Mississippi’s Anti-LGBT Bigots Were Just Surprised with This Perfect Billboard
A nonprofit humanitarian group has the perfect response to the new Mississippi law that legalizes discrimination against the LGBT community.
The organization Planting Peace, which earned viral fame after purchasing a house adjacent to the Westboro Baptist Church and painting it with rainbow colors, may have outdone themselves entirely with a new billboard in Jackson, Mississippi.
The billboard shows Jesus face-palming, along with the text, “Guys, I said I hate figs and to love thy neighbor,” making reference to a less well-known section of the Bible in which Jesus curses a fig tree, making it barren.
The billboard is located on High Street in downtown Jackson, just blocks away from the Mississippi State Capitol.
“The intent of this billboard is to bring awareness to how the anti-LGBT movement continues to try to move us backwards in the fight for equal rights,” Planting Peace Founder Aaron Jackson told The Huffington Post.
Mississippi is making headlines today after Governor Phil Bryant signed House Bill 1523 into law, which allows private businesses to deny service to LGBT customers, and to anyone who has had sex out of wedlock.

A dear blogger friend taught me this concept.

~IN HER OWN WORDS~
“IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”
THIS IS VERY SERIOUS FOR ME …. SHOULD BE FOR MANY MORE
