SILVER SPRING, Md. — As vigils for the Orlando shooting victims are held across the United States and the world, individuals and organizations are finding unique ways to support the victims’ loved ones. Free flights, free accommodation and, in the case of even some Adventist churches, free funerals are on offer.
Although no vigil for the tragedy has yet been held at the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, leadership joined in the show of love and support for the victims by digging up the most “rainbowed-up version” of the denomination’s branding artwork and making it the church’s official logo.
“Listen, nobody is saying we agree with certain aspects of the gay lifestyle, but God made rainbows and there is absolutely no reason we can’t show some love with an old image that we already had on file,” said GC Communications spokesperson Hazlo Porfa. “We already used the ‘Rainbow Brite’ version of our logo on Twitter last summer at the GC. No harm resurrecting it.”
