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.

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."
