Cute Little Girl Totally Owns Westboro Baptist Church
Remember when Sarah Palin put her daughter Piper up to sitting at a lemonade stand on the lawn of the Governor’s Mansion, just to increase car traffic and piss off the neighbors?
Little Piper raised $40 for charity. And she was not pleased. She wanted to keep it all for herself, and her mother understood. This is a direct quote from the governor’s email account.
“Piper made $43 at her lemonade stand here yesterday, and is donating it to the March of Dimes charity walk on Saturday. She says the next time she’s not going to advertise it ‘For Charity.’ I don’t blame her.” (Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin, Simon & Schuster 2011)
So, she did it again and the next time, she kept the money for herself. Nyah, nyah.
This is kind of like that, only the most opposite of that possible.
A little girl in the Kansas City metro area saw the rainbow house across the street from Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka on the news, and thought it was the most beautiful place she’d ever seen. Her dad told her about Equality House and the organization Planting Peace. So, she decided she wanted to set up a lemonade stand to raise money for them, which will go to fund anti-bullying efforts, and promote peace.
So far, she’s raised more than $15,000.
And what did the “God Hates Fags” crew across the street have to say?
WB: It’s a great preaching opportunity, because every time you tell about the lemonade, you have to tell about the hatred… the eternal hatred, and wrath of God towards the impenitent sinner.”
Reporter: I don’t understand the connection between the lemonade stand and a preachable moment about sin.
WB: I don’t either. But, that’s the way it’s falling out.
Yes, he said that.
