Quote# 90403

Yes, let’s take back the rainbow for God. Let the homosexual community find a different religious symbol to commandeer. If they were feeling congenial, perhaps the Muslims would let them borrow their crescent moon. In these desperate economic times, maybe the Wiccans would rent the pentagram to them. I don’t really care. What I want is for the Christian community to wake up, wipe the sleep from their eyes, and realize that they are in a spiritual battle that isn’t going away and has no demilitarized zones. The rainbow is a symbol, but it’s meaning points to the very character of God. So Christians …use this God-given symbol for His glory. Using it won’t make you a homosexual. It won’t make you a New Ager. It won’t make leprechauns real. But it might allow you to get into conversations with people who need to meet the very One Who gave us His promise in the first place.

You going to take the rainbow symbol and mythology from every other society and religion too? Because it appears in just about all of them.

Iris, Greek goddess of the rainbow, frowns upon your bullshit.

Not all that fundy, to be honest. When one group takes a symbol as their own, other people who liked that symbol would find it difficult to use that symbol without being associated with the group that has made it theirs. I like rainbow symbols but I am a straight guy, so I don't use them. I am not meaning to sound bigoted here, but symbols are a method of identification and they do get adopted by certain groups, which understandably causes upset to those who felt it belonged to them.

So your god is Odin, then.

Doubting Thomas

Since when was the rainbow a religious symbol? Yes, I know about the end of the flood story, but I've never seen the rainbow as purely religious.

But go ahead Christians, put rainbow stickers on the back of your cars, right next to your Jesus fish. Then drive around your red state and try not to get harassed or have your car vandalized by your fellow fine, upstanding Christians.

I claim this symbol of nature and hope for all of Ponyville!

Also, just so you know, Wiccans wear the pentacle (star points upward), not the pentagram (star points downward). There is a difference.

...and fuck you. Just because you're you.

"Let the homosexual community find a different religious symbol to commandeer."

- Considering how many peaceful gay people have been killed simply for who they were, the cross sounds like a good symbol for them to use. Whaddya think ken?

"It won’t make leprechauns real." He was so close and yet still so far from reality.

10/31/2012 6:19:48 AM

I thought the symbol of christ-inanity was the cross....ya' know that great ol' instrument of torture and death?

10/31/2012 6:26:01 AM


The rainbow is a symbol, but it’s meaning points to the very character of God.

Yes, it does: throw a fit and kill people, then say "oops, my bad" later. Definitely sounds like the character of the Christian God.

10/31/2012 6:44:15 AM


Simple desings - especially ones found in nature - are symbols for many different things! How can this be??? Other people using it can't possibly be doing this just because they thought it fit, remember the world revolves around us only, they must be doing it to spite us!!

And I am offended you bastard, some of my best friends are leprechauns!

Not gonna happen.

If I remember correctly, every culture has different myths about rainbows, origin story or whatnot.

10/31/2012 7:52:21 AM


Sunlight + rain + refraction = rainbow

Science! Suck it long, and suck it hard.

(emph-ass-is added):

"But it might allow you to get into conversations with people who need to meet the very One Who gave us His promise in the first place.

Okay. Now have a conversation with those whose houses/businesses have been flood-damaged by Hurricane Sandy. Also the relatives of those who have died as a result of such water/wind-related devastation. Maybe you'll end said conversations with you having many broken bones from having the shit kicked out of you, but remain alive to reconsider your words. Maybe.

'Promise', as per post-Noah/'Global Flood' etc? Well, seems that your so-called 'God' isn't omnipotent enough to be able to keep his so-called 'promises' then, as per what's happening now.

"Using it won’t make you a homosexual. It won’t make you a New Ager. It won’t make leprechauns real"

...nor your Biblegod neither. Gay sex. It does not make you go blind. It does not make hair grow on your palms. It does not stunt your growth. It does not make you vote Conservative. [/"Brand New Monty Python Bok"] X3


And as proven here:

Either Rainbow Dash has made DC Comics' 'The Flash' redundant, or your 'God' is having hyper-gay sex. >:D

So the rainbow is the LGBT symbol...

...now show me where it's written that it can't represent straight people too, Kenny-boy? The Rainbow Flag represents humanity in all it's diversity, with all it's myriad and fabulous facets; straight people can be fabulous too, as proven by Metrosexual men. Two words: David Beckham.

So your precious rainbow has been commandeered, 'robbed' from your so-called 'God', eh? Deal with it. And it can't be theft, when it's 'owner' never fucking existed in the first place. And show me where it's written that a natural (and even artificially & easily replicatable) phenomenon has been copyrighted & patented?


"So your god is Odin, then.

All hail the Bifrost Bridge!"

And the way it was visualised in the Kenneth Branagh film "Thor"...:

Thinking Allowed

Tell you what Ken. If the christians take back the rainbow, will you give the cross back to the romans?

10/31/2012 8:11:42 AM


It strikes me as hilarious that Ken thinks anyone can own a natural phenomenon. It's like arguing over who owns all the oxygen in the atmosphere.

10/31/2012 8:27:31 AM


Let me make this nice and simple so even you can understand...

Rainbows are the natural result of light refraction. They are not owned or copyrighted by anyone, especially not your religion. The rainbow is not a symbolic contract between God and man promising not to flood the earth. If that were the case then each individual rainbow after every thunderstorm would logically be a 'covenant from God' never to allow a storm again, and yet, here we are.

There is no spiritual battle on your part because nothing has been taken from you. The rainbow isn't yours anymore than it is the Pastafarians. Your religion doesn't have any patent on it anymore than it can have a patent on the sky. If you're still so adamant to 'take back the rainbow for God' maybe it's time to start that drudgery of a task of finding a lawyer who would actually be serious about this...
