Dubbed the “Equality House,” it’s right across the street from the home of the cult-like homophobic Westboro Baptist Church, the group notorious for picketing the funerals of U.S. soldiers and for its signs proclaiming, “God hates fags.”

Aaron Jackson, 31, co-founder of the charity Planting Peace, which supports rainforest conservation, de-worming projects and orphanages around the world, wanted to do something to help the “thousands and thousands” of kids who commit suicide because of bullying over LGBT issues, he told me.

After hearing about 9-year-old Josef Miles staging a counter protest last year with a sign, “God hates no one,” Jackson looked up the location of the Westboro Baptist Church.

“I was ‘walking’ down the street [on Google Earth] and saw a for sale sign,” he told me. “Oh man, I want this house and how great would it be to paint it in the colors of the gay pride flag.” That house was no longer available, but a real estate agent located another property that was  across the street from Westboro; Planting Peace bought it for around $81,000 — sight unseen.
