Snap! A non-profit organization called Planting Peace just erected this billboard in Kim Davis’ hometown of Morehead, Kentucky. The message is pretty simple. If Davis is going to use Biblical rhetoric to justify her opposition to same-sex marriage, she might want to take a closer look at how else marriage has been redefined in relation to the book’s sacred teachings. Aaron Jackson, president of Planting Peace, told The Huffington Post;
“The intent of this billboard is to expose how the anti-LGBT movement is selective in what rules to follow and how they choose to define ‘traditional’ institutions or values.It’s important and relevant to call this out, because the actions of Kim Davis and the messages from the anti-LGBTQ movement are not simply about a political or religious debate. There are LGBT youth across the world who are taking their lives at an alarming rate because of these messages from society that make them feel broken or less than. We have to meet hate with love, intolerance with compassion. Our message to our LGBT youth is simple: You are loved, valued, supported, and beautiful. There is nothing wrong with you, and we will stand by you. You are not alone.”
Planting Peace is also the organization behind The Equality House, the rainbow building that sits in direct opposition to the Westboro Baptist Church compound. Hey Kim, it’s 2015 and I hate to break it to you but the Bible was written by man and things have changed in the last 200 years. What does it say about adultery, btw?
