“It’s amazing to me, Jesse, that guys that are billionaires can’t do math,” Schilling explained. “Because what do you think? Let’s say there’s 10,000 trans people in [Los Angeles.] I think [that figure] is probably pushing it. “And there’s what, 1.3 billion Catholics in the world? You know, ‘Let’s not offend the offensive group, and let’s make sure that we cater to a crowd of people who literally, after tonight, will never step foot in Dodger Stadium again … and then we can offend 1.3 billion Catholics in the meantime.” And that’s really what it comes down to, isn’t it? For businessmen and entrepreneurs who have been so successful in their lives that they can afford a professional sports franchise, why can’t they figure out simple math? So you’ve jumped on the rainbow bandwagon and celebrated your tokenized perception of “pride.” Great. Now what? As Schilling alluded to, how many drag queens in the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence actually like baseball? How many of those blasphemers could tell you what an RBI is, or whether closing pitchers are overrated? How many of them could even name a current Dodger not named Clayton Kershaw? Probably not many. And while that answer is far from proven science, you don’t need to look much further than actual math to figure out how inane these “pride” celebrations are. According to a 2022 Gallup poll, 7.1 percent of American adults identified as LGBT. Conversely, a 2019 study from Ohio University found that a meager 14.1 percent of American adults picked baseball as their favorite sport. You don’t need to be a rocket surgeon to know that 14 percent of 7 percent is an infinitesimally tiny figure. Is it really worth angering swaths of Christians and Catholics (heck, even Muslims and Buddhists would probably recoil in horror at cross-dressing men giving a crucified Jesus Christ a lapdance) for a moment of “pride” that, after June 30, 2023, wouldn’t be tolerated by anyone with a modicum of sanity? If you’re the Dodgers, retail titan Target or beleaguered beer Bud Light, the answer is apparently a resounding “yes.” This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
@gehrig38 (Curt Schilling) 🔥I don’t know where the rubber is going to meet the road because it’s a true sacrifice. You look at the guys, the young men that signed the Constitution and all the things that they sacrificed, everything to come out from under a tyrannical… pic.twitter.com/qzSMqug6Zk— 🦅 Eagle Wings 🦅 (@CRRJA5) June 17, 2023
