House Across From Westboro Church Painted Rainbow

It’s not technically civil disobedience, but we’ll take it. An activist has bought the house across from the Westboro Baptist Church and painted it rainbow to protest the church’s message of intolerance. Aaron Jackson, 31, said he was inspired by Josef Miles’s protest, when the 9-year-old simply held up a sign that said “God Hates No One” in front of Westboro Church members. Jackson, who founded the charity Planting Peace, said that people have been “honking horns, taking pictures” all day. The church has responded with an offensive tweet referencing the house. Charming.
