Christians: How do you feel about gays using God's Rainbow as their symbol?

I think this has to be said for the record:
Did gay people purposely use the God's Rainbow to slap Christians and God in the face? I hate it. It sickens me. I never really said anything outright about it, but I think I will say something this time. Since the world is in an uproar about Gay marriage, I think it needs to be said. Gays should find another symbol to represent themselves.
What makes me more upset than gay marriage creating a generation upon generation of immorality is defiling and tainting God's Rainbow which He gave us as a promise to never flood the world again. It's like they have no respect for God or Christians or anything. Even if you don't believe in God, you should still show respect. It's sickening, really. It's an abomination.

Even though what I'm about to say seems like a joke, sounds funny maybe to some, it's not: It's like they are doing a Double Abomination. First they are committing gay sex which is an abomination to God, then they are using God's promise as their symbol. I mean really, come on. Sheesh. It just irks me on every level. Why God's Rainbow, why? It has to be plain evilness. I don't know. Can't really say since I didn't associate it with it.

In any event, I know this will change nothing. That people will continue to use the rainbow to symbolize themselves which is God's. I know this post might upset people, but it had to be said.

Just for the record, Make up another symbol which isn't related to God. Really. Sheesh. Well, now that I said it, it's said and I can just go on with things. :)

    I may not be a Christian, but no real Christian would be as hateful as you are. People like you are not worth the dirt under your feet. The teachings of Jesus do NOT say to be a hateful, bigotted, small-minded, moron. They say be tolerant, loving, accepting, and judge not. Seriously.

    People always ask me why I have a problem with Christianity. I don't, the ideals taught are wonderful. It's the hypocrites who misinterpret and abuse said ideals for their own agenda that I have a problem with.

    The Rainbow doesn't belong to anyone. The Rainbow Flag originally represented Peace. Not homosexuality.

    I f anything, I think the rainbow symbol would better represent interracial marriages and families...what the heck do a bunch of different colors have to do with homosexuality? It's not even a logical symbol. It's like...dude, we need a symbol quick...uhhhhhh....look, there's a rainbow in my bedroom wallpaper! Good enough! What really gets up my nose is when they use the rainbow colors to replace the red and white stripes on the American Flag...that is horribly distasteful and disrespectful to veterans such as my step dad who gave his life for our country's TRUE flag and what it represents. It's actually against the law to pervert (no pun intended) the flag in any way shape or form.

    I don't hate it. Gays are God's Children too. It is hard for anyone to reign in one's sex drive. Harder for Gays who must remain celibate or sin. Everyone has a sex drive. Sins of the Flesh occur in both same sex and opposite sex relationships. God deals with us individually, he reads our hearts.

    Get over yourself. Your silly, antiquated god is as imaginary as your IQ. Religious bigotry and intolerance are far more of an abomination than homosexuality ever will be.

    It shows God's love for our differences. A single color represents the unique individual we are, the whole rainbow represents that we are all God's children.

    "Even if you don't believe in God, you should still show respect" - and where is your respect for others?
    "First they are committing gay sex which is an abomination to God" - in the years I was christian, a lot of people told me that abomination is Hate, not Love. So, maybe you should see yourself in the mirror before calling others abominations.
    "I know this post might upset people, but it had to be said. " - actually, no, it didn't have to be said, because the rainbow, for what I know, it's not God's symbol in any way. It's the white dove. Or am I wrong?
    There is so much obvious flaws on your logic, that it makes me think you're a troll.

    I find it so ironic that the supporters of gay marriage preach Love, not Hate, tolerance and respect...but you will find more statements spewing this kind of garbage from those folks toward those with differing values and opinions. Where is their Love and tolerance? Huh?

    In all the years I have been around Christians, not even one person talked about rainbows (*being God symbol).And I practically live on the side of a church with a lot of people that live and believe in this religion fiercely. Like I said, I heard about the dove, but never about the rainbow ( -_-)

    The question is homosexuals using the rainbow. The person that did this poll, gave the impression that rainbows represented God. The rainbow is not God symbol. That's my point.

    Our Rainbow isn't God's. Our Rainbow is a spectrum of colors from the sun... -_-

    And the reason why the Rainbow is used for Gay Pride is because of Judy Garland's "Somewhere Over The Rainbow"... look up the history of Gay Pride.

    Yes, but what/who caused all these things to happen? (The rainbow, the elements, etc.) God said that the rainbow was His covenant.

    There's no proof of evidence of God, therefore that's just a belief. You can't actually PROVE that God created these things because there's no proof he exists. Unlike beliefs, there's actual solid evidence that Rainbows are a spectrum of colors from the SUN. So, until you can actually provide evidence that God exists, your beliefs aren't valid.

    Well, what's the definition of FAITH? Belief WITHOUT evidence. Just because you can't see Him, doesn't mean He doesn't exist. And how do you think life came on the planet? Of course, not by evolution... I think God feels more appreciated when people have faith in Him. To me, being an atheist is like having no mother or father. Another question, have you ever read the Bible? (KJV Recommended)

    Oh yea that's right! I totally forgot when it comes to something like religion, God, etc... it doesn't require proof or evidence because it's all "faith"... But God forbid the idea of someone being BORN Gay needs proof or evidence to back it up! Nice hypocrisy! You're an idiot.

    I was BORN Gay. I didn't choose to be this way. Homosexuality is NOT sinful or an abomination! And guess what? I don't need any fricken evidence of this! You know why? Because I have FAITH! I believe I was BORN Gay, therefore I don't need to provide proof! Just because you don't see a Gay trait inside me doesn't mean it doesn't exist. It's still there. You just gotta have faith! ;)

    The resort to when one can't argue anymore. We love gay people, but they're showing us their sexuality, rather than themselves and the things that non LGBT supporters can appreciate for them. That's why it appears as if Christians "hate" homosexuals.

    "there is much hypocrisy in Christianity, but is that a good excuse to become an atheist/ unbeliever?" - it's not an excuse. It's a reason, and it's a good one, for what I see. Tell me, honestly, how much do you trust a person that you know it's a hypocrite? Sincerely, I can't trust that person that much.

    You are going to spend the rest of your life being a very unhappy person if you continue to believe that you can pick and choose which of your God's creations is beautiful and which is ugly.

    The anti-gay passages in the Bible were written by humans thousands of years ago. Those humans have blinded you to reality, and now have YOU judging your own God's works. You've made a huge mistake by aligning yourself with the forces of ignorance and hate.

    If you do not adamantly oppose wearing clothing make with two different fabrics, you are picking and choosing your biblical "abominations". Shame on you.

    How do you even know God without a bible which men have written? If you don't believe in the God of the bible your God is not the same as our God. Secondly there are key differences between the old testament and the new testament but in both homosexuality is a sin. When you don't even understand the Bible using it in your defense is not very wise.

    It's all stories made up by humans.

    There is no god, no sin. There IS good and evil, concepts made up by humans.

    Denying other humans the right to live their own lives apart from your rules and judgement is evil.
    Love, undestanding and acceptance are good.

    It's really very simple, until you bring bronze-age mythology into it.

    I mean that God is real, but it takes faith and insight. That's a reason why there's no proof of God's existence- He wants people to believe He is real, not just to know out of what proof provides.

    And hear me out; I do not have any contempt in my heart for gay people. I only have a hard time tolerating our disagreements. I have a couple of friends who are gay, and I love them because they understand that I can love them without concurring with their beliefs.

    Love, understanding and acceptance are good, but there's a path in which each takes you, and they all must be navigated with wisdom and boundaries.
