(Breitbart) Newport Beach City Councilman Scott Peotter is the target of criticism after releasing an e-mail message attacking the gay rights movement and the White House for twisting the Biblical interpretation of the rainbow. The White House was illuminated in rainbow colors after the June 26 Supreme Court decision legalizing same-sex marriage.
Peotter noted that according to the Bible, the rainbow had been created to indicate God’s promise that he would not destroy the world again after the Great Flood. He wrote, "I do find it interesting that the homosexual movement adopted the rainbow as their symbol, as it was God’s symbol that he wouldn’t destroy the world by flood again. And maybe they are wishful thinking," according to the Los Angeles Times.
The email displayed the Newport Beach city seal and a photo of gay couples celebrating in Washington , D.C.
