Westboro Church Gets a Big Gay Rainbow House

Rainbows make everyone smile…even Shirley Phelps of the Westboro Church.

Known for their “God hates fags” slogan, members of Westboro Baptist Church will soon have to face the gay pride flag — or its colors — every day.

Aaron Jackson, a humanitarian who helped found Planting Peace,
a charity that has in the past assisted orphanages, rainforests and
helped with deworming programs, bought a house located across from the
church six months ago for $83,000. Now he is painting it with Pride colors.

“The idea came right away when I saw the house for sale,” said
Jackson. “I was like, ‘I’m going to turn it into an Equality House, and
I’m going to paint it the color of the Pride flag.”

to counter the anti-gay agenda of Westboro Baptist Church across the
street.  Church members are known for protesting the funerals of
American soldiers. A huge banner outside the church reads “God hates

But Jackson has a different message — a message of love.

As for Westboro Baptist Church? One of the more outspoken members, Shirley Phelps-Roper, said she loves it.

“I love it,” she said. “What he does is he keeps the eyes of the
whole earth on this message. Now everyday all people are thinking about
is God will not have same sex marriage.”
