A humanist Independence Day

"As were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of man. For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and they did not know until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of man."
 – Matthew 24:37-39
Google's 4th of July doodle
Homosexual activists complained that Google did not dedicate a doodle to them during "gay pride" month. Even though Google did sneak in the six color rainbow symbol of the LGBT movement in select search results.

But now Google has made up for that by inserting the rainbow symbol into their 4th of July doodle. Instead of an American flag hovering in the background there is... a six color rainbow. Anyone that wants to deny this direct connection has to come up with a convincing argument that the rainbow is a traditional symbol of Independence Day. It isn't. It doesn't belong in this picture anymore than snowflakes do.

As for the rest of the symbolism, I suspect that there is quite a bit of it that is relevant to the homosexual community. I may be reading too much into this, but I seem to detect quite a bit of sexual symbolism. For instance the highway that splits the center of the map of the United States.

The cities that are symbolized also seem to have significance to the homosexual community:
New York – Statue of Liberty
San Francisco – Golden Gate Bridge
Honolulu – palm tree
Washington, D.C.? – bald eagle
Key West? – guitar and orange
Austin, TX? – horse with cowboy hat
Chicago – Sears/Willis Tower

Is there any significance to the fact that the American eagle is looking to its left, instead of to its right as it does on the Great Seal of the United States?

Where are the colors "red, white and blue"? Instead we have lavender hues.

What is the symbolism of a barn and a silo, a picket fence, a corvette? Do these have any special significance to homosexuals? Of course I understand that they are symbols of the midwest and middle America, but I'm wondering if there is another hidden meaning.

Excuse me, but a horse with a cowboy hat seems sort of.... "gay". And I'm not saying that in any sort of derogatory way. I'm just pointing it out.

The godless folks at Google were only outdone by a group of atheists that chose this day of national celebration to fly banners with anti-God slogans. And the American Humanist Association thought this would be a good time to encourage "non-theist Americans to ‘come out of the closet’ and openly identify as such."

In the Bible, the rainbow is a symbol of hope; but it only appeared after God had destroyed the world because "The LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually." (Genesis 6:5)
