Jennifer Lopez at the Superbowl Halftime Performance
Dave Daubenmire intends to sue the NFL for $867 trillion dollars for putting his soul in jeopardy.

Criticizing the Super Bowl Halftime Show has become its own side sport. But one particularly outraged Christian activist is taking his concern to a whole other level.

Sporting a red baseball cap with a solid black cross emblazoned across it, right-wing radio host Dave Daubenmire took to his “Pass the Salt LIVE” podcast to announce he's planning to sue the National Football League for subjecting his immortal soul to fifteen minutes of provocative “crotch-grabbing” dancing courtesy of the Superbowl halftime show. His argument? Watching a few minutes of Shakira and Jennifer Lopez sing and dance may ultimately prevent him “from getting into the kingdom of Heaven.”

“I think we ought to sue,” said Daubenmire, still calm and collected at the offset.

“Would that halftime show, would that have been rated PG? Were there any warnings that your 12-year-old son—whose hormones are just starting to operate – was there any warning that what he was going to see might cause him to get sexually excited?”

A passage from Matthew 18 flashes on the screen. And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire.  

Anger Over 'Crotch Shots'

Daubenmire starts to lose his cool about a minute in. All hell breaks loose.

“Could I go into a courtroom and say, ‘Viewing what you put on that screen put me in danger of hellfire’? Could the court say, ‘That doesn’t apply here because the right to [produce] porn overrides your right to [not] watch it’? Yeah, well, you didn’t tell me I was gonna watch it! You just brought it into my living room. You didn’t tell me there were gonna be crotch shots! That’s discriminatory against the value I have in my house. You can’t just do that. I wanna sue them for about $867 trillion.”

By the end of the rant, Daubenmire is visibly angered, shouting and pointing at the camera aggressively.

Let's put the dollar amount aside for one moment. This is not just another conservative Christian one-off rant. Daubenmire has already posted a follow-up video, seeking a lawyer to file a class-action lawsuit against Pepsi, the NFL, and his local cable company.

In case you missed it, the full halftime show can be viewed below. Warning: Watch at risk of eternal damnation.

Things Get Weird

That was just the tip of the iceberg. Daubenmire’s videos got stranger as the week went on and he faced considerable backlash in the media for his outlandish threat.

On Monday, he said that Jennifer Lopez is simply too old to be dancing in such a provocative manner. “J-Lo is 50,” he began, “you go on a porn website, you’re not looking for 50-year-old women.” 

It begs the question: When is one too old to dance? Shakira is only 43 - perhaps that’s better?

Daubenmire then said on Thursday his Twitter inbox has been flooded with lewd images in response to his righteous fury over seeing a little skin during the halftime show. “I’ve seen pictures of large penises and I appreciate it,” he said sarcastically, “but no, I don’t want to receive any of them… The offers that you guys have to come by and put it where the sun don’t shine in my bun.”

And just in case there was any doubt, he clarified: “I’m not a closet homosexual. I don’t sit around and watch gay porn.”

A Sign of Moral Decline?

It’s easy to laugh at Daubenmire’s outrageous hyperbole and the king’s ransom he intends to sue for, but he was hardly the only critic of the halftime show. Famed evangelist Franklin Graham wrote this more measured criticism on Facebook, which has been shared nearly 100,000 times:

The outfits were undoubtedly revealing, the dance moves a bit risqué, but is the halftime show really a sign of America’s “moral decline”? Or is this all just fake outrage?

    Franklin Graham is upset over the half time show, but has no problem shilling for an admitted serial adulterer and crotch grabber. What a hipocrite.

    "Our country has a sense of moral decency"? This guy is definitely joking. We have a deranged sexual predator and adulterer in our White House who lacks any sense of morality in any shape or form. Graham is just mad because his wife probably caught him masturbating to the half time show.

    It seems to me that only people with dirty minds who feel guilty about where their own thoughts are going could possibly be offended by watching beautiful , young ladies dance, even if they were as naked and seductive as they were in my guilt-free mind, as I was dancing in front of my T.V. to the song "She's My Cherry Pie"! He'll undoubtedly be laughed out of court.

      I agree with your thoughts, William, but he states he did not know there would be women entertainers letting cameras display their covered crotches. I'm sure he would have turned off his television during half time if he'd been warned, and that he did so about 35 seconds in when the first crotch shot made its appearance. 😋

    It was the best half time show ever. So inspiring to see two very talented women over 40 with amazing bodies and skill. The best part was the image of children in gages to illistrate what Hitler Trump is still doing to innocent children and it will get worse unless he is stopped by the senate republicans. The hypocrits like Graham and GOP, cult45 and 90% of republicans is beyound disturbing. He should sue Fox and maybe get the Fake news shut down People should stop watching FOX TV anyway.

    Personally, I don't know what the old farts are angry about, but Mr. Daubenmire is right - he didn't know those two entertainers would show display their covered crotches during the half-time show. I suppose he thought all views would be head shots. If so, he would have found something to whine about with those.

    I wonder, though, what his morals really are. He apparently condones the game, the most violent team sport available, in which bloody fights among players often erupts and whose players are, more and more, being charged with violent crimes. He knows ahead of time that cheerleaders will be prancing about with even smaller costumes covering their crotches for him and his children to watch. Seriously, where's the line?

    And Graham? Suffice it to say that he may be a christian, but he does not follow the words or tenets of Christ.

      The real moral decline is not just that faux christians like Daubenmire and Graham to try to foist their brand of religion on the rest of the country, but that so many other fanatics support them.

    I'm sorry, but that is an unnecessary fight. We turn off the TV if we don't like it. Elvis did that his entire career, which granted him the nickname Elvis the Pelvis at one point. The girls were better dressed than they sometimes are on the streets. Besides, they are artists, and artists many times have to do what the producers want. NFL's game was in Miami this time, where the latino population is prevalent. Culturally speaking (I'm a latino myself), latinos don't feel offended by that kind of dance. They understand it is just a dance. Let's fight higher battles. I myself feel that Hollywood and other media creators always choose a catholic church to desecrate when they show a horror movie, a crime movie, a comedy, or anything that offends Christians. Why not be politically correct and use a mosque, a synagogue, a budhist temple, an indian temple, for a change?

    Graham mentions "to protect the children". I ask, "protect the children from what?"

    There’s an old joke that goes …

    “Why don’t Baptists have sex standing up?”

    “It could lead to ‘dancing’!”

    In conservative Chrsitian™ circles, “dancing” is always a problem. The natural gyrations and seductive glances, heck, Elvis was not permitted to be seen “dancing” on live television.

    Shakira and Jennifer Lopez are pop culture goddesses. They know how to use what they’ve been given to enchant their audience, and they do it well.

    Throughout history, ascetic Christians™ have had certain difficulty (cognitive dissonance) with their own sexual being, and have looked to blame others for their natural urges and proclivities. They cannot reconcile their teachings with human sexuality and their own desires. From such a repressed sexuality is why we continue to hear of so much inappropriate sexual conduct among the leadership of Christendom today.

    The passion (anger) drives fanatics like Graham and Daubenmire mad. However, it’s not what goes in (the stimulus), but what comes out of the heart (actions) which defiles the man.

    It's not okay but it's in 4K! Blessed are the moral men who chastise the evil that sprays our living rooms! It took me several viewings to understand the dark theme of carnal temptation. Imagine hellfire if you can. In modern terms, it must be like transforming oneself into an old weiner turning endlessly on an interstate gas station's "food" section. On and on! Ugh! And that Lopez woman! 50 years old! Rutting around like her knees and hips are nimble and nubile! She must have been drugged! Older people simply CANNOT perform as such without drugs! Those people (not us) probably aren't even Americans! Please! We need to stand together and force those people to wear scarlet letters! Maybe the letter "D" for (gasp) "Dancer" would do it. On a slightly different and happier note, my 4K television performed admirably... Wasn't there a football game mixed in with all that smut?

    The man admits in his follow video that he didn't even watch it on Super Bowl Sunday, "because of past Super Bowls", but went to watch the video after the fact online. So it seems to me that he invited this into his home intentionally. He doesn't have a case like he thinks and it will not change anything. I am sorry for how sexually repressed he must be. What I don't really understand was the fact he was complaining about the age of J-Lo and Shakira. Would he have been fine with the performance if the singers were younger?

      Yes sir, he absolutely would be very fine watching much younger women. I wouldn't be shocked if he'd be very happy with under age children on stage. There is so much that is off about this creepy old man. Everything that comes out of this sleaze bags mouth is a big, bright red flag. What gets me, is that he is so concerned about the age of women and how it's inappropriate for women to do anything if they're over 25, but it's appropriate for him as an elderly "reverend" to be porn surfing for young girls. Dude is biologically old enough to be JLo and Shakiras dad but he tears them down for their age. I thought he was 80, he looks so thrashed. Turns out he's not that much younger than 80 years walked before Jesus.

    The Super Bowl half-time show was sexually suggestive, provocative and immoral. My kids had no warning of the immodesty, the skin; the innuendos that saturated the performances. The women's behavior was coarse , obscene and titillating in nature. If their routine needed risque support, then their singing and dancing competence is in serious question.

      So, instead of turning it off at the first hint of sexually suggestion, provocative and immoral acts, you continued to watch with your kids and continued to expose them to the heinous acts. Shame on you. You should be reported for exposing your children to such pornography.

      1. flugo's Avatar flugo

        Both you, 'muck', and 'carless' are academically and intellectually deficient. You both insinuated I watched the ENTIRE show WITH my kids. NO where in my posting did I hint of THEIR watching the ENTIRE show. You are dishonest and irresponsible in your erroneous blather.

          Wow, real adult name-calling, there, flugo.

          Based on your ire and rants, in which you did not state you took the adult action of turning off what you found offensive, the only conclusion is that you DID watch the entire show, exposing your children to what you whine about.

          And, still, you rant without denying that you are guilty.

          Tsk, tsk. But still entertaining, 🤣

        2. Danielle 's Avatar Danielle

          Really flugo?? LMAO! Nobody is impressed by you girlfriend. Maybe you should try turning off the TV or changing the channel like a normal person would. You sound like a sick pervert describing the halftime show and how you were watching it with your kids. Before you insult people, try sounding less like an agressive predator, and more like an actual concerned parent. Also, start "spielling" (spelling) correctly. "Carless" definition means you have no car, it's "nowhere", not "no where", "womens" not "women's", "careless" not "carless". Another thing, we all know you and your kids have seen far worse than the halftime show, there's something called the internet. And you know you've done a million times worse than just watch porn on the internet. YOU are responsible for your children, not everyone else. Stop blaming, shaming, and judging the world for your horrible parenting skills. You're already teaching your kids to be hateful, judgemental, hypocrites just like you.

        Sure and as the song says "HE watched" It was not shown as such nor was it broadcast on the halftime show. And again nobody forced you to watch it if they did. So if they had shown this and you watched it, then its your own fault as there were plenty of other things for you to watch or you could have just turned off your TV.

            The human soul is a part of "GOD" given to us by the "CREATOR" upon conception in the mothers womb. Like all living things on earth it is a form of energy, divine energy Its purpose is to live the life ordained for it by the "CREATOR" how ever on Earth "You " as a human being have free will to choose your path. GOD resides inside all humans all we must do is follow his path if we want to in the end of our short time on earth reside with him. That is why we teach prayer and meditation which is the spiritual connection with GOD the Creator with Jesus Christ as our Attorney at Judgement. The World is Sin our Human,Hearts and Minds are sinful by design.

            For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. These entities are real but they are all beholden to Christ. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me including "EXORCISMS" GOD the Father GOD the Son GOD the Holy Spirit is who comforts and communicates and brings clarity to our"HIGHER SELF". Belief is required to unlock the power of GOD in yourself but you must allow it to happen.

              Well, I read your reply, thank you. I notice your references seem to relate to some sort of deity, which unless you have some sort of demonstrable evidence that the deity exists, and you can point to some sort of reliable source as to where you are getting your information from, it has to remain just as much of a mythical deity as Mithra, Odin, Thor, Krishna, and possibly even fairies etc,. It is an interesting story though. I wonder if followers of these other mythical deities have a different thought as to what a soul is.

              Your god sounds like a petty, jealous, petulant child that constantly proclaims "Love me or else I'll punish you!" It's like a woman in an abusive relationship; your religion constantly tells you how worthless you are and that you're all "sinners" and that only by becoming slaves to an invisible sky wizard can you ever hope to be "saved." Worship him, praise him, love and adore him and get rewarded with heaven; fail to do this and you'll be sorry! Don't you find it odd that the two tools of control of your religion are a carrot and a stick? The carrot of heaven and the threat of hell as the stick. You're treated like a herd animal and you just fall in line like a good little sheep and never question all the bullshit that the worst book ever written spews to you and give in to the collective delusion of god. Oh and before you accuse me of ignorance, I was an avid christian, went to church, went to all my church functions and said my "hallelujahs" and my "amens" Then one day I read the bible cover to cover and questioned how a supposing loving god could hold an entire planet hostage for his own validations. How he could visit atrocities and murder on people he professed to love. No one has ever given me an answer as to why god kills innocent children and babies with horrible painful diseases. The standard answers is "He works in mysterious ways" Bullshit. There's nothing mysterious about murder. Use your minds, if you were created, you were created with capacity to use reason, apply logic, and ask questions. Religion is a rejection of all the things that make us human and you're asked to accept a false reality based on zero facts and supported only by a pillar of belief. If god were real and true shouldn't have all civilizations have come to the same conclusion? But religion is taught, not realized. All civilization realized math, facts about the world around us, etc. Yet only the western world has christianity and it is spread through a manifest destiny policy that preaches fear as it's primary recruitment tool "follow our god or he'll punish you." The truth is, the vast majority of people are born into their religion. They are indoctrinated into their cult by their parents and people they trust. They never question its validity, because why would the people I trust lie to me. Thankfully society is starting to break those chains of mental slavery. People are questioning and not accepting a premise without proof. Evidence and facts trump wishes and feelings.

      So, Captain Burgess, let your Jesus do his job. Stop trying to usurp his mission by trying to do it for him.

    It's called turn it off or Change the channel. God gave man free will if you new this why didn't you use your free will and shut it off. All I can say is you must have enjoyed it and now your trying to blame Pepsi & the NFL for your problems. Take responsibility for your own sexual drives and ask GODS forgiveness.

    I don’t think he should be suing, but a formal complaint would be sufficient. I too look forward to the half time show at the super bowl and the commercials. But, this show was all about women sexuality, almost on the form of women dancers in a strip joint but they didn’t strip. It was geared towards men, it was sexual and less entertainment. Women don’t want to watch other woman on stage acting as strippers without stripping. We want to hear their voice and their words and some dancing is great, but why does it have to be a sexual dance? It was not meant for children to see either. It was not family entertainment and watching the super bowl is family time for so many families. Their venue would be appropriate for a concert for adults only. I won’t sue but I will say that these talented lovely women just set us woman back to the days of sexually exploiting ourselves to men to get the money from the man. I’m not being a prude. I’m a Mom looking for these two talents to out on a great show, not a strip show without the stripping. My husband didn’t even care for it. He said “no one has beat Katy Perry’s performance yet.” Now, they was a good show. Katy Perry put on a fantastic show. Wish they would bring her back. You will be entertained.

    Sure is a lot of harsh and hateful statements on this site from all sides. What ever happened to Christianity? I don’t mind watching the NFL. I don’t even mind (some of) the half time shows. What happened to family values and family entertainment? Upon realizing what this half time show was all about, me and my 6 YEAR OLD grandson got up and walked out. Had it been my house, the tv would’ve been turned off. NO MORE half time shows for me unless it’s just plain, good old fashioned music. OK, I’m finished. You good Christians may now spew your vile.

    Trump comments about sex and women, where was the church ? Trump out right lies to the American people, where is the church ? Unarmed people being killed by the police, where was the church ? Young kids and babies being taken away from their families, where is the church ? Kids Being shot down in schools, where was the church ? Where was the church ? The church has gotten more involved into politics. Today's church is more involved in politics then it is saving souls. Repub vs Dems. Today's America it's anything goes. Young America is only following suite and they are the future of this country. Is it to late to talk about young people and a sex filled Superbowl ? Look at everything else that's going on around us everyday !

    This is a person that refuses to take responsibility for his own actions. Whether he was watching on TV or was watching the game in person, he could have turned his eyes away and not watched it. He freely chose of his own volition to watch the entire thing. HE put himself "in danger of eternal fire and damnation." No one else did it. Just another case of men blaming women or men's lack of self-control.

    All I can say to him is....f you want to watch that at least take responsibility for your own behavior. Whatever God you believe in knows the truth, that you could have turned your eyes away from it but you freely chose to watch it. Don't try to pass yourself off as holier than than thou because you're not.

    American culture has a very lop-sided distorted view of what is sensual while ignoring what is inherently sacred in human sexuality. We need lots of open dialogues to transcend our sexual repression and free our society from the Madonna-Whore dichotomy. Although women are increasing their power in society and as consumers most of what is considered "sexy" is aimed at male audiences and women frequently participate in a sad game of promoting more dysfunctional sexuality by reducing their talents in singing and dancing to repetitive hip grinding, pelvic thrusting routines that are really boring by comparison with well choreographed and substantially classier entertainment suitable for all tastes and ages. Sex is Creator in action yet so-called Christians have demonized women from Eve to Jesus' Mary Magdalen all the way to present day, restricting priests from marriage and prohibiting women from becoming Priests in various branches and generally wrecking havoc upon society by maligning open sexuality and pushing SEX to the 'darkness' hidden from view. This year's halftime show doesn't stand out as very different than the any number of half-time shows with scantily clad cheerleaders. However I do not like the juxtaposition of men doing battle on the football field with highly charged sexy shows for a completely separate reason, namely the not-so-subtle violence it lends to an already male dominated perspective of pleasuring themselves sexually rather than healthy robust celebrations of life-giving JOY.

    Wow, so now it is not enough to find reasons to be offended in halftime. Now the political hacks have to add their own venom with Presidential insults. Maybe some of you need to NOT be on THIS site if you have such a strong need to voice your political regurgitation. There are certainly enough sites like HuffPost, Pop Sugar, The Beast and most the the TV Networks for you to try impress people with your rhetoric and preferred political failings. But, with respect to Mr Graham and Dave Daubenmire maybe someone should inform them that their TV's not only have a mute but an off switch as well the the ability to turn the channel. I grew up with Ozzie and Harriet having separate beds, never saying a "bad" word and were not allowed to say the word "pregnant". Life and values move on no matter how much i don't want it to. When in the military I was stationed in several Europe countries. They have porn on TV, have nude or topless beaches and are not afraid to speak of sex. It is not my CHOICE but I also chose not to hide my head in the sand (or in the Jewish science fiction bible). I am an old guy who wishes we could return to simpler and more cordial times. But that's progress.....and I hate it and accept it.
