US non-profit LGBTQI group Planting Peace have attempted to discredit anti-marriage equality arguments by placing a billboard in the same county as controversial clerk Kim Davis.

Davis, who has been divorced three times, was jailed earlier this month after she was filmed refusing to issue a marriage license to a same-sex couple because of her ‘religious beliefs’.

She was released from jail last week and in response Plating Peace created this billboard. The billboard cites an abandoned biblical practice in an attempt to discredit people who continue to use the bible as justification for homophobia.

“The anti-LGBTQ movement is comprised of a substantial number of zealots who unfailingly refer to their rigid interpretation of religious text to narrowly define “traditional” institutions and values,” Planting Peace explained in a blog post announcing the billboard.

“They pick and choose what they wish to convey as immoral and unacceptable, while seemingly sweeping lines of scripture just a few letters away completely under the rug.

“The intent of the billboard is to expose this narrow interpretation by Davis and others that they use to defend their discrimination against the LGBTQ community,” the statement continued.

“There are LGBTQ youth across the world who are taking their lives at an alarming rate because of these messages from society that make them feel broken or less than. We have to meet hate with love…intolerance with compassion.”
