rainbow-belongs-to-god.pngNotorious homophobe, hate group leader, and international anti-LGBT activist Scott Lively is running for Massachusetts governor and on trial for crimes against humanity for his role in stoking the fires of homophobia in Uganda.

But because he doesn't have enough time on his hands or hatred in his heart, he's also trying to reclaim the rainbow from the LGBT community. (Good luck with that, buddy!) Lively is hawking "The Rainbow Belongs to God," a pathetically awful song that urges listeners to "stand up for the Biblical Christian values." He writes:

It was written my friend Johny Noer, a Danish pastor living in the Negev Desert of Israel, and performed by the very talented singer/composer Signe Walsoe. Johny was an attendee and guest lecturer at my Bible seminar in England last fall and was inspired by my article/strategy "The Rainbow Belongs to God" which I created to encourage the Russians to reclaim the rainbow as a Christian symbol during the Winter Olympics.

This beautiful music video is a fruit of our ministry partnership and I encourage you to forward it to your pro-family friends around the world.

Noer, though, doesn't seem to be all interested in Lively's endorsement; he pulled the video from YouTube and reposted it on Vimeo with a disclaimer: "NO responsibility for the use of this song by a third party is accepted by the composer or the artist."

The song itself is schlocky and overproduced, and its lyrics are hilariously tragic. Here's a sampling:

The rainbow belongs to God
With colors of flaming fire!
The rainbow belongs to God!

Then who is the one,
Who is the one,
Who is the one that dares to touch
God's bowstring of iron wire?

The rainbow belongs to God
Dazzling bright before our eyes.
The rainbow belongs to God!

Then who is the one,
Who is the one,
Who is the one that dares to defy
God's covenant truth with LIES?...

The rainbow belongs to God
His sign of promise and woe
The rainbow belongs to God!

Then who is the one,
Who is the one,
Who is the one that dares to claim
That the book doesn't say it's so?

The answer, obviously, is the queers. Hilarious, right? Check out the video after the break, and keep in mind: this was not meant to be funny.

FIRE! Oh, next time is FIIIIIIIIIIIIRE!
