The Topeka KS folks who painted the Equality House across the street from the Westboro Baptist Church are at it again!

The Topeka KS folks who painted the Equality House across the street from the Westboro Baptist Church are at it again!

Planting Peace is headquartered in the Equality House, painted the colors of the GLBTQ Pride Flag, across the street from Westboro Baptist church in Topeka KS. Working from this location, Planting Peace, a global non-profit organization, engages in a number of projects including; humanitarian aid and environmental initiatives, such as a multi-national deworming campaign, Equality House GLBTQ rights advocacy, a network of orphanages and safe havens, and conservation effort in the rainforests of Peru.

This week, as another in-your-face project of their advocacy for GLBTQ rights, Planting Peace has traveled to Morehead KY to leave a message, in the form of a local billboard, for the Rowan County clerk, Kim Davis, regarding her excuse for not issuing marriage licenses because of the US Supreme Court’s ruling legalizing same gender marriage nation-wide.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
