Westboro Baptist Church Calls Police On 5 Year Old Girl Selling “Pink Lemonade for Peace”
A five-year-old girl named Jayden Sink took matters into her own little hands and set up a pink lemonade stand at the rainbow painted Equality House, across the street from the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka Kansas to raise funds for the organization Planting Peace .
Well the WBC didn’t look too kindly on that as they not only attempted to call police on the little five-year-old and then stood across the street screaming curses at her and her customers when the Police decided not to interfere with her business.
“Jayden, who is from Kansas City, decided to set up her stand at the Equality House after her parents explained to her the significance of its construct. After being told that the church across the street had a message of hate, she set a goal of raising money to go towards a message of love and peace.
So she painted a banner for the event reading, ‘Pink Lemonade for Peace: $1 Suggested Donation.’ She put the stand in the grass and waited. But the waiting didn’t take long. Supporters came in by the droves and $1 turned into hundreds of dollars.
During the day, Westboro sent representatives outside to try and find a way to stop the event. They apparently attempted to call the local police and stooped to yelling profanities when that didn’t work, like calling a group of soldiers who rode out on their motorcycles to support the event ‘bastards.'”
But fear not, Jayden managed to raised over $400 at her lemonade stand thanks to the free publicity courtesy of the WBC.
You go gurl!
