NOM’s Sham Group The Ruth Institute Want Our Gay Symbol – Back Away From The Rainbow BITCH!

Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse (Her Ph.D is in Economics btw) of the National Organization for Marriage fronted Ruth-less Institute is hellbent on taking back the Rainbow from us gays!

Proposition 8 was passed by a great grassroots coalition that included people from all across the religious traditions, and also people of every race and color,” Morse recognizes. “We are the real rainbow coalition. The gay lobby does not own the rainbow.”

She tells OneNewsNow that she wore a rainbow-colored scarf to the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals hearing on Proposition 8 as a statement to signify that supporters of traditional marriage still own the symbol.

“We can’t simply let that go by. Families put rainbows in their children’s nurseries. Little Christian preschools will have rainbows…Noah’s Ark and all the animals…. Those are great Christian symbols, great Jewish symbols,” the Ruth Institute president points out.

Dan Savage put it best:  Let’s make a deal: give us our full civil equality—repeal DOMA, let us marry legally in all fifty states, end DADT, pass ENDA, stop torturing gay kids to death—and we’ll let you have your fucking rainbows back.”

What will you want next?  Cher?  Bette Midler? Anal Sex? 

Perhaps you’d like the Pink Triangle? 

Oh wait thats right.  YOUR KIND GAVE US THE PINK TRIANGLE YOU EVIL BITCH!

  1. We need no one's permission to keep using the rainbow as a gay symbol.

    And — BITCH is a sexist word. Gay folk(males?) do not need to use sexist language to tell off our enemies. The woman is a scumbucket, and a fascist. If homophobia were not hurting real human beings, gay people, it would be sad and funny. No one froths at the mouth about their own fantasies of other people's sex lives if they have a good sex life of their own.

    Lets just go on using the rainbow as one of our Gay symbols. They can't stop us. No one owns it. (Is it possible for anyone to get a law passed to forbid certain people from using the picture of natural phenomena to symbolize their existence? If so, lets get some constitutional lawyers on it.)

    Rainbows forever! We are everywhere!
