‘Gay-KK’ Claims Another Victim: Christian Coach Dave Daubenmire Voted Down for Ohio Football Coaching Job after Being Targeted by Homosexuals

NOT HIRED. TOO CHRISTIAN: Coach Dave Daubenmire with his trademark Christian cap that he wears as a no-nonsense, politically incorrect, Christian pro-family advocate. Despite his stellar coaching record of turning around failing high school football programs, Coach Dave was voted down 3-2 for head football coach at Lakewood [Ohio] High School–after pro-LGBT activists (e.g., “Change.org” and People for the American Way’s “Right-Wing Watch”) targeted the Lakewood, Ohio School Board with a pressure campaign.

“In America, only Christians can be discriminated against. Homosexual teachers and coaches would be welcomed with open arms.”–Coach Dave Daubenmire

Folks, the bad guys in the Culture War just won another one yesterday, and a very good guy, Coach Dave Daubenmire, lost–after getting cyber-smeared by a hateful social media campaign by the “Gay-KK” (or “Gay-stapo,” or “Gay Thought Police,” or “Homo-fascists,” or whatever you call today’s uber-intolerant, anti-Christian homosexual militants who target dissenters for retribution and recognize NO legitimate opposition to homosexualism).

Last night, the Lakewood, Ohio School Board voted 3-2 against hiring Coach Dave–despite the recommendation of Daubenmire by Lakewood Superintendent Jay Gault [mailto:jgault@laca.org; 740-928-4552; ext. 2]. Coach Dave is a bold, outspoken, politically incorrect Christian–pro-life, pro-real-marriage, anti-pornography. But he is also an accomplished coach with a an outstanding record for turning around failing high school football programs:

He coached at Heath High from 1982 to 1988 before taking over at London [(Ohio) High School], where he coached for the next 11 seasons, guiding that team to the playoffs five times between 1992 and 1999. Most recently, he started the football program at Fairfield Christian Academy in Lancaster in 2008, going 23-8 with two playoff appearances in his final three seasons.

Daubenmire also was recommended for hire by the Lakewood superintendent, but no matter, because he was branded “anti-gay,” “hateful” and “homophobic” by LGBT militants who spread lies and half-truths about him using a high-tech online lobbying website (Change.org) that targeted the School Board.

Of course, guess who will suffer most from this Politically Correct vote:  a bunch of teenage boys who now have been denied an outstanding Coach and motivator–but more importantly, a great Christian role model.

We will have much more on this story, but the bottom line is that the pro-homosexual Left–which has gotten very good at getting Bible-believing Christians fired or punished [see my WND Whistleblower piece]–is saying that you cannot be a role model for youth if you are publicly “anti-gay.” Our society is now completely upside-down: a college football star (Michael Sam) is treated like a hero for going public with his homosexuality (i.e., his besetting sin)–while a God-fearing, Christian family man (Dave Daubenmire) is denied a coaching job at his alma mater–a job  for which he is superbly qualified–merely because he holds views on sexual morality that are despised by the LGBT Lobby. More coming…  — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH

Here is Coach Dave’s Christian Newswire Release on his non-hiring:

Homosexual Lobby Bullies Ohio School Board Into Not Hiring Christian Coach

Contact: Coach Dave Daubemire, 740-507-3211ptsalt@gmail.com

HEBRON, Ohio, Feb. 13, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ — Last night Lakewood Ohio Local School Board rejected the recommendation of the Lakewood High School administration and selection committee to hire outspoken Christian Coach Dave Daubenmire.  Outside organizations such as Change.org and Equality Ohio used lies, intimidation and threats to bully the school board into rejecting the administration’s recommendations.

Daubenmire, 61, an alumnus of Lakewood High and a highly successful veteran coach was rejected by a vote of 3-2 because his outspoken views regarding homosexuality were not acceptable to intolerant homosexual activists who demand strict adherence to their political agenda.

After four interviews and recommendations of Daubenmire by two committees, the board rejected Daubenmire because he was a “poor role model” for young people because of his vocal opposition to homosexual marriage.

Candidate For Lakewood HS Football Coach Denied Job

Daubenmire responded following the meeting:

“It is painfully obvious that the anti-Christian lobby demand not just acceptance but obedience to their far left dogma and will smear anyone who speaks up for Christian values. The message that the Lakewood Board of Education sent last night is that anyone with deeply held Biblical beliefs is not welcome in our public schools.  The board’s actions were both immoral and illegal.  My family has resided in this community for over 50 years. The rejection by this school board is a slap in the face not only to Christians everywhere, but to our family in particular. In America, only Christians can be discriminated against.  Homosexual teachers and coaches would be welcomed with open arms.”

Excerpts from the Columbus Dispatch story on the non-hiring of Coach Dave:

Lakewood school board won’t hire Daubenmire as football coach

HEBRON, Ohio — It appears that the two great passions of Dave Daubenmire’s life — coaching and preaching — are incompatible, at least to three of the five board members of Lakewood Local Schools.

The board voted 3-2 tonight to reject Superintendent Jay Gault’s recommendation to hire the controversial Daubenmire as Lakewood High School’s head football coach.

Daubenmire, 61, has been a provocative figure since 1997 when, as coach of London High School, complaints about him praying with the football team prompted the American Civil Liberties Union to sue the district…

He often speaks of manhood and the “sissification” of today’s boys….

Many of those things were brought up last night in Lakewood High’s gym as 22 members of an audience that exceeded 100 stood to speak to the board. Of those impassioned speakers, nine, including Elyzabeth Holford, the executive director of Equality Ohio, urged the board to vote no.

Thirteen spoke in favor of Daubenmire, many of whom cited his success on the field. He coached at Heath High from 1982 to 1988 before taking over at London, where he coached for the next 11 seasons, guiding that team to the playoffs five times between 1992 and 1999.

Most recently, he started the football program at Fairfield Christian Academy in Lancaster in 2008, going 23-8 with two playoff appearances in his final three seasons before he was fired after the 2012 season, citing a difference of opinion with the administration.

“It’s time to get this right,” said Mark Nichols, a football booster. “Our kids deserve the best. Hire the best. I believe that’s Dave Daubenmire.”

Daubenmire, who lives in Hebron and is a Lakewood grad, gave a loud, fiery appeal on his behalf.

Board members Judy White, Trisha Good and Bill Gulick voted against hiring Daubenmire. Tim Phillips and Forrest Cooperrider were in favor of the $5,520 one-year contract.
