Earlier today I noted the recent, bigoted comments by World Golf Hall of Famer Carol Mann on a public Facebook page.
Of Muslims, Mann recently wrote on her public Facebook page: “The United States is a Christian country, founded on Christian principles and with an expectation of Christian behavior. Let the Muslims erect their worship centers in other countries that are not Christian. Go away – soon!”
Ironic that Mann would advance that agenda considering that her current Wikipedia page, along with a Facebook bio page, notes that, “she was a close friend of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.” (Above is a snapshot of Mann’s Wikipedia page taken by Google on August 18.)
Actually, since the friendship is listed in the past tense and Abdul-Jabbar is among the living, I guess it’s not ironic at all.
Personally, I’d be more interested to know what Kareem Abdul-Jabbar thinks. According to Wikipedia, Mann counts the Muslim hoops icon among her closest friends.
Mann’s religious intolerance in her Facebook entry didn’t not extend to overt racism. No, she’d already crossed that bridge with comments to Fox Sports last year.
