Coach Dave Daubenmire, self proclaimed Christian and regular contributor to News With Views, had a few interesting things to recently.
Daubenmire: Not Allowing Christians To Bully Gays Is A Form Of Bullying Against Christians
“Coach” Dave Daubenmire is back with another rant, this time against bullying; not against the act of bullying, mind you, which he says is just a fact a life and actually serves the purpose of making its victims tougher.
No, what Daubenmire is upset about it efforts to prevent bullying from taking place is rooted in efforts “to get people not to criticize or make fun of or poke fun at homosexuals.” And when Christians can no longer say “something that their conscience tells them to say,” Daubenmire fumes, “then we see that majority begin to bully the minority” so now “we’re beginning to see Christians, and Christian idea, and Christian values become the most bullied things in all of this nation.” (with video)
The next one is a two-for-oner,
Daubenmire Defends Westboro Baptist Church Because ‘What If God Really Told Fred Phelps To Do That?
Even the most militant anti-gay activists tend to distance themselves from the Phelps cult and decry their protests as vile and unchristian … but not “Coach” Dave Daubenmire who today defended Westboro on the grounds that Christians have no right to judge the way in which this church carries out its mission.
Defending both Koran-burner Terry Jones and Phelps’ Westboro Baptist Church, Daubenmire said that while he personally might not do things the same way, he is in no position to criticize them because “what if God really told Fred Phelps to do that?” (with video)
Daubenmire: Fred Phelps Is Part Of The Body Of Christ
For the second time, “Coach” Dave Daubenmire has posted a commentary in which he defends Fred Phelps and his infamous “God Hates Fags” Westboro Baptist Church, saying they too are part of the body of Christ.
Working off a passage in 1 Corinthians 12 (which he wrongly attributes to Jesus but was actually written by Paul) that says “just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ,” Daubenmire wonders why Christians are so quick to judge people like Phelps or Quran-burner Terry Jones.
Don’t know if I ever mentioned this before, but a few years back I actually wrote Dave Daubenmire concerning one of his columns at News With Views. So much time has passed that it’s impossible now to actually recall what the subject of his column was about, but I can recall it painted an ugly “picture” of biblical Christianity. I do know that in expressing my concern, in the short note I sent him, I referred to him as a brother in Christ and reminded him that not all who read his columns are Christians, asking, if he took that into consideration when writing that particular column. His responding email was one of the nastiest, mean-spirited letters I’ve ever received…one in which he bluntly told me I was “un-American”, not a true “Patriot”, and was a wolf posing in sheeps clothing. Needless to say, I didn’t respond back. But this guy is “one weird dude” folks.
Anyway, thought someone else might find his latest rantings interesting, mainly because Daubenmire’s views are read by thousands of people through his columns AND because his views are held by many other self-proclaiming Christians in this “Christian” Nation. He is only one of many who are members of what has become known as the Christian Patriot Movement, or as I call it, The Distorted Church.
