Dude Paints The House in Rainbow Colors as Revenge on The Neighborhood Bullies
Aaron Jackson is the co-founder of Planting Peace, a charity which supports rainforest conservation and orphanages around the world. He decided to do something to help the thousands of kids who commit suicide because of bullying over LGBT issues.
That house just so happens to be located across the street from the Westboro Baptist Church headquarters in Kansas.
The Westboro Baptist Church is known for its hateful speech against people of all shapes, colors and religions. Members have even been seen picketing the funerals of U.S. soldiers. Actually, this group is one of the only universally disliked groups in this country.
He struggled to find any painters who would help him take on the job, until a military veteran and contractor stepped up to the plate.
Thousands have stopped by the so-called “Equality House” to take photos and enjoy it’s beauty. Jackson says he didn’t paint the house to offend anyone, but to show that hate can be trumped by love.
To this day, the Gay Pride colors can be seen from the Westboro Baptist Church windows.
