It is important because God did not create the Rainbow for such use to be used as a symbol or logo for the pride of improper conduct of homosexual lifestyle. God created the Rainbow as a sign or a covenant between Him, all humanity and living creatures that He will not flood the Earth. In the Bible, homosexuality is a sin and an abomination. Therefore, it is inappropriate, disrespectful and demoralizing to Christianity as a whole or any other religious faith-based organizations which believes in Christ to use a sign that God created for the promotion and promoting purposes of a lifestyle that God says is an abomination and is sin. The bible states in Genesis 9:13-17, 13-I do set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between Me and the earth. 14-And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow shall be seen in the cloud. 15-And I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh, and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. 16-And the rainbow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth." 17-And God said unto Noah, "This is the token of the covenant which I have established between Me and all flesh that is upon the earth." The bible states in Leviticus18:22 - Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. In Genesis 19 the city of Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed because of their sexual immorality. Other scriptures in the bible, 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, Romans 1:24-27, 1 Timothy 1:10 to name a few talks about homosexuality - its unnaturalness, unlawfulness and God's wrath to such practices. In conclusion, the usage of God's sign the Rainbow as a logo or for symbolism for something God clearly outlines as sin is offensive, profane, impious and blasphemy to religious practices. If the LBGT Community used Red, White and Blue as their colors for symbolism, Americans all over the country would be upset because the Red, White and Blue means something to Americans. The Rainbow means many different things to many different people both religious and non religious.The Rainbow itself is natural and symbolic. It should not be used to signify or be synonymous with a lifestyle not everyone agrees with nor everyone practices. Using the rainbow as a logo,sign, symbol or flag as representation for ungodly practices is negative and defaces the history and original intent of the rainbow.
