Everyday We Stray Further From God’s Light
First “Everyday We Stray Further From God’s Light” was used to react to anything that you found edgy or cringe, but since the term has evolved into a reaction that is used to express your disappointment in something, so much that you think the world is going in the wrong direction.
Origin of the meme
Since the wording mentions “God”, it is almost impossible to pinpoint the origin of the term as it might be from the biblical era.
However, the first use of it as a reaction to something on the internet can easily be found, it pointing to an image posted to a website called Imgur in 2015, where the caption can be found, mocking the “Minions” movie and its creation.
Spread of the meme
Since hating on something as a collective and bandwagoning is a trend on the internet, the use of the term has had a smooth road laid out ahead of it to success.
Not much later, the got its own subreddit made, called /r/minionhate, solely for the purpose of harpooning the character “Minion” from the movie called “Minions”.
Here the meme had its peak popularity and got its now know format, where an image is present of a bootleg “Perry the platypus” from the cartoon series called “Phineas and Ferb”, with the caption “Ever day we stray further from God’s light”
