The infamously anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church has a new neighbor who plans to counter act their efforts.

Arron Jackson a founder of Planting Peace, a multi-platform charity, bought a house which sits directly across from Westboro Baptist Church.

According to The Huffington Post, on Tuesday he had a team of volunteers paint it to match the gay pride flag.

The "Equality House" -- is the first in a new campaign Planting Peace plans to wage against the group. Westboro is known for its intimidating tactics of protesting (or threatening to protest) what they refer to as America's pro-gay, anti-God agenda.

Planting Peace purchased the house for about $83,000 about a month ago, but Jackson waited for the perfect time to transform the house into a celebration of gay pride.,
