Adorable Little Girl Ruins The WBC’s Hatemongering For A Day By Selling Lemonade For Peace
Across the street from the Palace Of Bigotry (The ramshackle, iron-gated Westboro Baptist Church) stands a happy rainbow colored house known as The Equality House. The house was purchased by Aaron Jackson last year and painted the happy colors of the pride flag and stands in stark contrast to its neighbors. On Friday a little girl named Jayden Sink sold pink lemonade outside of the Equality House to members of the community with proceeds to benefit Planting Peace. Hundreds of people came out to support Jayden and her efforts, and she raised over one thousand dollars despite the fact members of the WBC stood outside and called her customers “bastards” and called the cops with attempts to get her charity lemonade stand taken down. From The Huffington Post:
During the day, Westboro sent representatives outside to try and find a way to stop the event. They apparently attempted to call the local police and stooped to yelling profanities when that didn’t work, like calling a group of soldiers who rode out on their motorcycles to suport the event “bastards.”
Westboro’s hate couldn’t stop Jayden. She not only raised $400 during the day on Friday, but she has also collected over $1000 with an online campaign set up through Crowd Rise. Some people donated as little as $10 and as much as $230. One person gave $26, dedicating it to every person killed six months ago in the Newtown, Conn., massacre.
I don’t know how this phone call went, but I like to imagine Shirley Phelps Roper losing her shit and hysterically screaming at the 911 operator how they would burn in hell if they didn’t send police to shut down this cute little girl’s lemonade stand. I’m sure the police of Topeka absolutely love the WBC.
Score one for the normal people of the world who don’t believe that “God hates fags” and score negative a million gazillion points against the WBC. No word on if they plan on setting up their own stand selling H8terade or kool-aide laced with poison and cat urine to further their own God Hates Everyone causes.
