Fred Nile, imperceptibly pernicious in his persistent persecution of GBLTI rights in Australia has set his eyes firmly on a new target.
Having failed to stop the Mardi Gras throughout his career, having failed to stop the advancement of gay rights throughout his career, having failed in so many ways, Fred has decided to have another stab at it and try to seize back the rainbow from crisco covered hands.
You see, as far as Fred is concerned, the rainbow belongs to god. It’s important, it’s a sign of how god promised to Noah not destroy the world again, and by golly he’s going to take it back for god.
Because god, omnipotent being that it is, just can’t wrest a crisco covered rainbow back from a few homosexuals. God tried to get it back and failed, so now it’s Fred’s turn.
Well, good luck to Fred. He’s been such a failure on gay rights throughout his entire political career that I’m sure at least some of us will be … ahem … rooting for him. After all, every one hit wonder has to eventually have a hit, right?
Can Fred sing a rainbow? Let’s watch and see.
