Orlando Is Standing Up To Hateful Westboro Baptist “Church” In A Big Way!

A group of staff and volunteers from Orlando Shakespeare Theater as well as the Orlando arts community work together to build "Angel Wings" to block Westboro Baptist Church members protesting the funerals of the Orlando shooting victims. When finished, they will look like this. Pictured: Mourners dressed as angels stand across the street from St. Elizabeth Ann Seton church where the funeral service for US District Court Judge John Roll is being held on January 14, 2011 in Tucson, Arizona. 

Check out this story of heroes standing up to the hateful and disturbing protests from the “Christian” Westboro Baptist “Church.”

Angels really do exist — at least in Orlando. When the reviled hate group Westboro Baptist Church announced that it would be picketing the funerals of the victims of the Orlando gay bar shooting tragedy, a group of actors decided to fight back in a decidedly heavenly way.
Per American Theatre, the Orlando Shakespeare Theater and the Angel Action Wings Project have teamed up to clothe local actors in massive white linen angel wings in the hopes of blocking the 40-member “church” group and their hate-filled signs, the most startlingly recognizable of which is “God Hates Fags.” Thanks to donations, the Orlando Shakespeare Theater is building each of the angel ensembles in their costume shop.
