Linda Harvey, who runs the Christian activist group Mission America, complained on June 27 that the "sweet rainbow" has been "raped" by gay people.
Harvey made her feelings known in an op-ed for WorldNetDaily:
But the sweet rainbow image has been violated, raped by the deluded and fraudulent, and it now serves too often as a garish signpost for slavery to grave homosexual sin.
It’s clear God did not intend for the rainbow to represent rebellion, iniquity and division. So how did this precious symbol become the banner, with few objections, for human depravity, lust, defiance and heresy?
Rainbow flags are flown in America from some government buildings, at some of our embassies, and these colors on several occasions even lit up our White House (under the former regime, thank God). From shameful pride parades to hats, T-shirts, wristbands and buttons sold at Target or Walmart, sexual deviance is being colorfully and arrogantly proclaimed from America’s rooftops.
Harvey then lamented that U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson recently ordered a Christian cross removed from a public park in Pensacola, Florida, because the religious symbol sits on government property, which violates the First Amendment's separation of church and state.
Harvey insisted the cross didn't violate the law:
No, it doesn’t, because Congress is not involved in this local issue, as AFA’s Bryan Fischer astutely pointed out. How long will Americans tolerate juris misprudence by black-robed fascists?
U.S. district judge Roger Vinson issued his ruling reluctantly, but still bowed before court precedents that already defy the clear meaning of "Congress shall make no law…" Carrying forward the judicial sins of the past, Judge Vinson trampled on this inspiring monument to truth and grace.
Harvey added that rainbows representing gay pride offended her, and suggested trademarking the rainbow:
Well, I’m offended by the rainbows hung all over Columbus, Ohio, every June for "pride" month, as this beautiful image morphs into a brand identity for perversion. I feel excluded because the depraved have taken the Lord’s glorious sign of hope and corrupted it. Why shouldn’t I sue?...
Yet millions are being misled by this wicked movement, and it’s especially heartbreaking that so many are children and teens. I wonder if perhaps it’s time for believers to claim the rainbow again, by legal means if we could.
Can we trademark the rainbow? Of course, it’s probably impossible and perhaps even inappropriate.
Harvey advised the LGBTQ community to use different colors to reflect its culture: "colors like brown, puce, mauve, gray and black -- lots and lots of black."
Harvey concluded: "Little children understand the goodness of the rainbow. The rest of us should follow suit."
In February, Harvey unloaded on Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, who reportedly did not support repealing President Obama's Title IX sex discrimination guidelines for transgender students:
In fact, the false pro-"gay" messages schools broadcast to children resemble the grooming a pedophile does before molesting a child. When these deviant desires are positioned to children as normal and natural, vulnerable kids more readily accept same-sex seduction by an adult or older peer.
Is DeVos OK with setting children up for this? Many of today’s clueless educators are.
Is she aware of the damage pretend "gender change" does to developing young bodies through puberty-blocking drugs, cross-hormone medication, breast-binding and so on?
