MLB pitching legend Curt Schilling shared, and then soon thereafter deleted, an image that appeared to support Ben Carson’s comments that he would not advocate for a Muslim to be president.
The image, which appears on Political Follies Facebook page (posted Sept. 22) highlights the atrocities perpetrated by Islamic terrorists and questions why Americans would be upset with Carson for holding the position he does. USA Today captured the image before it was deleted from Schilling’s account.

ESPN suspended Schilling as a commentator in August after he tweeted a picture comparing ISIS to Nazi Germany. He is due back on the network to cover post-season play according to USA Today.
Neither Mr. Schilling nor ESPN has acknowledged the now-deleted post, according to the Daily Caller.
As reported by Western Journalism, the media continues to try to get Ben Carson to back down from the comments he made over a week ago regarding a Muslim president. He has told numerous outlets that the only way he could support a Muslim for president is if he or she rejects Sharia Law.

“What we should be talking about is Islam, and the tenets of Islam, and where they come from. They come from Sharia,” Carson told ABC News on Sunday. “They come from the Quran. They come from the life examples of Muhammad…What I would like for somebody to show me is an approved Islamic text that opposes Sharia. If you can show me that, I will begin to alter my thinking on this.”
