A 5-year-old girl who set up a lemonade stand across the street from the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka on Friday raised more than $10,000 in the name of peace.

Jayden Sink, with ma little help from her father, Jon, sold “Pink Lemonade for Peace” from her stand outside the Equality House, a rainbow-painted building across the street from the controversial church’s headquarters on Friday.

Jayden raised more than $170 in cash, over $10,000 through online donations. The money went to Planting Peace, a nonprofit that owns the Equality House.

Westboro supporters hurled insults at the little girl and her customers, including soldiers stationed at Fort Riley.

On Sunday, Westboro Baptist Church tweeted: “*WHO* let nasty f–s get hands on this poor child? #danger.” On Monday, they ridiculed Jayden in another Tweet:

The Sinks were undeterred.

My question: can Kraft Foods sue Westboro for copyright infringement?
