Christian’s hateful note badly backfires
A homophobic Christian zealot who objected to the ‘gayness’ of a neighour’s yard has inadvertently set the wheels in motion to make the yard the gayest on the planet.
When Julie Baker, from Baltimore, received the above note from the “concerned home owner”, she immediately posted it on the Internet, where it went viral. She then set up a GoFundMe campaign, saying:
I am starting this fundraiser so I can work to make my home even More “relentlessly gay” If we go high enough, I will see if I can get a rainbow roof!
Put simply, I am a widow and the mother of four children, my youngest in high school and I WILL NOT Relent to Hatred. Instead, I will battle it with whimsy and beauty and laughter and love, wrapped around my home, yard and family!!!
Baker hoped to raise $5,000 – but in just one day has raked in more than $16,000!
What so upset the “concerned home owner” were rainbow solar lights Baker had recently hung in her yard. The lights spelled out the words “Love” and “Ohana,” which is a Hawaiian expression for family unity. The rainbow, and rainbow colors, are a symbol of gay pride.
