Bryan Fischer, the rabid far-right activist and evangelical American Family Association radio host, turned up the unintentional self-satire to 11 on Sunday by claiming the LGBTQ movement appropriated the rainbow flag from the Bible. "Worst example of cultural appropriation ever: LGBTs stole the rainbow from God," Fischer tweeted. "It's his. He invented it. Gen. 9:11-17. Give it back." The Bible verse in question is from Genesis 9, where God — having destroyed Earth in a massive flood — shone a rainbow down on the Noah's Ark survivors as a symbol of his promise to not destroy the Earth again. Thrilling stuff.
