The Talmud (Tractate Chagiga 16a) says that someone who is not protective of the honor of his creator it is would be better off if he hadn't come into the world. What is this referring to? Rabbi Abba said this is someone that looks at a rainbow. Rav Yosef says it refers to someone who does a transgression in privacy.... as it says, "like the appearance of a rainbow on a rainy day so is the appearance of the halo surrounding the holiness of the visage of the represntation of the honor of HY.

Moral of the story, don't be looking at the rainbow, it is a slight in honor of HY, G"F.

Speaking of rainbows, here is another suggestion I wrote in the comments to a previous post, explaining why some group would choose for themselves the rainbow (openly in contradistinction to Rav Yosef's privacy).

the rainbow is in fact the sign of the covenant, the awesome secret of the rainbow is explained in the beginning of the holy book Adir BaMurom of the Ramchal (on my blog you can find out a little about this awesome book which was written in the year NNNNM!), specifically on page 9 (meaning that you can't just read page 9 to understand, you have to read up to there), the rainbow is the manifestation of the holy root shining even on the external man, showing his deep connection and his being a vehicle of the revelation of HY, see there (if you do, and you read the story of how Rabbainu was prompted to reveal his Sefer Hamidos, you'll really appreciate why it is in Sefer Hamidos Rabbainu strikes out against them), basically the lgbt movement is the exact antithesis of the rainbow, so that is where they are aiming to fight.Even on a more superficial plane, we can understand that the only ability this movement has to stand against the Torah is the sign of the rainbow, which HY promised not to destroy the world. The Talmud says that the sin of wasting seed (which obviously applies even to gentiles, as we find many instances of it presented even before the giving of the Torah and the selection of Israel) brings the flood -- utter destruction of the world. These people are very involved in destroying the world, and as explained so beautifully in the first chapter of Tomer Devorah, there very act of rebellion is only with the life and strength that HY gives them. Their only ability to keep going is by being strong with G-d's promise not to destroy the world, manifested in the rainbow. However obviously HY can not be outsmarted or outmanouvered, and their day will come R"L.Na Nach Nachma Nachman MeUman!
