Five-Year-Old Sticks it to Westboro Baptist Church With "Lemonade For Peace" Stand Outside

by at . Comments

A five-year-old girl decided to set up a lemonade stand dedicated to peace on Earth - right outside the Westboro Baptist Church compound in Kansas.

Anti-WBC Girl

Jayden Sink is the daughter of Jon Sink, founder of the philanthropic arts group FRESHCASSETTE. They set up shop at the The Equality House.

That rainbow-colored building was recently purchased across the street from Westboro's Topeka HQ by Aaron Jackson, co-founder of Planting Peace.

Together, they're spreading goodwill, equality and peace - at what many might consider the epicenter of anything but. So what inspired young Jayden?

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." Then she put the stand in the grass and waited.

The waiting didn't take long. Supporters came in by the droves and $1 turned into hundreds of dollars - even as Westboro tried to quash the event.

During the day, WBC attempted to call the local police and stooped to yelling profanities, like calling a group of soldiers who came to the event "bastards."

Westboro's hate couldn't stop Jayden. She not only raised $400 during the day on Friday, but she has also collected over $1,000 with an online campaign.

Some people donated as little as $10 and as much as $230. One person gave $26, dedicating it to those killed six months ago in the Newtown, Conn., massacre.

"As we all know, the Westboro Baptist Church puts a lot of hate into the world," Equality House owner Jackson told the Huffington Post via email Friday.

"Since we cannot stop them, the next best thing is to smother it with love. That is what Jayden accomplished today [with her] lemonade stand in front of the church!"

"Not only did she quench the thirst of a lot of loving supporters, the money she raised was donated to Planting Peace so she could help promote a more peaceful world."

“Jayden represents the natural humanity we are born with. We come into this world compassionate, caring beings and only become hateful if we are taught to be.”

To me, that 5-year-old girl seems very wise beyond her years...which is more than I can say for those insufferable Westboro Baptist Church jackasses!!!!! And that WBC calling those group of soldiers "bastards" proves to me that those WBC assholes are the REAL BASTARDS!!!!! Those soldiers (and many, many other soldiers) defend our country EVERY DAY...24/7 AND BEYOND!!!!! What have those WBC nothings done? Let me see...NOTHING!!!!! Nothing but spread and throw their hate, hatred and misery around. And Labgirl said it PERFECTLY...that WBC is filled with nothing but LUNATICS!!!!! Beyond pathetic. One final thing: ALL MILITARY SOLDIERS RULE!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't really believe this church is right for doing that and I'm baptist ,People Twist Jesus words around to make it convient for them instead of sending the right message , All through the bible Jesus teaches us Love , Compassion , How can you reach people if you don't have love ?People who call themselves Christian can really be Judgmental and hateful and not even realize , Its really sad. Don't get me wrong Preach what's in the bible but do it in a loving not in a hateful way .

Good for her, the WBC church is certainly NOT taught by the bible. They can pretend all they want. They are filled with hatred this church is purely the church of satan. Anyone who finds joy by picketing our military funerals and constanly calling everyone a fag that is not christianity... This church and the leaders are lunatics

remember when our lord spilt the people in two and you have helped my brothers. feed them, gave them water, shelter, clothes and welcomed them in his arms. and the others you have done nothing to help my brothers. be gone. thats you. he is not asking you to fight his battles. just remember his words. love and forgiveness regardless of who they are or what they done because if you cant have forgiveness in your heart how can god forgive your sins?
