Dave Daubenmire, a veteran 25 year high school football coach,
was spurred to action when attacked and eventually sued by the
ACLU in the late 1990’s for alledgedly mixing prayer with his
coaching. After a two year battle for his 1st amend-ment rights
and a determination to not back down, the ACLU relented and
offered coach an out of court settlement. God honored his stand
and the ACLU backed off. Coach’s courageous stand, an
inspiration to Americans everywhere, demonstrated that the ACLU
can be defeated.
As a result of the experience, Coach heard the call to move out
of coaching a high school team, to the job of coaching God’s
team. PASS THE SALT was formed to encourage the Body of Christ
to step into the cultural war. “For we wrestle not against flesh
and blood...” PASS THE SALT is convinced that God has given the
Body a window of opportunity to take our culture back.
PASS THE SALT is committed to bringing together the body of
Christ across denominational, racial, and economical borders to
demonstrate to America the power of Biblical unity. Our vision
is to unite, organize, and mobilize the Army of God to be SALT
and Light as stated in MATTHEW 5:12.
Challenging the "church of the Status Quo", Pass The Salt is
calling Christians to engage the culture. By taking the fight to
the enemy Coach Daubenmire has become a recognizable voice with
the media as he is an unashamed, articulate, apologist for the
Christian world view. Coach's willingness to stand with Judge
Moore in Alabama, Terri Schiavo in Florida, and the 10
commandments in Washington DC, has enabled him to partner with
some of the nationally known voices in America.
An adjunct professor at Mt. Vernon Nazarene University in Mt.
Vernon, Ohio, Coach is using his knowledge of education and
educational issues to equip Christians to defend the
Judeo-Christian world view. A popular, high-energy speaker,
Coach Daubenmire's motivational lectures, laced with Scripture
verses, is challenging Americans all across the country.
In addition to his weekly radio show, Coach has made regular
national appearances on Hannity and Colmes, CBS Evening News,
Scarborough Country on MSNBC, Fox News, The Edge with Paula Zahn,
Dayside with Linda Vester, and Court TV.
DEATH OF REASON
Note: I am writing this
prior to the election. The results will in no way alter this
During the past week I spent a good deal of time outside the
early voting center in Columbus. I saw the evidence of the
complete breakdown of the election process. The cheating was
obvious to anyone who took the time to notice.
Obama-buses poured into the center weighted down with indigents
from all across Franklin County. As the exited the bus they were
handed a Democrat slate card and herded into the building. No ID
was accepted…notice I didn’t say required…accepted. The poll
workers refused to look at an ID even if you offered one.
Busses full of Somalis were shepherded through. Some were unable
to speak English so they were given a “translator” to “assist”
them in casting their ballot. The “translator” was, of course,
“non-partisan” and was kind enough to help them sign in and fill
out the ballot according to the slate card they had been given.
America is dead, my friends. When voting is easier for a
non-citizen than buying a beer is for a 16 year old you know our
goose is cooked.
