Superb

And it's smack bang in the heartland of the Church, Topeka, Kansas where they're based.

The rainbow-coloured act of love was the brainchild of the people behind the 'God' Facebook page which has over 1.7 million likes.

They wrote: "The Westboro Baptist Church is a hate group based in Topeka, Kansas. This group protests at the funerals of soldiers, murdered children, and more. They carry around with them hate-speech signs that say that God hates gay people.

"This evil lie has been put into the world by bigots like them for thousands of years. The time has come to right this wrong.

"God LOVES gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered people!"

The WSC are infamous for picketing the funerals of dead US soldiers and murdered children, blaming the deaths on homosexual acts angering God.

The people behind the sign took to Indiegogo to raise $50,000 (£31,100) which was to cover a year's advertising and the costs of the campaign as well as a contribution to charity.

Donations poured in and they easily surpassed the target and are now aiming for double the amount so they can put another billboard up in Provo, Utah.
