Flame wars

This Christian Facebook page banned rainbow emojis. They should have known what would happen next.

Administrators behind a fervidly religious Facebook page called “Warriors for Christ” apparently prefer learning things the hard way.

How else to explain why they were so adamant about keeping the page free of rainbow emojis?

In case any wafflers happened to miss the message, administrators went that extra mile and created a grisly meme:

They received a disturbing 3.8K likes, but also quite a few dislikes — most in the form of, you guessed it, rainbow-bearing comments:

Somehow, initiating the ban didn’t stop all these slap-happy, rainbow-wielding hooligans.

Meanwhile, legions are now sticking rainbows on every single one of their posts, many of which are obsessed with the Lion of Judah. 

Not to be irresponsible, but perhaps you’d like to stop over at the page and help make it more colorful.

    Speaking of rainbows, when is Queerty going to report on the new pride flag?

  • GrimReaper

    aww the page seems to be gone comes up with this now for me This page isn’t available

    The link you followed may be broken, or the page may have been removed.

    Wow, I only got to post 3 rainbows in the last couple of minutes & was already banned. So sad I couldn’t add in more.

  • Kiarrii

    I got 9 posts of rainbow unicorn Pusheen before I was blocked. ?

    Well, it can work both ways(discrimination, that is). I think of Charlotte Pride banning a gay conservative float. And then we gays are outraged that a Christian baker won’t bake a wedding cake for a gay ceremony? I wonder how many Muslim organizations welcome the rainbow flag (if they’re not busy condoning the pushing of gays off the top of buildings)?

  • biandproud4life

    I only got in one flag before I was blocked…
    This disappoints me…

    He meant gay Muslim men being thrown off buildings by a conservative political/religious group who’s twisted interpretation of religion is only very slightly different to the one owning the web site above.

    I was banned in a matter of seconds… it was fun.

    I was told about a redneckfamily that put up rainbow flags all around their yard and house. They didn’t know what it meant just they were pretty

    They must be sitting on the Ban button. I posted an emoji with this phrase, LMAO: He that is without sin among you, let him cast the first stone.

  • rado84

    The admin of that page is a liar. He said a rainbow emoji would get me banned immediately but it didn’t. It took me 2 days of posting rainbows and I still wasn’t banned. The so wanted ban came after I pointed the obvious contradiction between the first and the second commandment which clearly indicates god is an atheist. Which I told them – “your god is an atheist”. An hour later I received the badge of honor “Banned from Pussies For Christ” page. :D :D

  • Ewenanne

    Yeah, some delightful person was just waiting for me. One and done. Going in under my husband’s FB to drop off a few more rainbows. Never thought how hard it’d be spreading a little love on a hate page.

  • spacefledgling

    Well I reacted to and commented on 5 posts… let’s see how long it takes for a ban XD
