Westboro Baptist Church Calls Police On 5 Year Old Girl Selling “Pink Lemonade for Peace”

Lemonaid 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 Smith WBC“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!

 

 

 

Most Awesome 9-Year Old Josef Miles Solo Counter-Protests The Westboro Baptist Church Klan

 

9-year old Josef Miles were driving around Topeka, Kansas, when they spotted the infamous Westboro Baptist Church Klan picketing no one inparticular and spewing thier usual hate.  (Outside of inbreeding and having bastard children what else do they have to do?)  

When Miles saw the WBC Klan he asked his mother to pull over.

Josef’s mother Patty wrote on her Facebook page:

Josef was determined to make his own statement so we went to the car and with pencil and his sketch pad, he made up his own little sign that reads ‘GOD HATES NO ONE,'” Those people are scary but he stood strong, was respectful and stood by his convictions. He will be a good man, I have no doubt.”

We have no doubt either.

Thank you Josef.
