When I heard “Coach” Dave Daubenmire was organizing a rally at a nearby McDonald’s restaurant I couldn’t resist the urge to stop by and see what all the hubbub was. They were a dedicated bunch of about thirty loons, I’ll give ‘em that because it was nasty, cold, wet and windy. What has their panties in a bunch this time is the recent appearance in central Ohio of billboards that claim “Jesus is Muslim” and “Muslims love Jesus too” sponsored by a group called “Ask a Muslim.” It’s great “Coach” Dave and his hoard are leaving gays alone for a change and going after Muslims instead. He must have learned his lesson after his homophobia backfired on him recently and decided to go after the relatively powerless Muslim minority. Atheists can get the popcorn and watch while primitive Middle Eastern religions duke it out.
Especially fun were the signs saying “REPENT AMERICA” and “COWARDLY GO FIRST!”
The billboard in question is one of those that periodically flashes different signs. In between the ads for Claritin and Monster trucks is the non-offensive message that has “Coach” Dave’s Ohio Taliban up in arms.
I’m sure it’s no coincidence “Coach” Dave chose this particular billboard next to Mcdonald’s because if you’ve ever seen the guy it’s pretty clear gluttony is one of the deadly sins he supports.
