On Tuesday, March 19, the Westboro Baptist Church (WBC) received a surprise right across the street: a house painted the colors of the PRIDE flag. Aaron Jackson, a founder of the Planting Peace charity, bought this house half a year ago with plans to get his feet into the fight for LGBT equality. The “Equality House” will help anti-bullying campaigns that exist and also ones that are starting up.
Below is a Twitter conversation between Ben Patrick Johnson and Shirley Phelps-Roper, a spokesperson and member of WBC, about the Equality House. Johnson is a gay Christian and his ideals and beliefs, along with so many others, are against what the WBC stand for.
