On his radio program yesterday, Bryan Fischer ran through a list of supposed tales of anti-Christian persecution in which individuals and businesses have been disciplined or sanctioned for voicing anti-gay views or refusing to serve gay customers and cited them all as proof that “the Mark of the Beast today is the rainbow flag.”
Fischer was particularly upset that a t-shirt company in Kentucky had recently been found to have discriminated against the Gay and Lesbian Services Organization of Lexington by refusing to print up shirts for the group back in 2012.
Businesses like this are now “not allowed to engage in commerce because they would not take the Mark of the Beast on their hands or on their foreheads,” Fischer said. “They would not allow the Beast to dictate to them what they did with regard to the homosexual agenda, what they did or what they thought.”
Saying that the owners of this company are literally being turned into slaves by not being allowed to discriminate against gay customers, Fischer declared that they have now been forced to “take the Mark of the Beast on their hand, they’ve got to make the t-shirts that they gay lobby says you have got to make, and they have to take the Mark of the Beast on their foreheads, even the way they think has to be realigned with what is politically correct”:
