Mental Illness on Parade

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!”

IMG_0737I couldn’t quite make out where the cowardly were going first but wondered if they meant the strip club next door.

IMG_0736The 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.


About AnonAtheist

I'm a past middle aged man who woke up a few years ago and realized all religion is nonsense. Why did I come to this decision? Because of my kids. As a good father, I had an obligation to research at least the locally predominant Christian religion before I decided what to tell my children about it. After reading as much of the Bible as I could stand it was obvious. Religion is a load of malarkey. Enjoy my blog!

    Hey there! I’ve seen you around the atheist blogs but didn’t know you had one of your own. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the Daubenmire Debacle AKA Coach Dave vs. Lakewood BOE. I’ve known Daubenmire for a long time – family connection – and watching him grow more and more delusional over time has been very entertaining. Two weeks after Lakewood voted not to hire him, he interviewed with a Rev. Manning claiming that his intention was to bring prayer back to the public schools. Isn’t this exactly why people didn’t want him in the first place? He has a long history of troublemaking (Heath, London, Fairfield Christian). He’s his own worst enemy! And all the complaining and blaming he did! After 25 years of coaching, you’d think he’d know to be a better sport. A month after the decision, Daubenmire was back at the BOE complaining that they didn’t treat him fairly and his reputation, as well as his family, has suffered. He ruined his own reputation, with his son’s help, and he’ll never figure that out. Mary M
