‘Coach’ Dave Mad at Pastors

“Coach” Dave Daubenmire is really upset that a school board decided not to hire him to be their football coach because of his rather appalling history of misusing that position, but he’s even more upset at unnamed “pastors” who didn’t show up at the school board meeting to defend him.

Can you handle some Truth this morning? People gripe all of the time about the need to get God back into our schools…well…I was gonna carry Him in the front door and NOT ONE pastor showed up last night. They stayed home and “prayed”…at least they said they did. The enemies of the cross showed up and fought. The pastors stayed home. Our enemies play to win…Christians play amongst themselves. The homosexuals love their lies more than God’s people love Truth…pastors were MIA.

But wait…when he was trying to get the job he released a statement saying that he would not use his position to proselytize:

“No one understands better than me what can and cannot be done in my position as football coach at a public high school and I will not cross that line.”

But now he admits that it’s all about how he was gonna “carry Him to the front door” in order to “get God back into our schools.” Funny how the tune changed once he doesn’t get the job, proving the school board right for not buying into his lies.

    Maybe he should try toning down the crazy.

    They stayed home and “prayed”…Christians play amongst themselves.

    Finally, a committed Christian who admits that prayer is little different from playing with yourself.

    Nononononono. Don’t listen to the critics, Dave! You need to remain vocal and honest about how crazy you are. Don’t tone it down at all.

    Maybe he should have prayed harder. That’s it – apparently god didn’t want him to get the job.

    Funny how the tune changed once he doesn’t get the job, proving the school board right for not buying into his lies.

    And speaking about his lies: since he was trying to convince the school board he would not proselytize in his new function, pastors showing up in his support wouldn’t have helped him, but quite the opposite – so his complaints aren’t even making logical sense.

    I thought Christian Pastors tended to play with the genitals belonging to their parishioners’ children.

    When they reach that plateau of total self delusion the last thing they do is ‘tone it down’ because they get carried along with their own rhetoric to the point of believing everything they utter is directly from god..

    They do not even keep it consistent as witnessed here…one line before the vote…to get the job…one line after when there is no gain, and they do not even realize the problem.

    Usually they start really being inventive with stories and accusations of conspiracy against jeebus. conspiracy against truth. conspiracy against them, claims of lack of jeebus lurve’ amongst other deluded…etc etc…this muppet is well on the way.

    No better example of a self inflicted mental delusion then displayed by this idiot…it really is a terrible sickness!

    Looks like, if he’d been hired, the trouble would have started the very first day he was on the job. The school board avoided a whole mess of future trouble by saying no, even if the vote was only one away from disaster. Not just lawsuits from angry non-fundamentalist parents, but paying this guy’s future mental health costs.

  • Mr Ed

    Doublereed #1 this is toned down

    richardelguru #5 if that were true they would be much more relaxed

  • rbh3

    The vote to not hire him was 3-2, meaning that two members of the Board were willing to accept Dave’s delusions.

    doublereed: Maybe he should try toning down the crazy.

    That would seem to suggest that he is capable of rational thought and impulse control.

    I was gonna carry Him in the front door

    In the bible, Jesus was usually carried by an ass.

  • anubisprime

    Seems two members of that school board need retiring ..or firing… for flirting with extremely embarrassing litigious decisions based on their own naive and dumb stupidity.

    The would have cost the school thousands in the inevitable court case because dumbfuck was caught proselytizing on school time.

    He’s been cast in Ocean’s Fourteen. His character tells the others that he’s a team player, but really he helps them and sabotages them by trying to sneak Jesus in to Vegas’ vaults.

     

    My review: “It’s like the Ocean’s film before it, but not as good.”

    Please do not equate honest masturbation with the things that Christians do “amongst themselves”.

    Masturbation can be rewarding and healthy.

    @ Philip

    … so his complaints aren’t even making logical sense.

    Logic and Dave Daubenmire have never been in the same room at the same time. Like many of his ilk, “Coach” Dave has substituted faith for anything resembling intelligence. I’m sure that he believed that his ruse (“oh, I’m not going to proselytize”) would work, and that the pastors being present would boost his cause, not hurt it. Self-doubt is an undesirable trait in a fundie, because it leads to atheism. I doubt that he ever asked himself “is this really going to work?”

    “No one understands better than me what can and cannot be done in my position as football coach at a public high school and I will not cross that line.”

    Well, he knows that as long as he doesn’t knowingly violate a “well established” rule against a particular unconstitutional practice, he can’t be sued personally, only the school board can be. That was the line he wasn’t going to cross … he’d find some “new” way to use his position to proselytize and the school board be damned!

    Dr. Dunning, Dr. Kruger! Dr. Dunning, Dr. Kruger to the white telephone, please!

    Substitute “less” for “better” and he would be speaking the truth.

    Another example of the power of prayer.

    Today yet another article about the Daubenmire Debacle in the Newark Advocate newspaper. Daubenmire melodramtically claims that two members of the board (the ones who didn’t vote for him natch) ” are complicit in the execution of our family name” . Daubenmire himself, with the help of his registered sexual offender son, ruined the family name years ago.

    “http://www.newarkadvocate.com/article/20140218/NEWS01/302180036/Local-minister-speaks-out-after-being-rejected-Lakewood-coaching-job

    In a press release to a Christian wire service, Daubenmire claimed that ” the board’s actions were both immoral and illegal. ” It’s possible that he may sue for discrimination. It’s very likely he has talked to his lawyer about it. especially since his lawyer was at the school board meeting as a character witness.

    Christians play among themselves

    Sounds like a ‘circle-jerk’ to me.
