Curt Schilling: This Is a Challenging Time to Be a Christian

Curt Schilling, former ESPN analyst and World Series MVP pitcher, has been hammered for exercising his First Amendment rights and speaking out about political correctness. He joined The Glenn Beck Program on Wednesday to talk guns in the wake of the Orlando terrorist attack, why it's a challenging time to be Christian and why he's on board the Trump train.

"You've been getting a beating for quite some time. And you just won't sit down," Glenn said.

Schilling agreed.

"Isn't that what we're supposed to be doing as Christians, anyway, taking a beating?" Schilling asked. "I say that halfheartedly, but this is, I think, for me -- I don't know about you -- this is a very challenging time for me as a Christian because a lot of the things I'm feeling about people aren't Christian."

All humor aside, Glenn had serious issues to discuss with the former baseball star.

"I want to talk about several things. I want to talk about Donald Trump. I want to talk about the media. And I want to talk about gun control because you've been on a Twitter tirade here about gun control," Glenn said.

"Listen, I'm not a gun nut. I never have been. I was born in Alaska. So I learned how to shoot a gun before I wore a diaper. Because getting killed by a bear on the way to school was actually a possibility in Alaska," Schilling said.

While not a huge gun enthusiast, Schilling does target shoot and fervently defend the Second Amendment.

"My issue and my tirade on the Second Amendment is more, for me, a tirade on the Constitution than it is on the Second Amendment," Schilling said. "Listen, I want my federal government to protect my country, protect my family and take care of the people that can't take care of themselves. Other than that, get out of the way. Let the people take care of . . . we can take care of ourselves. I don't want more federal. I especially don't want more of an administration that is lying and deceitful and phony and fraudulent in my day-to-day life anymore. Get out. Let us do what we can do because we can take care of ourselves."

Changing course, Glenn asked about Schilling's support of Donald Trump.

"Now, let me go here because I don't understand this. You're a Donald Trump supporter," Glenn said.

"If I could pick another candidate, a perfect candidate, yeah, I would pick somebody different. I would pick Mr. Carson. I would give Mr. Carson an authoritative, booming presence that I think he lacked and I would vote for him all day," Schilling said.

However, once Carson left the race, Schilling decided to support Trump. While he doesn't agree with everything Trump has said or done, the real estate mogul has certain attributes that appeal to a shoot-from-hip, say-it-like-it-is maverick like Schilling.

"I'm not making excuses for him, but I want someone with passion. I want someone with conviction, someone that's going to speak from the heart and have a heart for this country," Schilling said.

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.
