Christian Activist: God Killed Those People In Las Vegas To Punish America For Something Something [VIDEO]

This is the guy whose own son was convicted of possessing child porn. Kyle Mantyla reports at Right Wing Watch:

On his “Pass The Salt Live” webcast this morning, Religious Right activist Dave Daubenmire approvingly quoted radical right-wing preacher James David Manning as he proclaimed that “God killed those people” who died in the mass shooting in Las Vegas.

“I love truth,” Daubenmire said. “Pastor Manning said, ‘Hey, we can deny this all we want to but God killed those people.’ He let [the attack] happen, He killed them. And he said, ‘You go back to the Old Testament and you go through that Old Testament all you want to and you know what you’re going to find out? God ordering people to kill people.’ He said, ‘God orders people to be killed.’”

After the Pulse massacre, Daubenmire declared that Satan “sacrificed some of his own team” so that Obama could grab everybody’s guns. I guess God and Satan are ordering mass murders.

  • If such a thing were ever to be, said divine justice would’ve been for the blasphemy of electing Donald J Trump—and then worse, falsely claiming he’s a good and godly man.

  • JT

    Your god sounds like a monster. And he’s made in your image.

  • Rex

    So, what’s this guy’s end game? Is he trying to convince people to join his version of religion? Certainly not making it very appealing.

    • Johnny Wyeknot

      Some sort of grift, you can be sure.

    • chrisl

      His show will have a money beg they all do.

  • Tawreos

    Why hasn’t this guy suffocated? I didn’t realize the ass held enough oxygen to survive

    • ted-

      I’ll settle for a brain tumor. But, some might argue he is a tumor.

  • Rex

    Anyone presenting the gospel through fear tactics is doing it wrong.

    • ted-

      Him and his god is a dick tis all…

    • chrisl

      Anyone presenting the gospel is doing wrong, religion is ignorance, hate and greed.

  • Talisman

    Your God is an psychopath. He’s made in your own image.

    • David Walker

      Not only that, but his “religious advisers” is the fucking asshole at the ATLAH “church” in Harlem…remember ol’ Satan’s Semen Lattes served at Starbucks?

      • JT

        Harping on the Old Testament as “I’m not gay” preacher Manning does, I suppose semen lattes were what made Moses go crazy when he came down from the mount.

      • JaniceInToronto

        O/T Speaking of which, has his church been foreclosed on yet?
        It’s been real quite from ATLAH…

          Controversial Atlah Church Avoids Foreclosure Once Again

          ‘…. effectively putting the sale and judgment of foreclosure on hold until there is a determination of whether the church can be taxed.’

          The church taxation question seems to have been lost in the NY legal system.

          • Bluto

            I call shenanigans. A water bill is not a tax. If nothing else then cut off their supply.
            I was threatened with shutoff once by being just 1 week late for $50 owed. I pleaded for another week extention cuz I just spent every dime I had, my dignity & left nut to keep my kid in college. I was told to go fuck myself. How many 10’s of thousands does this asshole owe?

          • JaniceInToronto

            That’s pretty disgusting.

  • JoyZeeBoy

    He’s looking for answers, but doesn’t want to have to think too hard about it.

    • David Walker

      If you’ve read the bible as often as he has and listened to Truly Religious Preachers like Manning, the answers are obvious. Connect the dots right and Jeebus returns in 10 minutes.

    This man lives and lovely good people are gunned down. Some things I will never understand.

    • Johnny Wyeknot

      One thing it mean is there is NO God.

  • Joe

    God’s punishing Murica for all the faux Christians following false prophets.

  • Jake

    He looks like the kind of guy who has people locked in his basement

    • David Walker

      Or in the crawl space.

  • Rex

    Does God give side-eye, cause I kinda imagine him doing that right now.

  • Ken M

    No that’s what I call collusion.

  • Halou

    So indict god, have the self-appointed representatives stand up in a court of law and justify their personal imaginary friend. We do it for anyone else who has voices in their heads telling them to violate secular law.

  • JWC

    Ok there is a another definition of bat shit crazy

  • Kevin Perez

    He’s right though. Go back through the Old Testament and God murders millions; countable millions of people. Men, women, children, “suckling babies”, cattle. That’s just the poor Amalekites. Then there was that whole flood thing. His God is a douche.

  • Ninja0980

    And people wonder why more and more folks are turning away from religion.

  • Johnny Wyeknot

    Finally, a motive!

    • David Walker

      LVPD is on it!

  • Ken M

    House cleaning to single out the truly faithful. That means a very large percent or the planets population won’t be here. Who are these fools going to convert then, much less get their money from?

    “I love truth.”
    Truth is, you don’t have a clue or a heart.

    Obviously, God is punishing America because Daubenmire’s son had kiddie porn.

  • BearEyes

    He claims to love truth then contradicts himself

  • shellback

    I love truth as well – that’s why I call religious folk “mentally ill.”

  • WNY

    His god sounds like a total asshole

  • Ken M

    Much like the prodigal son. God is welcoming Lucifer (who he kicked out) back into heaven. They can’t even keep their basic stories straight. Raised Catholic, but I always loved SciFi.

  • Galvestonian

    Hey asshole — it wasn’t God that killed those people – it was some nut job with a bunch of guns — wake the fuck up, dumbass.

  • HeyYouKidsGetOffMyLawn

    Wow, a talking sphincter.

    • grada3784

      Spicer is back?

  • djcoastermark

    And people like him just can’t get it through their thick skulls why I want nothing to with their god. Their god isn’t someone I want to hang out with that’s for sure.

  • Ken M

    God and Satan working together. Can’t handle it alone? There goes that “All Powerful” theory.

  • Prost Seattle

    Let me get this straight: People voluntarily sit at church to listen to this sh!t? No wonder Monday’s suck.

    • Octoberfurst

      Especially the part where “Coach” Dave says that just because you are a Christian you aren’t exempt from God killing you. You would think that would go over like a lead balloon. Yeah that is the kind of God I wanna worship. One who will murder me for no good reason except to somehow “teach America a lesson.” Fuck your God Davey boy!

      • Snarkaholic

        I once read a J. Witness brochure (I was bored(!), and it stated that only 144,000 people will go to heaven. That church already has a worldwide membership of 8.34 million, so why would I waste my time on a religion that offered such crappy odds?

        • TCinBerkeley

          If they let EVERY good person in, it would lower real estate values in Heaven (a gated community) and you know what that would lead to?!?!

          RENT CONTROL! WHITES & PEOPLE OF NON-WHITE SKIN COLOR EXISTING NEXT DOOR TO EACH OTHER! POTLUCKS MIGHT INCLUDE “SPICY” OR CURRIED HOTDISHES! (okay, that last is not true because the JW are not big on the whole idea of celebrations – went to high school with a few and they always stayed home on any day that had a planned celebration. The only ones more miserable were the 7th Day Adventists.)

        • Octoberfurst

          Makes ya wonder why so many do!

        • Paul

          As an exJW they mean the rest get to live on earth after it’s been cleansed of the ‘worldlies’. They don’t explain whether that would involve making big fires of bodies etc.

      • wmforr

        Well, when he burned everyone alive in Sodom, he killed the infants in arms, too. If he hates the guilty, he doesn’t much care about the innocent either.

    • Paula

      They probably have to pay admission to get into his stadium events.

    • Puck

      Those people love this crap. It vindicates their hatred and empowers them belittle others. It makes them feel normal. God is on my side! The bible says I can kill people if god wills it! I am too weak to kill them so I will just beat them up and make their lives a living hell! That is their mentality. Then you have the other christians that say their god is loving and he accepts all, yada yada yada! Well your bible doesn’t give acceptions, either you follow and live it EXACTLY or shut the heck up about jesus and his crap.

      It is like saying I am against slavery but it would be nice to have a couple to clean and do the yard work and I would treat the very nice!

  • JAKvirginia

    First off, Butthead, there’s Old and New Testament. New replaces Old. Got it? Or shall I have Jesus explain it to you… again!

    And one more thing, you seem to believe in a God that enjoys killing as punishment. You realize that, don’t you? You believe in a God that kills. Wow.

  • No More GOP.

      Who is HARMED, in any way, by the removal of this goddamned symbol of OPPRESSION??

      History is not erased because a statue comes down. Evil is not forgotten because there are no statues up to CELEBRATE it!!

      Are there statues up to celebrate Hitler or Stalin, or John Wilkes Booth or Lee Harvey Oswald? Are they forgotten??

      Should Russia or other states that lived at one time under Soviet rule be forbidden to take down statues of Lenin??

      • clay

        state tax-payers arguing for a state law. Personally, I think the VA state AG would be the correct party, and if Mark Herring (D) doesn’t want to spend VA state resources on it, too fucking bad.

        BTW, the judge said they tax-payers will have to prove that it’s a war monument, not a personal monument to VA’s Gen. Lee, for the state law to protect it.

    Fuck MS, that is all.
    By the way, you want to see why elections and the courts matter?
    This is it.
    This law was heard by a conservative court that would uphold it, therefore it’s going to SCOTUS.
    And by the time it gets there, I fear Trump will have made SCOTUS into a court that will gladly uphold this.

    • billbear1961

      Go to the Supreme Court to ask for a stay.

    • billbear1961

      If it’s upheld, this country will no longer be a genuine democracy.

      You cannot accept such fascist laws–they should meet with massive and relentless protests.

      They’re as evil as the Jim Crow laws of the past.

      Accept them–bow down to them–and you are SERFS at the mercy of a government of fascist THUGS.

  • Lee Grupsmith-Pedersen

    If we’re bringing up the Hebrew Bible (OT my fat aunt Jocunda), didn’t Lot try to spare Sodom and Gomorrah by arguing that if there was even ONE decent person there everyone should be spared?

    • Lizard

      Something something Old Testament something something.

    • andrew

      That was Abraham. Lot did offer up his two daughters for the men of Sodom to f*ck, so that they would not f*ck the two visiting angels/men. Later on he got drunk and impregnated his two daughters. The New Testament calls Lot a just man. The Bible is just full of juicy and often wicked myths. Some people call it the “Good Book.” Talk about spin.

    • grada3784

      Abraham and it was 10 righteous men.

    Nah…let’s blame it on gays butt-fucking, because your gawd like to punish the innocent for other people’s “sins.” /s

  • Bj Lincoln

    We created the gods and goddesses. They are a reflection of ourselves. Mine is about beauty, love kindness and so on. Yours is all about the bad things humans can think to do to other humans and not care who gets hurt. That says a LOT about you. You might want to look at what you have created.

  • Mike_in_the_Tundra

    I know that several times The Bible says that God is love. If you love someone, you don’t kill them.

    • andrew

      He may be crazy but his comments about the murderous god of the Old Testament are accurate. The tribal god of the ancient Israelites is perhaps the vilest of any of the mythological gods created by primitive men. Read through the O.T. and you will see a god who slaughters and orders his followers to slaughter an almost countless number of people.

      • Mike_in_the_Tundra

        I agree, but Christians live under the new covenant which is the New Testament.

        • andrew

          The Old Testament is the very foundation of the New Testament. If Christians believe that Christ is God, he was the very same murderous God we read about in the Old Testament. It’s all mythology invented by ancient primitive human minds. To imagine that a creator, of the known universe with it’s hundreds of billions of galaxies, has anything to do with any of these religions created by men, in their own image and likeness, is an insult to the actual creator, if there be one.

          • Mike_in_the_Tundra

            You should debate Kyle.

    • grada3784

      That would piss off so many Christians that just want to love us to death.

  • KevInPDX

    Why does the old testament get dragged up so much? The new testy was “developed” and embraced by Christies and the old book thrown out. Or am I missing something?

    • andrew

      You’re missing the fact that all Christian religions teach that the Old and New Testaments are the inspired word of God, the creator of the universe. The contradictions in each testament and between them are quite numerous. It seems to me quite clear that the entire bible is mostly a collection of myths created by primitive men and the god Yahweh is no more real than Baal, Zeus or any other of the hundreds of gods created by men.

      • grada3784

    The answer to the religious liberty laws:

    “You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’
    But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also.

    And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well.

    If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles.

    Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.
    “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’

    But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the
    good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.

    If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that?

    And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that?

    Also:

    “But woe to you who are rich, for you have already received your comfort.
    Woe to you who are well fed now, for you will go hungry.
    Woe to you who laugh now, for you will mourn and weep.
    Woe to you when everyone speaks well of you, for that is how their ancestors treated the false prophets.
