Individual symbols don't belong to religions or groups. The use of the most common symbols usualy predates their use by any one group by centuries, this is the case with the rainbow and the crescent moon, and the pentagram. Christianity has no monopoly on the use of the rainbow as a symbol. All these symbols are the inheritance of all mankind and anyone can use them as they see fit.

I think the thing that bugs me the most is that this guy thinks that the rainbow is a symbol used exclusively by gays. The rainbow as a symbol represents diversity standing and working together to make something great and beautiful. Gays use it to promote tolerance and diversity with regards to sexual orientation, but it has also been used to represent tolerance and diversity between race relations.
TO be fair you can use the rainbow too, but I doubt you will be using it for its most commonly accepted meaning of tolerance and diversity. Christians can use the rainbow because they can also stand beside people of other faiths. To be tolerant and accepting and working together with one another despite differences is what the rainbow is all about.

I'd be really too if the symbol of my God being a forgetful genocidal maniac was taken away

@ Anon e moose: "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."
As a gay woman I am very relieved that gay sex doesn't make you vote Tory XD.

"The rainbow is a symbol, but it’s meaning points to the very character of God. "
Because they are both illusions?

Christianity does not own rainbows.

" the rainbow is a symbol that points to the very nature of God'
Okay, so your god is a murderous tyrant?

When Christians decided that they owned marriage, owning the rainbow was just a small extra step.

Actually, pentacle is a five-sided object. A pentagram is an inscription that has five sides. Think of it like receptacle and telegram and you should keep 'em straight.

The symbol for we straight
people is the Laser:
Yet, a Laser can make fabulous
patterns in all the colours of the rainbow, and more besides.
Kenny-boy & his 'hetero' ilk never got that memo, though. Kinda difficult to receive notes through the door of a closet, eh Ken?

No, the rainbow is a symbol of light being refracted when passing by water.

Great idea, they give you back the rainbow, and you give them the cross. Then everybody's happy.
