Westboro Baptist Church and its patently false and offensive slogan have attained far more than a deserved helping of infamy; so let’s not talk about those haters. Instead, concentrate on Planting Peace, a nonprofit organization founded in 2004 with “the purpose of spreading peace in a hurting world.”
In the past few weeks, the message of peace has been spread to a residential neighborhood outside Topeka, Kansas.
Planting Peace bought a single-family residence in that Kansas neighborhood—directly across the street from the Westboro Baptist headquarters—and painted that home in the rainbow colors of LGBT pride.
The rainbow painted home—dubbed the Equality House—was an unexpected delight, but would come as no surprise to anyone familiar with Planting Peace.
