'Angels' Block Protestors at Orlando Funeral

Jun 22, 2016
Tuesday, June 21, 2016
Christopher Andrew Leinonen was one of the victims of the Orlando massacre. As thousands gathered for his funeral last Saturday, a handful of protesters from Westboro Baptist Church arrived. The tiny church has made itself famous over the years by picketing the funerals of military personnel and anyone else with whom it disagrees.
But this time the protesters were met by a group of men and women dressed as angels. Their large wings formed a wall that shielded mourners from the picketers. The tactic worked: one attendee said, "We couldn't even hear WBC. All you could hear was peace and love."
As a theologian who is convinced that the Bible forbids same-sex activity, I am saddened by the success of LGBT advocates in promoting their unbiblical agenda in our culture. But as a Christian who is convinced that God loves us all, no matter our sexual orientation or lifestyle, I am also saddened by the response of some Christians to the Orlando tragedy. A pastor in Sacramento said in a sermon, "The tragedy is that more of them didn't die." A pastor in Arizona said of the massacre, "I'm not sad about it; I'm not going to cry about it."
God disagrees.
