Westboro Baptist Church Responds to 5-Year-Old's Lemonade Threat


The Westboro Baptist Church has officially responded to the threat of a five-year-old girl's lemonade stand. Their message: "Fags and enablers all burn in hell. Lemonade won't cool any tongues."

O-WESTBORO-BAPTIST-CHURCH-LEMONADE-570You understand that, Jayden Sink? The WBC does not want anything to do with your fruity beverage. No way, no how. (That's her on the right—probably the cutest kid in the world.)

It appears, though, that others in the neighbourhood (and around the world) are quite supportive of Jayden's efforts. To date she has raised over $20,000 for the organization Planting Peace through lemonade sales and an online Crowdrise campaign. Planting Peace bills itself as an organization with a goal of simply spreading peace in whatever way possible. One peace-spreading idea of their's was to buy a house opposite the WBC compound and then paint it rainbow colors. It was this house where Jayden set up her controversial lemonade stand.

Towleroad previously linked to coverage of the lemonade debacle when WBC members purportedly called the cops swore at those who dared to buy the lemonade.

If anything can be said of WBC members, at least they're consistent in their awfulness.

In other Equality House news, two lesbians will be getting married on the lawn of the house opposite the WBC.

Kimberly Kidwell and Katie Short will be married this Saturday by a Unitarian minister, despite same-sex marriage being illegal in Kansas.

From the Topeka Capital-Journal:

Jackson said Planting Peace hopes publicity surrounding the ceremony will send a signal to the U.S. Supreme Court as it decides two key cases regarding the constitutionality of gay marriage.

“We would like marriage equality, and we don’t think people should be treated as second-class citizens,” Jackson said.

He said Planting Peace sent out a message on social media outlets asking if any same-sex couples would like to be married in front of Equality House, and it received about five responses.

Jackson said Planting Peace learned more about each couple before deciding that Kidwell and Short, who have been together five and a half years, “sounded like a good fit.”

  1. This is great!!! The WBC, by being so horribly hateful, is actually doing so much actual (though unintended) good. Keep it up, idiots!

  2. Same-sex marriage is not illegal in any state, it's simply unrecognized in most.

  6. I get the gesture, but no way would I want my marriage tainted by the WBC, or linked TO it, in ANY way. Gross...

  7. I guess I am trying to wrap around my brain how a 5 year old girl selling lemonade is a threat?!?!?? If they really feel threatened by this, they might want to go back to their bible and pray harder

  8. I'm getting to the point of thinking that people who attend WBC have nothing but rotten hearts and sick minds.

  9. Just a technicality, but same-sex marriage is not illegal in any state in the US. It simply is not recognized as being a valid marriage in states which do not recognize it.

    Of course, not recognizing it is, in my opinion, a crime against humanity.

  11. "Just a technicality, but same-sex marriage is not illegal in any state in the US. It simply is not recognized as being a valid marriage in states which do not recognize it."

    If same-sex marriage were illegal, the precedent of Loving v Virginia would be more clearly applicable.

  12. It's comedy, it's comedy, it has to be comedy. I wish Henry Rollins were in on it all, I wish she were his daughter, he'd kick so much ass Westboro Baptist Butt would be the new slang term for analhilation.

    Love me some Henry Rollins.

  13. This five-year-old kid is doing this by heart. She is simply showing, how much hate this hategroup WBC has and how afraid WBC is, when a kid acts and does things with support of her community. Love wins, people want to be happy.

  14. Wow, picking on a five-year-old girl. It must make Fred feel so manly. What a pathetic group of "humans". She defeated hate and they just can't take it...she acts more mature than those idiots in that "church". Way to go little girl...I hope you raise so much money, you could buy that church and kick those loons to the curb...for good!

  15. WBC love suing anyone who violates their rights. Interfering with her business operation seems like an actionable case to me. I think this is the chance to finally turn the tables on these scumbags. Also, I hope this adorably little girl can see the absurdity in people screaming at her customers. That's a lot to ask of someone so young, but I can hope anyway.

  16. If there is a hell, the WBC are going there by picking on a little five year old girl. What a bunch of sick people they are!

  17. Lemonsade sure won't cool the raging burn of your b*tthurt either, WBC.
