This was a great move on the part of The Ark Encounter in Williamstown, KY. After all, the sign of the rainbow was given to Noah 5000 years ago, but was coopted by the LGBT+ crowd. Now that it’s used in its original context, they are freaking out. From Gary DeMar:
The rainbow has been used by Jesse Jackson for his “Rainbow Coalition.” But the rainbow’s most perverse misappropriation has been used by the homosexual and transgender crowd.
We see it everywhere. The White House was lit up in rainbow colors after the Supreme Court ruled in the 2015 Obergefell v. Hodges decision that homosexual marriage is a right.
The city of Atlanta spent $196,000 painting rainbow-colored crosswalks in celebration of a sex act and confused sexual identity (transgenderism).
Someone has finally decided to take back the rainbow in a big way. Answers in Genesis has lit up its ark with the rainbow and will continue to do so. Homosexuals are incensed, calling it “cultural appropriation,” as if the rainbow was the invention of those who engage in same-sex relationships.
“The Ark Encounter in Williamstown, KY, is now swimming in controversy after making the decision to change the night-time lighting on the Ark to rainbow colors. A tweet by co-founder Ken Ham reads, ‘Christians need to take back the rainbow as we do @ArkEncounter — God owns it — He decreed it’s a sign of His covenant with man after the Flood.’” (Source)
Ham went on to say:
“Sadly, people ignore what God intended the rainbow to represent and proudly wave rainbow-colored flags in defiance of God’s command and design for marriage. Because of this, many Christians shy away from using the rainbow colors. But the rainbow was a symbol of God’s promises before the LGBTQ movement — and will continue to be after that movement has ended. As Christians, we need to take the rainbow back and teach our young people its true meaning.”
