Rainbow flag painted on house across from Westboro Baptist Church

A nonprofit has bought a house across from the anti-gay church and turned it into a gay-rights center, complete with a rainbow flag.

The Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kan., might have finally met its match.

The church, which is known for its extreme ideologies and anti-gay views, now has a neighbor swathed in the rainbow colors of the gay pride flag.

Nonprofit Planting Peace bought a house across from the church – notorious for its “God Hates Fags” and “God Hates America” slogans – and decided to turn it into a gay rights center.

The house – which has been named “Equality House” – even has a pride flag flying from a 30-foot pole….

The motherfucking Westboro Baptists have announced their plans to picket the Sandy Hook funerals.


America, I don’t fucking care what your politics are or what you believe. You get yourselves the fuck to Conneticut, and your form a human fucking chain ten feet deep around the entire fucking township if you have to, but so help me you keep those broken, ugly fuckshits from so much as setting FOOT within breathing distance of ANYONE dealing with this tragedy. YOU KEEP THEM THE FUCK AWAY.

Opinion about the Westboro Baptist group ahead. Sorry for ranting a bit, needed to get this out.

BRB, turning into a giant squid of anger (phrase coined by John Green)

So I’m watching a video where Russel Brand is interviewing some of the Westboro Baptist Assholes, and I’m having to pause it every 20-30 seconds.

I’m shaking with rage and anger right now.

I fucking cannot deal with these sick, close minded assholes.

To think that people like them walk the earth….

it sickens me.

I am NOT a Christian, by any means, and I don’t claim to be. I respect those who hold religion dear to them, and I admire that people can have that kind of faith. But the fact that these people run around and claim to be Christian angers me beyond belief. Even as an agnostic atheist, I have read the Bible twice. Granted, I was much younger than I am now, and I read through it at a Bible camp thing I went to for years, but I’ve still read it. And I know for a FACT that scum like them should not walk the earth. I believe everyone should have their own opinion, and have a right to what they believe, but fucking seriously? I’m being hypocritical right now, but these people are fucking terrible. Telling people, telling parents who have lost children, telling ACTUAL CHILDREN, that they are going to burn in Hell? Sick bastards. Who are you to tell them they’re wrong? Who are you to tell them that they can’t love whoever they want? Have you beliefs, fine. But don’t shove them on others. People have rights. Basic, human rights. Church and state are separate for a reason. 

Who are you to tell me that I can’t marry a girl? No matter who I fall in love with, I want to be able to marry them. And it’s people like you who are the reason I am terrified to tell anyone that I’m pansexual. I live in LITERALLY the second most Conservative city in the nation, and I have seen one too many people jumping on others and shoving religion down their throats. I have NO problem with religion as long as it’s not shoved down my throat. 

Don’t use these people to judge everyone who is Christian. Several of my best friends are Christian. And I love them to death. I’m the Maid of Honor at a very traditional Christian wedding in January for my best friend in the world. It’s like fandoms. Don’t judge a fandom by ONE bad/inappropriate/rude/psycho/whatever fan. Don’t judge all Christians based on this one fucked up advocacy group. There are many many many lovely Christians, just like there are some asshole atheists/agnostics. Every group has a bad side. Don’t let these people ruin your views or make you close minded towards everyone else. I have zero problem with religion, like I said before. I still love my friends, and I’m happy that they have something they take comfort in. We just happen to have differing viewpoints. And that’s okay. That’s 100% okay. 

Sorry for this rant, but I needed to get this out.

You reblogged something about having no time for homophobes no matter how you were raised, but sometimes these kids literally know no better. I know of a girl whose father is so anti-gay that she has basically been conditioned to see it as wrong. Your parents are you biggest influences as a child and therefore do young people end up believing certain things are wrong/ right. For example the westboro baptist church kids have been brainwashed by their parents, its not right, but not their fault.

I totally understand that, however there is enough talk and discussion on every social media website regarding this topic and if grown adults can’t learn and actually be critical of their views and that of those around them then why should we be understanding of it? Everyone has the capacity and the resources to do their own research and make their own decisions on a topic regardless of what they are taught.
It’s just ignorance and close mindedness and I don’t fuck with that
