God Made The Rainbow
God Made the Rainbow is a place to promote love, unity, and spiritual inclusion of all people. I believe that God made this world for everyone and everyone has an equal place in it, regardless of who they are or the creed to which they subscribe. Spirituality for all means spirituality for everyone, be they male or female, black or white, gay or straight, and also includes all the bigots, oppressors and haters of the world. I think we tend to lose sight of that fact, there is no room in Love for hatred of anyone, regardless of what they’ve done or how they conduct themselves. Only by being truly kind, loving and open to all people can we hope to make people understand what loving thy neighbour really means and to bring peace on Earth.
Originally, I created a blog of the same name for this purpose. It was quite popular, but I couldn’t maintaining the output I wanted, and GMTR was closed. However, the statement that God Made The Rainbow is as true today as it was then, and I didn’t want the voice it gave me to be silenced. So GMTR continues to a less ambitious extent on my personal blog here, and I hope one day it will exceed them. Archived articles are available below.
I am always on the look-out for new contributions to God Made the Rainbow. If you have a story to tell or an issue you would like to write about, please drop me a line here.

An extract from Moab is My Washpot, Stephen Fry’s excellent autobiography. Here Stephen has a little rant about what exactly he thinks of Christian homophobes.
An extract from Born on a Blue Day, an autobiography from Daniel Tammet about his life as an autistic savant. I was particularly interested by his comments towards the end of the book about being autistic and converting to Christianity.
