A non-profit 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.
Non-profit 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, according to Gawker.com.
The house which has been named "Equality House" even has a pride flag flying from a 30-foot pole.

Both groups have mental disorders.
Oh this will be fun to watch!
Are there zoning laws - regarding the painting of a house, and also using a private residence as a business?
Actually, rather funny.
I’m not even sure the Phelpses hate gays, but enjoy the $ from the lawsuits they generate.
I still suspect that Westboro Baptist Church is just a phony organization covertly set-up by gay rights activists. This latest event just plays into their attention-grabbing scheme.
Someone commented that this is a blessing in disguise for WBC, they can protest right across the street and not have all those nasty travel expenses.
They deserve each other. Can you imagine the adjacent homeowners? Their property values just got flushed.
The church has been actively involved in actions against gay people since at least 1991, when it sought a crackdown on homosexual activity at Gage Park six blocks northwest of the church. In addition to conducting anti-gay protests at military funerals, the organization pickets other celebrity funerals and public events that are likely to get it media attention. Protests have also been held against Jews and some protests included stomping on the American flag.
You may be correct. That didn’t even occur to me.
Yes, they do deserve each other. But the adjacent homeowners did nothing to deserve what is going on around them. Imagine living near either one of these freak shows.
Guess that's why we have HOAs.
Depends on the area...
House olors probably not, unless there were CC&R styles restrictions.
Business would be a maybe.
Poems are at least easy on the ears this is an eye sore.
As for “Gay rights” I don’t see how people suffering from the disease of homosexuality are entitled to any more rights than the rest of us.
yes, but all along their real objective seems to have been collecting judgments to support the clan and its activities. In this instance, I find myself on the side of the gays.
HOAs suck. A friend lives in one that doesn’t allow any on street parking. That’s a bit on the fascist side for me.
It’s like the few times when I side with the ACLU. ;)
