Members of the notorious, gay-hating Westboro Baptist Church were forced to stand by as two lesbians said, "I do," just 50 feet from their front doors in Topeka, Kan., on Saturday.
A gay rights activist and philanthropist has purchased the residence neighboring the Westboro Baptist Church headquarters in Topeka, Kansas, and he has painted it as a gay pride flag.
"It hit me right away," he told Gawker. "Huh. That would be interesting to own a house across from the Westboro Baptist Church and turn it into something.'
"I've been accused in the past of being all over the place, and they're probably right on some level," Mr. Jackson said. "Right now we are standing up to bigotry and promoting equality."
