beatrice_otter: Dali's Christ of St. John of the Cross (St. John of the Cross)
On the other hand I do think the original tweet deserves mockery; it's an attempt to take people's complaints of cultural appropriation ("this thing is part of our culture, and you're claiming it for yourself without understanding it or caring about us") and turn Christians into the victim - which we aren't, anywhere we're a majority.

Exactly! Like, okay, Christians and Jews use the rainbow as a symbol. But both faiths have A HUGE NUMBER of other symbols that we use more regularly. If I were asked to name the top ten Christian symbols, the rainbow would not make it. They, on the other hand, do not have a huge store of positive symbols. I think we can let them have the rainbow.

And, let's be real, a color spectrum is neither the best nor the only way to turn a rainbow into a flag. If I wanted to make a "Christian rainbow" flag to tie into the story of Noah, what I'd do is I'd take a blue background and put a rainbow on it, so it's not just a color spectrum it's AN ACTUAL RAINBOW, and a much better callback to the Noah story. (Maybe I'd make it a grey background, instead? for the storms?)
