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

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 Call it intense denial, Grube was reminded even by news media that Prop 8 was no longer in effect.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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Rev. Wayne C Cooper on the subject of “Felching”

National Organization for Marriage supporter Wayne C Cooper is an interesting fellow. He is reverend at Lincoln Avenue Baptist Church in Pasadena, CA. He’s continually posted graphic, misleading and hateful matter on National Organization for Marriage’s facebook page. He likes to talk about poop. A lot. For example:
‘Gay Men Eat Feces’ According to NOM Supporter Rev Wayne C Cooper
Wayne C Cooper on “Gay Bowel Disease”

Now, it’s “felching.” Call me stupid, but I had to look up the term. I wonder if I can get a brochure on how “felching” destroys traditional marriage from Lincoln Avenue Baptist Church.

He goes from Tea Party to credit rating to….”felching”

More Outrageous Claims and Statements from NOManiacs

It’s been a slow week for the National Organization for Marriage. Illinois civil unions take effect this week. The grave for DOMA is getting deeper and deeper. So NOM concentrates on scaring parents that the “radical gay agenda” is coming to an elementary school near them. Or that Senator Ruben Diaz who led the hate parade in the Bronx last month where he said gay people are worthy of death is now apparently receiving death threats. NOManiacs criticized a Gallup poll last month that revealed Americans are more favorable of gay marriage than ever. Now they are latching onto a Gallup poll that says people believe gay people were born gay has flatlined. Again, very slow week for the haters.

The NOManiacs are hard at work spewing their hatred and misinformation:


And in the same breath…

And it wouldn’t be complete with commentary from Wayne C Cooper, a reverend from Lincoln Avenue Baptist Church in Pasadena, California, made famous by this blog about his tirades on anal sex and feces. And somehow he knows the best interest of children?

Rob Haldeman claims gay people will never be equal to him because they “can’t make biological children with the partner they love.” A very popular NOM argument.  Yet, there are millions of couples, gay and straight, who cannot have children for medical reasons and many who do not want to have children. Are they not equal either?

And NOManiacs love to create fake profiles in order to say things they don’t have to be responsible for. Yet their allegiance to National Organization for Marriage makes NOM responsible.

‘Gay Men Eat Feces’ According to NOM Supporter Rev Wayne C Cooper

This wouldn’t be the first time Wayne C Cooper has shared his insight on anal sex, “Gay Bowel Disease.” Now, he claims gay men regularly eat their partner’s feces. According to Rev Cooper, it’s a ‘well documented’ fact, yet he provided no documentation or CDC links. As you may know, Wayne C Cooper is a “religious leader” at Lincoln Avenue Baptist Church in Pasadena, CA. His congregation may know that he speaks out regularly about homosexuality, but they may not know his fascination with anuses and feces.
