt Schilling’s response suggests he may not comprehend the ramifications of what he did.”
The sports media continued their postgame celebrations on Thursday, after ESPN’s firing of Curt Schilling. A firing that so many members of the liberal sports media openly, and privately, rooted for.
Curt Schilling was fired by ESPN on Wednesday, for expressing an opinion online earlier in the week which just happens to be the view held by the vast majority of the American people. Earlier this week, Schilling posted a picture of a transgender person, and made a comment regarding the effort to let transgender men use women’s restrooms.
USA Today Sports wants you to know that they believe it’s very important that everyone has a right to say whatever it is they believe. Right before they accuse you of causing transgender people to commit suicide because of your beliefs.
ESPN’s Bomani Jones really wants you to know that his T-shirt is clean, and powerful. Bomani Jones wore a ‘Caucasians’ t-shirt after his appearance on Mike & Mike last week. A shirt basically identical to a Cleveland Indians shirt, complete with Chief Wahoo, except it says, ‘Caucasians’ and has a dollar sign in place of a feather.
Because this is the job of a sports reporter, Brian Alee-Walsh, who covers the New Orleans Saints for the Sun Herald, reacted to the death of former New Orleans Saints defensive lineman Will Smith by…wait for it…calling for gun control.
In the wake of the murder of his former player, defensive end Will Smith, this weekend, New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton issued a challenge to Black Lives Matter, to stand-up and protest black-on-black violence, the same way they protest white-on-black violence.
Actually, he’s not. That would be helpful. Instead, he’s calling for a gun ban.
Because someone using the 1st Amendment to pay tribute to God and the U.S. military, while openly advocating for a true Christian to ascend to the White House, is apparently terrifying, Deadspin lost their collective excrement mind and launched into what amounts to a hissy fit in response to Phil Robertson giving the invocation at a NASCAR race in Texas.
Grant Brisbee at SB Nation is having fun with the notion that “Bill Maher, comedian and talk show host who has built a successful, lucrative career based on a smug, arrogant brand of comedy, apparently thinks that Bryce Harper is too arrogant.”
“There are villains, and there are villains,” Maher said on WOR radio in New York. “Just something about him that is very arrogant, and of course that’s important when you’re facing a 100-mph fastball, you have to have that. But some guys, the confidence, which is the element we’re seeking, tips over into a kind of unattractive quality.”
Liberal columnist and lifelong Red Sox fan Mike Barnicle got busted by his colleague Joe Scarborough Tuesday afternoon for watching the Red Sox home opener. via his smartphone while on set. Barnicle apparently struggled to turn off the volume.
Just weeks after MLB openly begged for a gay baseball player to reveal himself, to not be the only major American sports league without an openly gay player, it seems they will now try to one-up the NFL and NBA by playing host to the first female player in major American sports history.
