Take Back the Rainbow

I love color. All color, all shades. I am blessed to live in a part of the country where the lakes look like liquid sapphires in the summer, snow crystals form millions of prisms in the winter, leaves look like crisp fire in the autumn and every sunrise reveals colors only nature can produce. Its no wonder that I love the rainbow. I've seen beautiful rainbows in Rome, Venice, Ireland, and right over my own back yard. It irks me to no end that this has become a symbol to glorify sodomy and licentiousness.

You know those bumper stickers that people put on the back of their cars? I'm tempted to start putting them on my car simply because it's wrong that we allow a group of deviants to use it for their symbol. For them, it has nothing to do with the promise to Noah from God to never destroy the earth by flood again. For them, it has nothing of the hope and the promise of eternal salvation.
Why have we let others take our symbols like the rainbow, the name "Madonna", the unicorn, the peacock, the pelican and desecrate them at the worst, or completely secularize them at the least?

I don't care what people think, I'm heading out to my nearest 'peace and justice' store and taking back the rainbow.

Uh..., well, I would if I wasn't boycotting the 'peace and justice' store. *sigh*

I was going to say don't do that b/c you will find yourself suddenly propositioned especially when you cross the border into MA and I don't mean by men.

Hey, Petrus, you could join the lady Masons - they have the "Order of the Rainbow" - probably some pretty nifty gear to boot! Some of the junk from the Cursillo has the Rainbow on it, with 'De Colores" written above it. I have one of these emblems in my "LeFebvrolet" You are right - the rainbow used to mark the end of the flood - now it marks the beginning of the flood of perversity polluting the earth. There is a signi-ficance in the mnemonic:` R-0-Y-G-B-I-V -"roy" should be no more> why don't you work out a new mnemonic relating to the true wonder of the God-made rainbow and get some bumper stickers made! Good post!!

This was an excellent post. I too, have become plain frustrated at the counterfit symbols. But we know that is what the enemy does... He takes something Beautiful that God intended for good, and twists it into corruption.

Some of us still know the meaning of the rainbow, and will pass it along to our kids.
