TOPEKA, Kansas -- A group of peace activists have painted a house in rainbow colors across the street from Westboro Church, an organization known for protesting military and gay funerals with inflammatory signs. 

"Planting Peace" officials say they bought the house and planned the paint job as part of 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," says Director of Operations Davis Hammet. 
 
Planting Peace says it will lodge guest speakers in the rainbow-colored house.
