My Name is Michael Kibbee and I’m a NOM Supporter and I Think “ingesting fecal excretions does not constitute marriage”

Yikes. This guy has totally lost his zen. Meet Michael Kibbee from Denver, Colorado. You’d think a guy sporting a profile pic of Buddha would be calm and collected. This guy speaks for himself — and National Organization for Marriage because they haven’t removed him or his posts from their page.

This guy apparently teaches online.

In addition, Michael Kibbee runs his own Facebook page (Destroying Homophobia Exposed) that is a real head-scratcher. He has posted a profile picture with bullet holes and blood. “Homophobia Exposed” is very similar to NOManiacs, committed to calling out anti-gay posts. Michael Kibbee is one mad individual. Unfortunately, many others are entertaining him, including Mariah Brown who constantly instigates anti-gay posts and hate speech on NOM’s Facebook page.

My Name is Aaron Ringewold and I’m a NOM Supporter and I Think Gay People Are Just Like Pedophiles (Like Me).

Aaron_Ringewold

This is truly classic. We’ve highlighted some interesting National Organization for Marriage supporters in the past but Aaron Ringewold is quite interesting. Ringewold has posted some pretty homophobic comments on NOM’s public Facebook page comparing gay people to pedophiles, which is a pretty common post. So…who is this guy? We asked the question and Google provided the answer in 0.61 seconds.

Aaron M. Ringewold, a substitute teacher at the time, was arrested and sentenced in 2009 for child pornography. Here’s the news report.

My Name is John Keith UMSC and I’m a NOM Supporter and I Think If You Don’t Like NOM and Their Supporters “Go Suck Dick at the Gay Club…”

Oh boy. This guy has quite a potty mouth. Facebook Terms of Service violations with almost every post. Yet, National Organization for Marriage doesn’t ban him or remove his posts from their public Facebook page. John Keith is originally from South Carolina and lives in Austin, Texas. He is a former recruiter for the United States Marine Corps.

My Name is Lisa Graham and I’m a NOM Supporter and I Think the Bakers Should Have “made the cake and SPIT in it…”

National Organization for Marriage is trying to divert attention away from their catastrophic losses last week. Their not-so-new poster children are Melissa and Aaron Klein of Sweet Cakes by Melissa. The owners of an Oregon bakery that made national headlines last year after turning away a pair of lesbian brides-to-be are now facing a fine of up to $150,000, which could reportedly leave them bankrupt. (Huffington Post, 10/1/2014)

Meet Lisa Graham of Anchorage, Alaska. After seeing NOM’s post on its Facebook page, Lisa had quite the idea:

(Lisa Graham: Maybe they shoulda just made the cake & SPIT in it, added some poo, urine, etc!!!)

Kathlyn Cobb-Wells who identifies as being self-employed at Financial Distribution Services in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, suggests:

(Kathlyn Cobb-Wells: I say bake the cake 5 days early & present lol. Leave it out to go bad.)

Feel the love? Because poisoning a cake is so Christian. National Organization for Marriage and Brian Brown has been made well aware of the comments through Twitter. NOManiacs is unable to directly comment to these posts because NOM has banned us from posting anything that dissents or points out their bigoted statements.

Others have suggested that the lesbian couple go find another bakery, not pay the fines or sue them. Huh? Sweet Cakes by Melissa owners believe it was their religious freedom to deny service to the lesbian couple. However, that is not in accordance to the Oregon law.

In July, a series of photos appeared on Sweet Cakes by Melissa’s official Facebook page, which showed desserts prepared by the company for Restored Hope, a group which has advocated for reparative, or “ex-gay,” therapy. (Huffington Post, 10/1/2014)

More comments from resident NOM supporters calling for continued discrimination, comparing LGBT people to Islamists, pedophiles, sheep…

My Name is Mary Marcolin and I’m a NOM Supporter Obsessed with Anal Sex

Image

Really, NOM? You just posted recently about “trolls” on your Facebook page who turn out 9 times out of 10 being people who politely disagree with you. Yet, people like Mary Marcolin are not banned despite using hate language or graphic references to fuel her animus. 

Times are tough for NOM and Mary (she lives in Maryland where there is marriage equality). She reminded us of resident anus-expert Wayne C Cooper

Black Roses: Rose Parade Boycott by NOM Supporter Karen Grube Backfires.

karen_grube_1388194904200_1716507_ver1.0_640_480

Karen L. Grube of San Diego is no stranger to this blog (she tried removing NOManiacs a year or so ago). When she learned that the 2014 Tournament of Roses Parade was to feature a gay male couple marrying (because it’s legal in California) on top of a parade float (because that’s super awesome and straight couples have married there in years past), she immediately started a boycott. Grube got some initial local media attention for her Boycott the 2014 Rose Parade page. However, her rationale for the boycott was quite flawed. Choosing to not use the religious route, she claimed Prop 8 was still in effect. Prop 8 was halted in late June 2013 by the Supreme Court and marriages have been taking place since then. Call it intense denial, Grube was reminded even by news media that Prop 8 was no longer in effect.

Here is the 10News Story.

Image

People began to point out how ridiculous her claims were, so she resorted to another one.

Image

Grube by now, frustrated, turned to her Boycott the 2014 Rose Parade Facebook page. She asked people to go onto the Rose Parade Facebook page, news sites, including the LA Times, featuring the boycott story to flood it with comments supporting the boycott. Clearly, she wasn’t the only one that was frustrated.

Disgraced Pasadena pastor Wayne Cooper jumped in. As you may remember, Cooper was exposed over the years for posting disgusting, graphic hate speech claiming that “gay men eat feces.” Great company you keep there, Grube.

Some even suggested spamming and tampering with the Rose Parade Facebook page.

Image

Image

As Grube turned her attention to external websites and news stories, her boycott page was receiving new likes at a steady rate.

However, hate speech was also being posted on Grube’s Boycott page.

Image

Image

The marriage float, sponsored but the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, was to point out that research has shown that the sanctity of marriage was one way of preventing HIV and other sexually-transmitted diseases.

Image
Grube, who presses the buttons for the Boycott Page, gave this particular hateful comment a LIKE. When pointed out on Twitter, she even defended it.

Image

There was one post on the Boycott page that received a lot of attention.
Image

This was in reference to “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson who known as a duck hunter, loves his guns and 15-year-old women are ripe for marriage (no, we are not making this up). Tracy Potter suggested murdering the gay couple.

After exposing this comment and Grube’s inaction to remove it, she claimed that she also received threats. All of a sudden she was now the victim. Easy way out.

The 2014 Rose Parade was a huge success and the marriage took place. News outlets later reported it was one of the highest rated parade broadcasts. So much for the boycott. Actually, the “boycott” and news coverage of it created new fans who invited the parade into their homes. Some even attended in person specifically to see the marriage.

Grube had failed. Hard. JoeMyGod even pointed out that Grube had proven not only to be a homophobe with too much spare time on her hands but also a racist individual.
