God didn’t intend for rainbows to be on crosswalks

I’ve never considered myself to be an overly intellectual man. However, it seems to me that some things are just plainly obvious, like this particular issue which continually leaves me scratching my head in disbelief.

I’m sure most have noticed, as I have, the proliferation of rainbow symbols located all across this great nation of ours. One might be tempted to suggest that the rainbow symbol has become as iconic to us Canadians as the maple leaf or a Tim Horton’s sign.

Now I was under the distinct impression that the rainbow symbol was already taken many, many, years ago. And I’m pretty sure that the rainbow was not meant to represent anything other than the fact that this planet will never be entirely flooded over, ever again.

It seems reasonable to think that if anyone had taken the notion to alter the meaning behind the rainbow, they may have to face consternation from the One who originally created it. Especially if you alter its meaning to something contrary to the original Creator’s ideals.

Furthermore, it follows that the individual behind the original alteration has done so purposefully to directly mock the Original Creator of the rainbow. It is, as if they were trying to “pick a fight”, sort of speak, with its actual Designer.

If the Creator of the rainbow should decide to retaliate for this affront, and if He should want to ascertain exactly who His allies are, it would seem prudent to choose your side wisely, as most know, God always wins in the end.
