Christians Want To Take Their Rainbows Back. I Say We Let Them

Joseph Cornell: Untitled (How to Make a Rainbow), silkscreen, 1972

Some dumb Christian group (a redundancy, I know) wants to reclaim the rainbow from the hairdressers, because they've made all the rainbows filthy and gay and Muslim or something. After all, rainbows aren't simple atmospheric phenomena, but were a promise from god to Noah and all the cute animals on his ark, what, 5,000 years ago when the dinosaurs drowned. Alas.

Please. Can we please just throw them this bone and let them have their goddamn rainbows? I, for one, look forward to never seeing anything this insipid ever again:

 

Who's with me?

Jesus! Someone should figure out a way to harness their terminally high blood pressure & power the country.

Can we make a deal? They get the clothing and we get to keep the flag?

Thee flag is cute.

How about if we just pretend we're giving it up. After we reveal our treachery, it will be great fun watching all their heads explode.

They can have it as long as they take tie-dye too. I want to keep batik...and spandex (superheroes are so gay!) and of course leather (yeah Daddy!).

i say give the damned thing back to them, but let's keep indigo! i bet they won't even notice, and later on, we can make fools of them when we reveal that indigo was missing. that'll teach those asswipes!

Please, please, please, please, can we give them all that gay rainbow crapola? I wish the San Francisco group's name, Gay Shame, was original with me but it's not. However, every time I see a hideous rainbow tchotchke, I just want to join that organization.

The most redeeming thing about the Rainbow flag right now is that in Italy it has nothing to do with hairdressers and is instead their version of the three-pronged hippie Peace flag, except they're Italian and call it the Pace flag. The Italians are so confused and so beautiful.

I suggest we replace the rainbow stuff with Marlo Thomas "That Girl" t-shirts.

Rainbows are gay just like Christian rock, Stephen Baldwin and Mormonism. I think it makes better sense to let them add it to thier big pile o' lame.

Yeah, they can have it. I understand the history and symbolism and all, but... it's just ugly.

I say we share it with them.
More hilarity would ensue that way.
Besides, don't they have that big honkin' cross as their logo? What, that's not enough?

Jesus Lord-a-Hosts there sfmike, that Gay Shame group meets two blocks from my place! I'd be very interested if their rhetoric and meeting place didn't automatically seat them squarely in the epicenter of the Mission district's soapless, anarcho-syndicalist, trustafarian, douchebag counterculture.

So this still doesn't answer my question about why all license plates in Hawaii are gay.
