Christian threats over rainbow lamps
A Christian neighbor left a threatening note for a woman in Baltimore, attacking her 'relentlessly gay' front yard because it has a display of rainbow-colored lamps. Julie Baker, a widowed mother who lives on the outskirts of the city had the note jammed inside her door by the anonymous poster.
It was signed only 'A Concerned Home Owner' and claims that other people in the area are concerned by the colorful lamps, which spell the words 'love' and 'ohana', a Hawaiian word for 'family'.
The message read:
'Your yard is becoming Relenetlessly 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.
Images of the letter and the lamp display, which glows at night, were posted online by a friend of Baker, and were then shared thousands of times. Julie Baker has vowed to make her home 'even more relentlessly gay', covering her home in as many rainbows as possible.
