A London art group painted a rainbow on a bridge as a “symbol of hope” during COVID.
But nothing could have prepared them for the hateful wrath they were about to experience.
It wasn’t long before homosexual activists lashed out – and that was just the beginning…
When London-based art group Artmongers set up a rainbow mural on a bridge in South London, they intended it to cheer up children during lockdown.
Throughout the pandemic, children and artists around the world have used the rainbow in various window designs and murals to thank healthcare workers and other essential workers for their sacrifices.
“The natural phenomena [is] a symbol of hope,” Artmongers wrote, discussing their work on the rainbow mural.
They never expected anyone to protest their it!
But liberal activists can twist anything to fit their agenda and this simple mural for kids was no exception.
“The rainbow is ours,” claimed Brockley Queers, an LGBTQ advocacy group in South London.
In an almost laughable statement, the group accused Artmongers of “appropriating” the rainbow symbol as a way of undermining and oppressing LGBTQ-identifying individuals in London.
“You cannot use the rainbow ‘with a different meaning’…without taking it away from us. You are appropriating a symbol the LGBT+ community has had and used worldwide for over 40 years.”
Brockley Queers made every effort to take offense at the innocuous work of Artmongers.
“If your intention was to celebrate children and [healthcare workers], you could have done so without recycling the pride flag, an inherently queer symbol.”
Never mind that the rainbow, which was created by God as a promise to Noah – and all of us – is the furthest thing from being “an inherently queer symbol!”
The homosexual activists went so far as demanding that Artmongers replace the artwork with another mural and even make a mural explicitly for LGBTQ-identifying individuals.
“The rainbow bridge is on public property and is your gift to the community, so the community should be able to do with it as they see fit,” Brockley Queers wrote after defacing the mural with stencils and political statements.
“The rainbow is ours. Especially this pride month.”
Although Brockley Queers was evidently hoping for support on social media and the internet, their statement was greeted with a little less support than they expected.
“Stunning lack of self-awareness and astonishing display of narcissism,” wrote one Twitter user who went on to condemn the group for defacing “a rainbow painted, for kids, on a public bridge.”
Other social media users echoed the same sentiments, expressing disbelief that the LGBTQ activists could be so selfish and blind to the other meanings of the rainbow.
Even one LGBT-identifying commentator admitted that the rainbow is not an “explicitly queer” symbol.
He noted that the rainbow has been a symbol for other communities for many decades long before it was appropriated by homosexuals.
“Not least in Christianity where the rainbow denotes God’s covenant—a connection between God and all living creatures—with Noah,” this commentator wrote.
In these turbulent times it’s more important than ever to remember the original meaning of the rainbow!
When Noah stepped off the Ark after riding out a worldwide flood, God showed His presence and power by setting a beautiful rainbow in the sky.
“I now establish my covenant with you and with your descendants…Never again will all life be cut off by the waters of a flood; never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth,” (Genesis 9:9, 11).
“Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creature of every kind on the earth,” (Genesis 9:16).
Praise God for His faithfulness and His power! Let’s stand strong in the Word and remember that the rainbow is God’s—and ours!
