Homophobic radio host accuses gay people of stealing the rainbow from God

Christian radio host Bryan Fischer, on Sunday, tweeted that “LGBTs stole the rainbow from god,” adding that it was the “worst example of cultural appropriation ever”. He then quoted a Bible verse in which God – after wiping out almost all humans in a global flood – shines a rainbow down as a promise not to end the world again.

“Give it back,” he ends, plaintively and pointlessly.tweet1

Fischer, who regularly calls respected media outlets “Talking Snake Media,” is known for making deeply homophobic comments. In the opening two days of April, he tweeted that “when the Supreme Court said sodomy is normal and not deviant behaviour, it opened the door to bestiality.” He then followed that up with another tweet, saying: “Not only is homosexuality a sin, approving of it is too.”

In the past, Fischer has said gay people are “literally” Nazi stormtroopers, compared homosexuality to necrophilia, and blamed gay people for the Holocaust and floods in Texas.

But it was his tweet about rainbows, which broke the mould of generic homophobic comments and attracted the wrath – and scorn – of the Twitterverse. Perhaps it was because the creator of the rainbow flag, Gilbert Baker, died just a few days ago, that people tore him apart.

Some pointed out the scientific dubiousness of his comment.tweet2tweet3tweet4

Others thought that he might be forgetting his history.tweet5

And some just made fun of him.tweet6tweet7
