WASHINGTON, January 20, 2016 – What will cause angels to weep? Melanie Tipton, executive producer and director of the movie ‘When Angels Weep: Rings of Faith & Fire’ has the answer for America and the world. Tipton has embarked upon a faith- inspired journey in creating a movie that provides answers and hope in a documentary about the persecution of Christians worldwide and religious freedom under attack in America.
Tipton, an avowed Christian conservative who heads up the Soar on The Wings of Eagles media production company, stresses, “Religious freedom in America is blatantly under attack in our schools, churches, military and in the public realm. It’s time for Christians in America to take a stand and protect our freedom of religion.”
In Hollywood and in the faith and conservative communities, ‘When Angels Weep: Rings of Faith and Fire,” which is expected to make its debut in the fall of 2016, has begun to create a serious buzz. The movie trailer provides a powerful declaration for viewers who are unwilling to witness or permit the undoing of Christianity in America where they live, work, or pray.
Judi Lake, executive director of the American Christian Civil Rights Movement after watching the movie trailer gave it enthusiastic support, saying, “This movie promises to be one of the most Christian message movies of this generation. She added, “The movie not only creates heightened awareness but also promises real life solutions for those in America who are attacked, persecuted or prosecuted because of their belief in Jesus Christ.”
Is anyone surprised that Christians are under attack in America or being eradicated in the Middle East? The horrific handwriting is on the wall, and it is written around the world. In the Middle East, the culprits are ISIS and other extremist groups. In the United States, it is the Obama administration, liberal educational leaders and public officials. Regardless of the author, the message is making the angels in heaven weep.
Yet despite this sadness, “When Angels Weep: Rings of Faith & Fire” provides a message of clarity, hope and love. It is not a movie that focuses on Christian loss, but on the strength in working for and achieving Christian victory.
Tipton and her crew visit Christians across America’s heartland who are speaking out and standing up against Christian persecution in America and around the world.
The movie shares stories of hope of Christians who are encouraging their friends and family to stand firm in their beliefs. These Christians are showing their faith in numerous ways, whether it is taking a Bible to school, praying on a football field, standing against gang violence or not submitting to officials that demand that Christians provide abortion pills to employees against their faith. There is much, much more, and they encourage others to do the same. A positive change can be achieved if Christians stand together and fight.
Christian detractors have been saying that Christianity is outdated and passé. Even President Obama stated in 2008 that “America is no longer a Christian nation.” This flies in the face of previous presidents from George Washington to George W. Bush, but has not prevented Obama from doubling down on this assertion. According to Dave Barton, the highly regarded leader of the Christian organization Wallbuilders, Obama has repeated his pro-Islamic comments in Muslim countries like Turkey, despite facts that point to the contrary. You and millions of other Christians would have been shocked by his comments, especially since according to Wallbuilders, two-thirds of Americans currently consider America to be an overwhelmingly Christian nation.
This year, Tipton firmly believes that millions of Christians across the nation are ready to see a movie that tells their story and their victory as Christians. She has a clear calling, which is found in Isaiah 6:8: “Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying:
‘Whom shall I send,
And who will go for Us?’
Then I said, ‘Here am I! Send me.'”
This fall, as America elects a new president of the United States, Tipton believes that her movie ‘When Angels Weep – Rings of Faith & Fire’ will awaken the miracle of America’s Christian founders’ faith in the God’s guiding principles.
