Video! House Across From Anti-Gay Westboro Baptist Church Painted Colors Of Rainbow

By Robert Paul Reyes

"The Westboro Baptist Church is about to get a big surprise in the form of a new neighbor who plans to give the notoriously anti-gay group a taste of its own medicine.

Aaron Jackson, 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, 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."

Huffington Post

The little house has been painted the colors of the rainbow and it is an aesthetic delight and a life-affirming statement against bigotry and intolerance.

The rainbow is a sign provided by the Old Testament deity to attest to the covenant between Him and Noah (and hence all of humanity) that He will never again wipe out humankind by way of a flood.

If you believe the Old Testament God will never again destroy the world by way of a flood, but there`s always the danger that we may destroy ourselves in a flood of bigotry, racism and homophobia.

The rainbow colored house is a testament that we must take a stand against discrimination and hate speech.

I`d rather fellowship with the kind souls in the little rainbow house than with the intolerant folks in the big church across the street.
