About

Everyday We Stray Further From God"s Light is a faux-biblical often used in combination with various images and videos that are deemed cringeworthy. The phrase initially entered widespread usage in association with the Minion Anti-Fandom that emerged in mid-2015, but it has since become a more versatile expression that conveys a sense of utter disappointment or astonishment, in a similar vein to other phrases like "Where Is Your God Now?" and "I Don"t Want to Live on This Planet Anymore".

Origin

It is unknown when the first instance of this meme was posted online, but it was likely coined in reference to the massive-scale marketing campaign for the 2015 American 3D animated family comedy film Minions that took place during the summer of 2015. The earliest known mention of the phrase can be found in an image post submitted by Imgur user Valdros on July 1st, 2015. In the post<1>, the phrase accompanies an image of a Minion discussing different breast sizes.

In December 2015, an image of a bootleg Perry the Platypus from Phineas and Ferb, paired with the catchphrase, was posted to Memecenter several times with the addition of an image about Undertale and Gender Swapping.
