For decades the rainbow has been used as a symbol of pride for the modern queer rights movement… and not everyone is happy about that.
Ken Ham, the president, CEO, and founder of Answers in Genesis-US, a ministry “dedicated to helping Christians defend their faith and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ”. As well as the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter, recently wrote a blog post lamenting that LGBTQ people essentially stole the rainbow from Christian for their own nefarious uses.
“In recent times the rainbow (albeit with some different colors) has come to represent something far different,” Ham wrote. “To many people it means freedom, love, pride, a new era, and, specifically, the LGBTQ movement. But the rainbow itself wasn’t designed to be a symbol of freedom, love, pride, or the LGBTQ movement. God created this beautiful, colorful phenomenon and designated it as a sign of His covenant with Noah and his descendants forever.”
