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.

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.
