Trump Makes Out With Ted Cruz In Giant Billboard Erected Near Republican Convention
A new billboard has gone up in Cleveland, Ohio with a message to Republicans in the city to attend the 2016 RNC Convention: Love Trumps Hate.
Paid for by Planting Peace (the organization responsible for the amazing Equality House across the street from Westboro) is behind the ad.
In the eyes of Aaron Jackson, President of Planting Peace, this high-profile move is intended as a direct response to the Republican party and the messages of hate it sends to marginalized groups ― particularly the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.
“What Donald, Ted and the Republican party either fail to realize, or realize and just don’t seem to care about, is that their words and actions toward our LGBT family―especially LGBT children―have meaning and impact,” Jackson told The Huffington Post. “LGBT children hear these messages telling them they are nothing but second class citizens and are left feeling broken or ‘less than.’”
“When children are dying because of negative messages, then it’s time to change the message,” Jackson said. “Planting Peace calls for the immediate change in the Republican party platform with regard to our LGBT family and LGBT rights. Never again shall a negative, hateful message be uttered in the name of ‘religious freedom.’ We are calling for action that brings full, fundamental rights to the LGBT community, and a narrative that empowers LGBT people to live and love freely.”
