A right-wing Ohio pastor threatened in a Facebook post to sue the NFL over its Super Bowl Halftime Show starring Jennifer Lopez and Shakira, claiming it put him “in danger of hell fire.”
Dave Daubenmire, a former central Ohio high school football coach turned online Christian talk show host, said he plans on suing the NFL, Pepsi, Fox, and several other companies, over the graphic nature of the “crotch-grabbing” halftime show performance on Sunday.
“I think we ought to go sit down in a courtroom and present this as evidence of how whoever is keeping me from getting into the kingdom of Heaven,” Daubenmire said in the video.
“My greatest complaint isn’t the halftime show itself. It’s the fact that the NFL gave no warning. Here we are watching a football game, next thing you know, a porn show breaks out,” said Daubenmire.
The controversial evangelist figures a settlement of $867 trillion would be fair compensation for the “crotch shots” conservative viewers were forced to endure.
“Were there any warnings that your 12-year-old son, whose hormones are getting ready, just starting to operate, were there any warnings that what he was going to see might cause him to get sexually excited?” he raged.
“J-Lo is 50,” he said. “You go on a porn website, you’re not looking for 50-year-old women.”
Daubenmire says he has met with an attorney and plans to move forward with his suit against the NFL.
“Put a warning up there, cautioning parents that some of the content you might see might not be suitable for young children. I personally resent the fact that they invaded the privacy of my home with stuff I would never look at it if I had a choice,” said Daubenmire.
“You can do whatever you want — you can put gay Jesus up there,” Daubenmire said. “Christians are sick of it. They are looking for someone to push back.”
