That was all well and good, until Ham tried to reclaim the rainbow for God.
Because marginalized people apparently don't suffer enough, they also have to deal with people like Ham, who seem think they've stolen their cultural symbols.
"Christians need to take back the rainbow as we do @ArkEncounter -God owns it-He decreed it's a sign of His covenant with man after the Flood," he tweeted.
Ham may not have specifically mentioned LGBTQ people, but the implication was clear. Naturally, it didn't go down well on Twitter.
Some pointed out that the ark may have always been giving us hints.
And one person posited the theory the boat is perhaps bisexual.
Either way, it's clear that the boat has become an icon in and of itself.
News flash: Rainbows are a natural phenomenon, a refraction of light that occurs through water or a prism, and none of us technically "own" it. But all jokes aside, the rainbow is an important cultural symbol for LGBTQ people, with a long history in the gay rights movement.
Ham probably didn't expect his Twitter mentions to explode when he sent out those tweets, but then again, he also probably didn't see what happened the last time someone tried to "take back" the rainbow.
