I hope they do not take him back. He is not a positive role model - he swears to lies on the Bible and greed is his driving force in life. I would pull my kids out of that school if he returns.

I completely agree. My son attends a private Catholic high school here in Maryland, and I would never want Dan coaching him. He's a terrible role model.

Dan is an awful catholic. It makes a mockery reading the bible and lying. He should be fired for making a mockery of religion
John September 14, 2012 at 08:16 AM
It is sad that he is so "religious" yet still is so evil towards people. Total hypocrite of religion, being a good person and what a leader should be. He says it's a game but I think it truly shows his true colors and how greedy of a person he is. I would certainly not want him teaching/coaching my children. I really hope he does not win the money. If he does, I hope he gives it all away to people whom actually deserve and need the money. Then, I might have a tad bit more of respect for the disgusting person that he is.

Thank goodness people have paid attention to Dan's behavior! Some may say Big Brother is just a game. The problem is he coaches young people, AND he's employeed at St. Marys representing the catholic faith. Is St. Mary's listening?? Parents please have a conversation with your kids that his behavior is NOT appropriate for a coach or a Catholic.

I was never a Dan fan on BB, but after this current season, the school REALLY needs to look at the behavior of Dan in the house. His integrity and morals are quite lacking for someone who is supposed to be a role model to young people. According to the school's mission statement, Dan does not fit the bill. I understand that it's 'just a game', but where do you draw the line. I have the live feeds and am a Christian, and it is NEVER appropriate to do what he has done and continues to do, for the love of money. God provides for our needs. Does he not have faith enough to get that? To say he is doing this to better his life for his family is an excuse. Money, and the dangling dollar signs before his eyes are 'misting' his relationship with our Creator. People are wrongly respecting him to the point of worshipping him. This is all very sad to me. The school should really take an honest look into this, and not be proud, just because one of their own is on TV about to take a half million dollars while selling his soul. I am in the process of converting to Catholicism, and I know enough to know that God does NOT see his actions as just a game. Thank you for taking the time to read this. It ia from my heart, not from a 'bitter' BB fan whose favorite person was evicted. Missy

Very well said...agree 100%!
Doglover390 September 14, 2012 at 09:52 PM
Am I like the only person in the world that want Dan to win?? I was only mad at Dan once, for voting off Shane... But seriously, he's an awesome player and no he didn't rely swear on the bible! He swor that there was the "quack pack" and that every thing he was telling Frank was real and he did not say anything wrong to Frank!!! So please stop writing bad things about him and keep your bad comments to yoursef!!! >:( .....people thease days....
Doglover390 September 14, 2012 at 09:55 PM
(...People thease days...) jk i re read it and it sounded mean. :P

I as a religious person have a very tough time seeing a a coach/teacher representing St. Marys on on a reality show all the while using 4 letter curse words whenever he feels like it, drinking alcohol, using women's emotions against them, swearing on the word of God which in my opinion the Bible is very Holy and should NEVER be used for your own personal motives of Greed. My son who will be entering High School next year wanted to attend St Marys however I will NEVER allow my son to attend a school who does not seem to have any issues with a man who chooses to go on a realty tv show to do whatever it takes to win half a million dollars even though this person lies daily, curses, sat around drinking alcohol as well as the other things that the coach sees fit to do so that he can bring home the money. Maybe this shows us more about St. Marys than we may have know. Could it be that they are fine with Dan's behavior since they will benefit off of Dan winning the money which would be donated to the church for his tithing. In everyday life we teach our young men that it is never ok to lie, speak with curse words, drink alcohol, treat women like your above them let alone swear on the word of God for money or anything else in life EVEN if its for a Reality Show. It really is a shame that Dan feels that money is so important that he would forsake the church and the word of God for money and a reality show even if he is "THE COACH" In the end it does show us alot about Dan's character.
DonnaY September 16, 2012 at 05:47 PM
I couldn't believe that Dan is a teacher at St. Mary's. His whole behavior in the BB house has been a mockery of his faith or of any faith. It shows that those that do anything in this world for money may reap the rewards now, but in the long run he will not be a success. Listening to him asking questions of the other 2 BB members has made me really thing about his character. Who can come up with some of those questions. He is just a big FAKE. It sounds like he was bullied as a kid and now has a podium to stand on and cast all kinds of remarks and not held accountable. If St. Marys takes this guy back, I hope they lose membership fast. Dan is not worthy, I don't care if it is just a game, his true colors have come out. His poor wife, does she know the kind of person that she has married. Maybe her eyes are now opened.
Missy Myers September 17, 2012 at 01:27 AM
It's unfortunate, DonnaY, but on Dan's fan FB page in which his wife runs, she is behind him and his actions 100%. @doglover, why would you post so mean-spirited and condemn others for expressing their opinions, then end with 'keep your bad comments to yourselves?'. Irony at its finest. I will stand by my above post. I have the live feeds, and my only issue with Dan is not the highly debated 'did he, or didn't he?', regarding the swearing on the Bible incident. Maryann's post expresses some of the other concerns I have... I am glad that I am not alone in how I feel.
Kat Hill September 17, 2012 at 05:49 AM
Yes Dear he did swear on the bible and the life of his wife. He then stupidly admitted it in a DR session on the program. This man would not be teaching my child. He is why Atheist hate Christians ... they tend to think all are like this shameful disgrace. I guess one could say this guy is doing the DEVILS WORK under the guise of being Godly? Fortunately he is a minority. He has the ability to justify his abhorrent behavior by any number of excuses. Bottom line he is simply "ethically bankrupt" ... what a pity. If I were HR at this school he would have his walking papers when he returned. As for his wife? If she condones his behavior? Sorry for her she is as bad as he is. Interesting what people are willing to sacrifice for $500,000 isn't it?
Kat Hill September 17, 2012 at 05:59 AM
We face a moral and ethical problems in this nation. DogLover is indicative of that. It is okay to screw everyone and anyone as long as you win ... pity! Dan himself actually DOES NOT SEE ANYTHING WRONG with his behavior. That shows you he will screw anyone in life when he sees fit. His wife probably should be aware that one day she will be in the Danielle seat ... but then she is fine with his behavior so ... OH WELL ... LOL
Brandy4113 September 17, 2012 at 05:20 PM
I agree with you, I am a "Dan Fan". Yes he has said and done some things that would completley not be ok in the REAL WORLD, this is not the REAL WORLD it is a game! The whole point in being away from your family, freinds, and job is to win. So go big or go home. Dan seems to be a good guy, although most of you don't agree with his behavior please remember its a game and you play to win. Dan has gone into the DR and done his best to try and explain his actions to America. #Danfan
Stramada September 17, 2012 at 05:46 PM
Kat Hill and those before her posted what most decent people are saying/thinking. At best, Dan is certainly not a good example of Christianity in any form. Not only did he mock the Bible by swearing on it, he showed how sanctimonious he is by ridiculing Mike Boogie for reading it. As though only Dan was fit to read it. How very sad. It will be interesting to see if he still has a job when BB14 concludes.
Kat Hill September 18, 2012 at 01:28 AM
Yes Brandy4113 I suppose it depends on ones perception of NICE GUY & ethical game play. It's kind of like Bill Clinton did not think oral sex with Monica was REALLY SEX. The world with a personal agenda ... lol I guess one could think its fine to take steroids to have an advantage over other players. Or cheat in a poker game. After all it is just "a game". The point I am trying to get across here is that Dan does not view any of this as bad behavior. You are correct he has tried to explain his action. Somehow I don't think he is getting positive creds for that so far. Unfortunately swearing on the bible and his wife’s life does not make a very good Christian. But then the MAN UPSTAIRS will handle it in the end. Somehow I don't think that will go well. ... LOL THERE WILL come a day when he gets dinged for all of that but he is not smart enough to connect the 2. OH WELL!
Kat Hill September 18, 2012 at 01:41 AM
Yes he did ridicule Mike. Simply a cover-up in hopes not to have his own BAD CHARACTER busted in the public eye. Are these players so stupid that they do not understand there are thousands out here making video of their every move 24/7? They somehow thing they are going to be anything but a flash in the pan on youtube? Apparently it escapes them this stuff remains on the internet FOREVER and chugs to the top of google as years go on. HR simply sits down and googles a name and reads away ... if there is something negative they just trash the application and that person never has a clue. Does this give you some idea how stupid this guy actually is?
Michelle Vera September 20, 2012 at 09:25 AM
What Dan did was embarrassing for me coz I'm catholic... The justice system uses the bible to swear. He must be an atheist . And for him to say that he will have to go to confession after the bb game just set me off. How many times have I heared that Catholics are hypocrite . And this catholic school teacher just proved that to the whole world. He needs to get fired . I hope nothing happens to his wife he swore on her life over and over. ... I understand swearing on the bible if your life is at stake, but a game? 500k that you are not even sure you can win. This is one of the most embarrassing, next to priest molesting kids that I have to go thru as a catholic.
Maxwell Williams September 20, 2012 at 02:40 PM
Wonder how St. Mary's feels about Dans statements after lying and swearing on the Bible and the lives of others, that as a coach he has to motivate his players and "do whatever I have to do to get the win", that doesn't sound like the moral fiber I'd hire to mentor young children, but maybe St. Mary's feels otherwise.
Cathy September 20, 2012 at 04:39 PM
If he did all the backstabbing for money, for his family, then why didn't he help his family with the 500k he won from his season!!?? I'm a huge BB fan and I could not stomach his behavior please St. Mary's do not let this man continue teaching or coaching children he is not fit to be a good leader or a mentor and worst of all with all the swearing on his wife, the bible and saying all he has to do is confess his sins and he will be forgiven!!!!! WRONG !!! St Mary's Dan just opened the flood gates for the children he teaches and coaches to lie, backstab and it's ok because they now can go to confession and all is forgiven after all that is what Dan their teacher told America last night about his actions.
Cathy September 20, 2012 at 04:47 PM
Doglover390 you did hear Dan admit he lied on the bible last night right!!
Concerned from MN September 21, 2012 at 02:21 PM
I'm curious to know what, if any, discussion has taken place in the St. Mary's or local community about Dan's conduct. Has his conduct hit the local airwaves or media outlets? Wonder if St Mary's has received letters/phone calls?
Missy Myers September 21, 2012 at 04:50 PM
Been wondering the same Concerned from MN. I doubt anything will happen. I'm still shocked at Dan's smugness and justifications for his behavior. I posted a polite 'disagree with his gameplay' on his fan site that his wife runs and not only was I verbally abused, but they deleted me, and made it such I could no longer comment. They did this to many others as well. Truly sad. People there are full of hate and even posts from former students are sticking up for him. Way to go, Dan. Remember, being a Christian and in a teaching role holds you to a higher level of accountability. There should be repercussions for his actions. All he has to say for himself is that he would teach his students to play Monopoly with the same level of ruthlessness, and that he had to go to confession now. That's it? St. Mary's lets it go at that? I watched an after-show interview and in a comment he said 'can I swear on here?'. The way he lied then laughed with such ease... Ugh. I'm sure St. Mary's will be 'misted' too. Would love to hear if he IS being investigated...
Kat Hill September 22, 2012 at 08:18 PM
WOW! Missy ... booted from his fan site. Apparently his sweet wife believes in his in-house tactics and uses them outside the house for the both of them. What does that say about them as a couple. Does phoney come to mind :)
Kat Hill September 22, 2012 at 09:17 PM
I would be interested in that information also. I can tell you one thing if my child were at that school as long as Dan was teaching there ... my child WOULD NOT BE a student. Nor would one penny of donations go their way. He is busy trying to cover his ass with excuses on why his behavior was JUST FINE. We are in the ethical/moral trouble we are today because the people give guys like this a pass. EDUCATORS? beyond foolish.
