This is the one hundred and fifty-second installment in The Sounds of Fundamentalism series. This is a series that I would like readers to help me with. If you know of a video clip that shows the crazy, cantankerous, or contradictory side of Evangelical Christianity, please send me an email with the name or link to the video. Please do not leave suggestions in the comment section. Let’s have some fun!
Today’s Sound of Fundamentalism is a video clip of Bryan Fischer expressing his outrage over LGBTQ people stealing God’s rainbow. Fischer demands its immediate return.
The rainbow is God’s. God invented the rainbow—look at Genesis 9:11-17—He invented it, it’s His thing, He put it in the sky as a promise that he would never again destroy the earth through a flood. Are you listening Al Gore? Al Gore, you do not need to worry about the planet being destroyed by floodwaters. Why? Because God has put His rainbow in the sky to let you and everybody else know, ‘I’m never going to do that again.
The LGBTQ community is using something that doesn’t belong to you. That’s cultural appropriation … You’ve culturally appropriated something that doesn’t belong to you, it belongs to God, it’s His idea and you need to give it back.
Fischer always struck me as one who doth protest too much when it comes to gays.
You can come out of the closet now, Bryan. It’s 2017.
Bryan Fischer says he got to thinking about….
I did not really see any evidence of thinking in his jabber, only feeling pressured by guidelines regarding appropriation. Rather than caution about what might appear as extreme demands made by groups or individuals, he fights and tries to mock guidelines.
Well, Bryan, Christianity has appropriated so much and so often over the years that it could be called A Lesson in Extreme Appropriation. Just make me chuckle! Jesus was a white man who looked alot like Trump, a bit trimmer perhaps and not such glaring hair.
Shite! Appropriation? Just start googling it with regard to Christianity and there seems no end to it… sheesh….
By the way, you prick! I am older than you and your parents appropriated MY name for you. Give it back.
There is a perfectly natural explanation for the rainbow and it does not involve god. Plus Mr Fischer, Scott Lively tried this a couple years ago in song form and it failed miserably. If god wants the rainbow back he can come take it himself. Now as for your other claim I do not think the scientific evidence agrees with you. But if you really believe that, I would suggest you move to some small tiny tropical island in the Maldives and we will see about that. By way Bryan, you should join us we have room for everyone under the rainbow flag ?
And Scott Lively’s attempt in song form
It is even worse than I remember. Lastly he forgot orange in the second part, but nothing rhymes with orange except Trump.
“…nothing rhymes with orange except Trump.” I almost had my coffee spewing out my nose! Agreed, that song was awful, but it gave me a good laugh! I had the hardest time trying to figure out what were the verses, the chorus, or any other recognizable parts of a normal song. And in spite of such a pretty tune and singer’s voice, the message was so dark and threatening, it was almost confusing. “The next time is….FIRE!!!!!” Thanks for sharing.
That is a very humorish statement….
