If the rainbow so freely given by WP was on the main page of a blog, it still would have been wrong, but not as egregious as the banner provided in the ‘bedroom’ of the blog owner. That’s right, the admin. page and place that is more intimate than the blog itself. The ‘personal’ page is for the blog owners eyes only. Get it?
WP knows this, and is sending a message, not only of happiness that the new dawn is arising, and that people are becoming more ‘intellectually stable,’ but to say unashamedly that blog owners, (well certain ones anyway) are on notice. WP knows that the ones on board with the Court’s decision will not care about the violation of personal blog space.
But the rainbow! The universal symbol of ‘peace, tolerance, happiness.’ Yuck, and more yuck. It is the grand larceny and perversion of that which is good, as in the everlasting promise of God. It is HIS rainbow, taken and used to put a pretty face on decadence.
The overtness of the intrusion was no doubt met with instant disdain, and WP has played the hand of the fool.
In their ‘What’s hot?’ tag, they conveniently left out, ignored, and refused the biggest ‘hot’ story of the day. That’s right, you can read about style, fashion, animals, etc, but not one word of what people are actually talking about. A little (or a lot) bit of disingenuousness perhaps.
Here is the voice by they who agree that the rainbow banner is no big deal: ‘If you don’t like it, leave WP.’ Sure, how convenient to bid adieu to that which exposes light upon darkness. Is not this a consistent word that has been ringing since yesterday? Yep.
In another place, https://insanitybytes2.wordpress.com/2015/06/26/listen-up-wordpress/ has offered some observations and deserved criticisms about the ‘decoration’ of her post. (Comments also excellent) Yeah, a person who has openly no use for God, and who hates Jews, may be a tad upset if his blog was graced with a cross or the star of David.
C’mon WP, be realistic. Your brainstorming by the guys and gals has come up woefully short, and perhaps an apology may be in order.
And to those of you who may want to jump ship and listen to ‘other’ voices. Don’t. At least wait until the smoke settles. Nothing would make an unbeliever more happy than to feel elation that one more blog representing daylight has been defeated. Ugh. ‘Victory!’ they will cry, as if by losing one bloggers presence the truth of scripture will somehow be tarnished. Uh, no chance.
There is a bigger picture here which makes God’s word more relevant, and your voice is needed. Stay the course, resist the urge to bail because of a rainbow banner that is offensive. Reject the invitation by the unbeliever to ‘go away.’ You and your voice are needed. The fog will clear, the dust will settle, and hopefully the smoke will disappear.
