So the choice is between:

Remember when God used to get really angry, and wipe out everything on the face of the earth except a single boat? Well He promises He won't do that anymore; see He got us a pretty rainbow to remind Himself so He won't accidentally forget and kill us all. It's all because He loves us, even though we don't deserve it, because He said it was our fault that He had to kill everyone.

And:

You know what? Even though we're all different we shouldn't have to lie to each other about ourselves to get along. How about we're honest with each other and we try to find the good in each other and get along. This rainbow will remind us that even though we're incredibly diverse and impossible to completely categorize, we have a shared humanity that we can respect in each other.


Huh. I know which one looks like the better message to me.

Exclusive: Ken Hutcherson wants homosexuals forced to find a different religious symbol

#1: Your mythology does not give you a copyright on natural phenomena
#2: It's not a religious symbol to those who aren't in your farking religion

This is amusing to me because the rainbow isn't god's promise that he won't wipe out everyone again. It was the promise that he won't wipe out everyone by flood again.

Rainbows used to mean something very different than they do today. It used to be understood as the sign God put in the sky to remind us that even when He's angry about sin, He'd never again destroy the earth with a global flood.

I always thought rainbows were signs in the sky that moisture was reacting to light shining through it.

Rainbows SHOULD be taken away from the gays and placed back were they belong: on KLOS 95.5FM radio bumper stickers.

Both of those are excellent points.

Genesis 9:8-17: God's not an abusive spouse. He just acts like it.

"I want to get a shirt with a rainbow on it, but I don't want to seem gay. I'll have a rainbow, and under it I'll put, 'Not Gay' ... 'But supportive.' How did one group of people get to claim refracted light? Greedy gays."

That was one of the stupidest things I have ever read in my entire life, kudos to Ken I guess.

Next you'll hear that the Nazis want the Pink Triangle back too.
 
2012-04-19 02:39:24 PM
The fact that they would even want it back is striking to me. Firstly, since it's a reminder that their god is an amoral, vindictive, genocidal douchebag who decided that all the imperfect life he created wasn't perfect enough for his taste. Secondly, since it reveals that they're gullible enough to believe the story of Noah and the flood in the Bible is a factual accounting of an event that actually took place.

To end this controversy the gays should cede the rainbow and instead just use the image of a well-muscled man wearing only some cloth draped around his groin -- he could be mounted on some kind of wooden apparatus.

Perhaps, even, that man's arms could be spread out and his hands restrained in some fashion to let everyone know he's "Open For Business"

That would have more of a homo erotic aspect to it.

According to wikipedia, it symbolizes "diversity of the LGBT community." But then again, it is Wikipedia.

The guy who puts a rainbow sticker on the back of his Prius is sending a slightly different message: He's got a co-pilot, and it isn't God. If you really want the conversation to get going, try putting one of those stickers on your minivan right next to the Jesus fish logo. Talk about mixed messages. Is that guy straight? Is he gay? Do you think he's a liberal Presbyterian?

Maybe he's a gay Christian. Maybe he's a troll. Maybe you should worry about other shiat.

For a man that lived almost a thousand years and the only man righteous enough to get a heads up from the big guy that there was a big-ass flood coming, you would think Noah would be more important to the Christian faith. The dude gets a week to build a boat that will hold two of every animal at the age of 600 and he gets it done. Then God comes up with this elaborate message to say, "Hey, I won't be doing that again any time soon" using rainbows and has Noah's family repopulate the entire Earth. Yet all he gets are a couple of chapters in a book that started with God creating the entire world.

Job, on the other hand, has his entire life ruined by God on a bet with the Devil, and they make it into an entire book in the Bible. They probably should have switched those stories around.

Jesus one-upped Noah, by being the son of God, and all that jazz. After that, Noah became old news as an also-ran.

It's not a gay symbol! It represents loving the Son of Man with all your heart, passion, and sweat, and kneeling before him to service him as he wishes. Stop making it gay!!!

I have to say, I have always been confused by the adoption of the rainbow flag as a symbol of gay rights and so on.


The biblical origin of the rainbow is that it signified a new covenant between mankind and G-d, and one of the clauses of that covenant was not to have homosexual relationship.

I mean, seriously. Why not a flag of Judy Garland's face or something?

Yeah, but that's just bad marketing. Sure you can be perfect if you're the son of God, but to be a good enough person that God wants to keep you around? That would really speak to the everyman.

It originated in the 1970s as a way to symbolize that the LGBT community was open to people of all races.

Because rainbows have been around since before the Bible, and a bunch of colors is an obvious metaphor for diversity.

The entire industry. Personally. People go on and on about how much weird chemical Keith Richards's body must have in it, but compared to "over the rainbow" there he's barely even seen a box of crayons.

No, the covenant between Noach and G-d certainly included that prohibition. Look up 'Noahide Laws'.

In The Epic of Gilgamesh, rainbows are also associated with mankind's survival after a great flood.

I'm pretty sure it was either the same flood, or the Bible borrowed the Gilgamesh story.
