    heh... Y'all don't get out much.

    You seriously haven't noticed purple doors on houses? And it can go against the whole color scheme of the house.

    The house we are buying has a purple door.

    Does it mean a gay person lives there?

    I don't get out much. What does it mean?

    Where I come from it usually means it's the home of a Pakistani family. ( purple, pink, they seemed to like bright doors.)

    I don't know, I just see it way too often to think that many people LIKE purple doors.

    Maybe it's an illuminati/new world order/mason's type thing... (get out your tin foil).

    Then again, maybe it's just so people ask... "What's with purple doors."

    You have crosses in the house right? In the bible Christ's robe was purple when he was being mocked. So maybe they used this color to represent this? Maybe the door and crosses have something to do with each other.

    Hey, Bob, I googled it.

    I thought it might mean the home's occupants were gay because they use that color and rainbows as symbols, but that's not it.

    If you are seeing these, particularly in PA, it's because of The Purple Door Christian music festival! Look here:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Purple_Door

    I don't know why they use purple doors, but that may be why you're seeing them.

    My parents bought a house in Pinconning, MI around 1979 and it had a huge purple garage door and the front door was purple too. The rest of the house was white with black shutters. We must have gotten asked a zillion times why those doors were purple. Everyone found our house by saying you know the one with the big purple garage door. It got old real quick. My dad didn't paint it black until 2001. I think people just like the color purple....

    OK....so far we've narrowed it down to a gay Pakistani Kansas State fan who likes to buy cheap, ugly paint......:shrug:

    Yeah, I've searched and seen that... but if you look at it, they derive their name from a bible study that took place at a house that had...

    A PURPLE DOOR!

    There's something there, I am telling you.


    I guess I will find out, if I get strange knocks in the middle of the night asking for secret handshakes and cryptic passwords.

    we once painted a door a barn red color, 2 years later after the sun beating down on it the color changed to purple.

    I don't know about your area, Bob, but in the Greater Metropolitan Toronto area, there is a "Purple Door Campaign". Purple doors are a symbol of speaking out against child abuse.

    Maybe they got door #2 which was Purple, but they don't have what is behind door #3 which is red, and they don't have what is behind door #1 which is yellow.

    COME ON DOWN ... and see what is behind door #4 which is green.
