|The stupid note somebody left and the "relentlessly gay"|
decorations in front of the house.
An anonymous person in Baltimore is finding that out big time after that person left a note complaining about the "relentlessly gay" decorations in front of one house.
Here is the note, in full. Capital letters and bold letters are the work of the person who left the note on Julie Baker's Baltimore front door, says the Baltimore Sun:
"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. --A Concerned Home Owner."
The offending decorations were a string of rainbow colored solar lights. Words on the solar lights spell out "Love" and "Ohana," a Hawaiian expression of family unity.
I'll be Captain Obvious for a moment here and dissect the absurdity of the note the idiot left. "Relentlessly Gay?" It's not like Baker is holding a major gay pride parade every day.
A Christian area? Home decor now must be conducted by some sort of Christian designer? And who designated the neighborhood Christian? What if a Jewish person wanted to move in? Isn't there laws against preventing the Jewish or atheist person or whatever from moving in to the house next door?
There are children in the neighborhood. Who will see the rainbow lights and go "how pretty." I don't think a few colored lights will make kids turn gay, do you? Call the cops? Um, putting up a string of lights doesn't exactly qualify as a violent crime.
Anyway, Baker is fighting back the best way she knows how. Her property will now really, REALLY become "relentlessly gay."
The Baltimore Sun says Baker started a GoFundMe page with the following pitch:
"Needless to say.....I need more rainbows. Many, many more rainbows.....I ams starting this fundraiser so I can make my Home even more relentlessly gay."
At last check, Baker had collected something like $26,000. She should probably paint her whole house in rainbow colors.
I can just see the neighbor who left the stupid note fuming like crazy. She should just give up and make her house "relentlessly Christian." Whatever that is. And I'm afraid to find out.
