‘Coach’ Dave Meets Linda Harvey


“Coach” Dave Daubenmire is still whining about the fact that he didn’t get another football coaching job after being fired from the first two he held. He went on the radio with uber-bigot Linda Harvey and declared that his critics are “of their father, the Devil.” And then lots of ignorant and bigoted ranting against gay people and everyone else.

Harvey: These are the folks that are the biggest bullies of all …

Daubenmire: To stand up and blatantly and boldly and without a conscience right at your face, I don’t know how people can do that other than they’re of their father, the Devil and the works of their father they will do. That’s the only way I can explain it.

Harvey: I truly believe that’s the case too. These folks are not operating out of a Christian goodness of anybody’s heart because they do not love the truth

Daubenmire: What ever happened to shame, Linda? See, there was a day when someone would not come out of the closet because it was shameful. You didn’t want people to know that about you. And unfortunately, sexual behavior is a behavior, it’s not an orientation, it’s a behavior. And you and I know that many of the people who are caught in the homosexual lifestyle, Linda, they’re switch-hitters. They swing both ways. So I ask people, are you born bi-sexual? Are you born a pedophile? I mean, we’ve got to begin thinking this stuff through, especially as Christians and unfortunately we just have not given a great deal of thought to it but rather just swallow what the liberals try to cram down our throat.

Linda, I have people say to me, you know, they say all the time Coach that you discriminate. I say tell me where the discrimination is. I can’t marry a man and the guy next door to me can’t marry a man. Either one of us can marry a woman.

They say you guys get to marry the one you love. I say that’s not true. I can’t marry my daughter. I can’t marry three women. I can’t marry my son. I can’t marry whoever I want to just because of love. That’s not it. But see again, we’re not real clear in our own thinking about some of the lines that they’re hooking us up with.

Harvey: The reason this agenda is advancing is because people are willfully ignorant.

Poor Dave, having stuff crammed down his throat all the time.

    Hey, Coach Dave? If homosexuality is a choice — as you so ardently believe — that everyone has the ability to make, then that implies everyone is in fact born bisexual. If everyone were born straight, as you also seem to believe, then nobody would have the desire nor the capacity for being tempted by homosexuality.

    What ever happened to shame, Linda?

    I find myself asking the same question as I’m reading this transcript.

    “…just swallow what the liberals try to cram down our throat.”

    But, of course, Daubenmire would never stoop to cramming.

    Quite possibly, or to be more precise I do think that who or what turns you on is largely innate whether literally fixed at birth or the result of later factors. People do not pick a sexuality the way they pick items off a menu.

    So, I was going to make a joke about this, but I can’t really get myself to. It speaks for itself.

    Yo, “Coach.” don’t forget, verbs are important. Your first attempt at a sentence fails miserably.

    .
    Of course if they had talked about him behind his back he would have called them cowards.

    Coach, it’s likely that some people are born pedophiles (or at least are made so), but if they are moral they never become child molesters. I am attracted to athletic human females, but I don’t attack women jogging down the sidewalk.It’s not desires that are moral or immoral, but our actions.
    .
    There is no reason why two adults attracted to each other shouldn’t be allowed to act on it, including long term commitments like marriage. But again, to the authoritarian mind, informed consent is irrelevant.

    If gay people existing free from persecution is “cramming” homosexuality down Coach’s throat, when can I complain about the Tea Party cramming their frothy mix of Randian libertarianism and evangelical Xianity down the country’s throat?

    Their poor affronted omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent god is just so totally helpless that I wonder how he ever got his job as Supreme Being.

    I bet he finds it hard to swallow, too.

    W’all be. I think Dave just ran the old “Suicide Play”:

    –>Daubenmire up the middle; everybody else, off the field<–

    (with apologies to Bill Cosby when he was still making comedy albums out of vinyl and great stand up material)
