DailyMail: A charity founder bought a house opposite the Westboro Baptist Church headquarters in Topeka, Kansas, so he could protest against the group and celebrate homosexuality by painting it in rainbow colors today. Aaron Jackson, 31, who founded Planting Peace which supports orphanages in the developing world, decided the paint-job would be the perfect counter protest to the organization who are known for their ‘God Hates Fags’ placards and anti-gay preaching. The two bedroom house, which cost $81,000, now sits proudly re-colored directly opposite the founding base of the non-affiliated group which describes itself as a ‘church’.
Actually I don’t know that this guy is gay or not, but if he is, he might be the coolest gay guy in history (besides Freddy Mercury that is). Power move here, a total eff you to one of the most dubious hate groups in the country.
Speaking of gay guys, we got into a conversation at work today about a musician fantasy draft. I said I’d draft Freddy Mercury as the number 1 overall pick. He’s probably the greatest frontman for a rock band ever. Someone else picked Kurt Cobain, which I like, but he’s sort of a one trick pony. Not exactly a lot of variety. The rest of the first round consisted of Hendrix, Jim Morrison, and someone else said Keith Moon. What the fuck is it with with awesome musicians and dying young? All of them dead way before their time.
