Westboro Baptist Church Neighbor Paints House to Match the Gay Pride Flag
It’s been one hell of a year. We’ve seen it all—both good and bad. And for this week, we’re reminding you of some of the defining moments of 2013.
Things are about to get a whole lot more colorful on the street of the Westboro Baptist Church: the house across the street of from the Fred Phelps–owned compound is about to be painted rainbow colors. According to HuffPo the owner of the house is Aaron Jackson who is “one of the founders of Planting Peace, a multi-pronged charity that has in the past concentrated on rainforest conservation, opening orphanages, and deworming programs. [Jackson] bought a house that sits directly across from the church’s compound six months ago. On Tuesday, March 19, he and a team of volunteers are painting it to match the gay pride flag.”
The multi-colored property is being called the “Equality House” and is just one of the many campaigns that Planting Peace is planning.
