Christian neighbor threatens homeowner over ‘relentlessly gay’ yard lamps

You might be wondering what would make a yard “relentlessly gay.” Apparently it was a string of different-colored solar lamps – which one could argue reflect the colors of the rainbow.

This week, a woman came home to find the following note taped to her door:

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.

Won’t anyone think of the children?

The relentlessly gay homeowner, who is a widow and the mother of four children, set up a GoFundMe page to ensure that the yard becomes eternally gay:

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!

So far, the page has surpassed its $5,000 goal in under 24 hours.

    I am a Christian and if I had a neighbor who did this, I would just love it. How very creative. It is not for me to judge how God chose to create a person, it is up to me to love my neighbor as Jesus tells me to. He didn’t list any exceptions to the commandment. And sometimes, a rainbow is just a rainbow Is this widow gay? Did “Concerned Home Owner” verify this to be a fact or was it assumed?

    I agree. But the letter should be sent to God protesting the colors of the rainbow.

    What kind of ordinance could the police use to stop the woman from hanging lights? It would have to be some kind of nuisance law, that would be most likely illegal to enforce. It would a stretch to say they were a nuisance, except in the mind of the bigot.

    I think they are pretty and the children would like it. Nothing disgraceful about color. If that were true then why did God make all the beautiful flowers?

    To a filthy-rich lackey, fake-religious (i.e. fake-Christian, fake-Muslim, fake-religious-Jew, fake-Hindu, etc.) Nazi, everything a person who is in one of their designated scapegoat groups does is an attack on their religion and deserves death.

    The complainant should take her gripe to god. He plasters a rainbow up in the sky after every rain, advertising all those gay colours. They should go to church and send up a prayer of protest.

    If your Christian then should you accept all kinds of people without judgement…they are rainbow colored Mason Jars for goodness sake..Remember God made us all in his own image…think about that before you judge someone…. here is another thought to chew on….. always remember your son or daughter sister or brother niece or nephew could be going thru…. think about how you might feel if you were the person being judged by something you couldn’t change about yourself…it’s not a choice . And if it were do you think people would chose the ridicule and judgement from close minded people…Just think… would you be strong enough live your life truly the way you want to….

    Why is it that so many “Christians” promote such hatred when they profess the “Love” that God has for all humans. This is why I do not believe in structured religion. Too many exclusions, too much bigotry. I left this form of hypocrisy in favor of a loving being that loves all of his/her creations.

    maybe they meant like gay, as in cheery? Maybe the neighbors detest cheer? In which case I could see how bright colors might offend them. (dripping sarcasm)

    Because:

    1. She included her own address in the note. If you were to write an anonymous note, you wouldn’t include the address as you are putting it directly on their door.

    2. She has a habit of Capitalizing Words Which Don’t Need To Be Capitalized, as reflected in both the note and her gofundme page.

    3. She claims they complain about rainbows, love, and family (ohana) based on their Christian belief. However, this are all major themes in the bible.

    4. She claims she been the target of other notes in the past several years (in another story). Ringing a bell, a Rachel Dolezal bell.

    5. She is now a victim, a single mom, and internet famous. Is there a higher purpose these days?

    6. $

    But people will believe anything that’s in a photo online, especially if it stokes their confirmation bias. She may well have received a negative comment on her garden decor, but no way is the note real, and the Christian comments are likely manufactured as well.

  33. Mary

    June 18, 2015 at 4:49 pm

    Okay . The individual who posted that hateful note is obviously a moron. Since when is a rainbow considered offensive? Isn’t there a bible story about the rainbow being a promise that the Christian God would not again use floods as a means to destroy the world ?!? Maybe that was only in a few Sunday Schools….

    I am an atheist. I am aware of Leviticus 18:21-22, Leviticus 20:13, and Romans 1:27. From these, I have little doubt as to what is required to be a good Christian.

  37. fenriss

    June 18, 2015 at 7:47 pm

    Because the ugliness of this world has made you painfully cynical? I’m sincerely sorry for that. I know the homeowner personally, and I talked to her before all of this broke big. It really happened, and frankly, what if it didn’t? It’s a story about love winning out over hate. I beg you to take some deep breaths and reconsider your suspicious nature. It might be good for you.

  38. ejonconrad

    June 18, 2015 at 8:02 pm

    I smell a scam here. She supposedly gets this letter, and the *first thing* she does is to set up a crowd funding account to “buy rainbow stuff”? Internet shaming, sure, but immediately asking for money? My BS detector is going off like a fire alarm.

    I checked, and the GoFundMe account is up to $23,527 in *one day*! I predict she’ll spend a couple hundred on a load of rainbow flags, and then go on an extended vacation.

    June 18, 2015 at 11:01 pm

    I’m Christian and I find this quite funny. I’d fill my yard with those lights and even put of a sign that says “RELENTLESSLY GAY! I’m light-hearted; cheery; and happy”, just to piss the complainant off

    this is stupid and I don’t believe one word of it, people are on a “hater” bandwagon and are doing things like this to promote more problems, don’t you realize people that the whole idea behind some of the problems we are dealing with right now is people trying to divide and conquer our country, there are so many people trying to ruin this country and if we don’t realize try to stop this kind of stuff our country will fall. Do you not know what indivisible means???? stop the agitation and stop posting more negativity, we all hate the news media why be a part of promoting this kind of hate, whether its hate for the person who “supposedly” wrote this very fake looking letter or the person who hated the person who “supposedly” sent it out…its ALL HATE on both sides!!! NO ONE IS JUSTIFIED TO HATE!!!

    That “neighbor” gives actual Christians a bad name. He should use “bigot” rather than Christian. WWJD? Love the neighbor. Christian…I following Christ. Get it right, you bigot.

  48. ejonconrad

    June 19, 2015 at 8:08 pm

    Someone pointed something out on another thread…

    If you look at the letter, there’s some really strange capitalization. The “neighbor” capitalizes the words “Others”, “Children”, “Forced”, “You” and a couple of others in the middle of sentences, for no particular reason.

    *Now* go and read the GoFundMe page. This woman capitalizes “Home”, “More”, and “Hatred”, also for no particular reason.

    That’s a very distinctive writing style. There’s little doubt that these two things were written by the same person.

    Pretending to be a victim of Evil Christian Haters in order to get people to throw money at you is not really a “story about love winning out over hate”.
    It is a story about pretending to be a victim of hate. It actually devalues the stories of Real victims of Real hatred.

    And it’s pretty sad. Pathetic really. Just as bad as if I claimed that an Evil Muslim blinded me with acid and I need mucho dinero so can go learn to read braille.

    1. Skittles are rainbow colored.
    2. Are created by Unicorn farts.
    3. Well, number 2 is considered a cryptid legend,
    4. However, number 1 is factual.

Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

    Alan, I absolutely agree with you on these issues. However, an answer needs to be crafted to the clever question “Well, the wealthy get to set up permanent family foundations – shouldn’t these donor-advised funds be thought of as family foundations for the average Joe?” I think part of the answer should be requiring more aggressive spending down of foundation money, but the topic needs to be fleshed out. Thanks for your bringing this issue to the fore!
