A group of peace activists in Kansas are protesting with paint.

There's a message behind this rainbow and it's directed at the home's neighbors: the Westboro Baptist Church.

The church is known for protesting military and gay funerals with inflammatory signs.

That's why Planting Peace bought the home, planned the paint job, and launched an anti-bullying campaign.

"The importance is to speak out, if it's in support of someone who's different, it's about embracing diversity, and just if someone's being bullied or something, do something, don't just stand by and so this is our way of doing something," said Davis Hammet, Director of Operations. 

Planting Peace says they will put up their guest speakers in the rainbow colored house.
