A former US high school football coach-turned-evangelist Dave Daubenmire yesterday posted a video saying that Donald Trump’s bragging about sexually assaulting females should be of far less concern to Christians than the prospect of allowing a woman to become president.
Daubenmire, listed #607 in The Encyclopedia of American Loons, ranted:
Women and men may be equal but I think it’s pretty clear that the Bible teaches us that women should not be in authority over a man.
The founder of Pass The Salt Ministeries continued:
Here’s the point I’m making. With all that’s going on with Trump and everybody screaming and hollering about that, when is the last time your pastor stood up in the pulpit and said, ‘Hey, listen, we cannot vote for Hillary Clinton because women are not to have authority over men’?
If we want to follow the Bible, that would sure be a good place to start, wouldn’t it? Rather than worrying so much about the immorality of a sinful man, what about the biblical principle that when a woman rules over a man … it’s a sign of judgment of the Lord?
The encyclopedia points out that “coach” Daubenmire ran into some career trouble in the late 1990s for coercing his students to pray. He was sued by the American Civil Liberties Union, though his version is that:
ACLU relented and offered Coach an out of court settlement. God honored his stand and the ACLU backed off.
Pass the Salt is perhaps most famous for hosting the right wing conference “A Gathering of Eagles”, promoted as a “non-political event” designed to educate Christians about the great moral issues facing America such as The Gay Agenda, Abortion, Individual Liberty, Hate Crime Legislation, and “the religion of Secular Humanism”.
Daubenmire also runs something called “Minutemen United”, a group of people who disrupts church services to proclaim their homophobia
But Daubenmire asserts that he is:
Not homo-phobic. I’m not homo-hateful. I’m not homo-latent. I’m homo-nauseous. I really couldn’t care less where a man desires to put his appendage. But I’m sick of hearing about it. I’m sick of talking about it. I’m sick of it being force fed to me on TV.
The encyclopedia also points out:
He has repeatedly called on Obama to come clean and admit that he is gay (as well as admit that he is a socialist who is trying to destroy the economy and that he is not really a Christian; Obama is apparently also a sociopath). Then he complains that people say that he says stupid shit.
