When Julie Baker, a widow and mother of four from Baltimore, thought it would be a good idea to add some color to her yard by way of some solar lamps. The result was this work of beauty (pic above).
Not everyone agrees though, one of her neighbours in particular. And so, Julie Baker stepped out onto her front porch one day, and found an anonymous note taped to her door. The incredibly hilarious faith-based note read:
“Your yard is becoming Relentlessly Gay! Myself and others in the neighborhood ask that you Tone It Down. This is a Christian area and there are Children. Keep it up and I will be Forced to call the Police on you! Your kind need to have Respect for GOD.”
It was signed, “A Concerned Home Owner.”
Yes… we must protect the children from the evil, wicked lamps! They’re relentlessly committing sodomy… or something like that.
Rather than get angry, Baker doubled up her efforts to beautify her home. She launched a GoFundMe page to fight back. On her page, she writes:
‘Needless to say… I need more rainbows… Many, many more rainbows….
‘So, I am starting this fundraiser so I can work to make my Home even More “relentlessly gay” If we go high enough, I will see if I can get a Rainbow Roof!
‘Because my invisible relentlessly gay rainbow dragon should live up there in style!
‘Put simply, I am a widow and the mother of four children, my youngest in high school and I WILL NOT Relent to Hatred. Instead, I will battle it with whimsy and beauty and laughter and love, wrapped around my home, yard and family!!!
‘Thanks for your relentlessly gay support!
She set a fundraising goal of $5,000. So far, she’s raised more than $10,000 $15,000 $20,000 and counting. That’s gonna buy a shit-ton of rainbows.
