Human chain of love blocks ‘God Hates Fags’ protesters from Orlando funerals · PinkNews

A human chain of love was formed in Orlando to thwart the hate of the Westboro Baptist Church, protecting the funerals of massacre victims.

49 people were killed and 53 injured in the shocking terrorist hate crime attack over the weekend,which saw a gunman open fire inside The Pulse gay bar in Orlando, Florida.

With over 100 people dead or injured, it stands at the largest-scale shooting in US history.

Funerals are beginning to take place in Orlando, and members of anti-LGBT hate group the Westboro Baptist Church have travelled to Orlando with the intention of protesting as many funerals as possible with ‘God Hates Fags’ signs.

However, hundreds of local residents are trying to thwart the group – turning up ahead of Westboro and forming a human chain around the memorial locations, to ensure that the families and friends of those who died can mourn in peace.
