With Confederate flags coming down across the country, Obamacare passing in the Supreme Court, and today’s nationwide legalization of gay marriage, conservatives are having a rough go of it lately.

But as the Court’s ruling reads: “Changed understandings of marriage are characteristic of a Nation where new dimensions of freedom become apparent to new generations.”

To help celebrate these “new dimensions of freedom,” we’ve rounded up some of the best rainbow-themed gifs to post to Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr. They’re the perfect responses to all those “God will not be mocked” tweets we’ve been hearing so much about.

You need a sparkly rainbow, you say? To really make the point stick? Got you covered.

Feel free to take it to the limit with the help of your Adventure Time pals.

Or another rainbow-lovin’ animated buddy, Spongebob.

Want a psychedelic-hued animal to help you get the message across? Try this unicorn barfing up a rainbow.

Or this one.

Tell everyone how you’ll react if faced with any anti-rainbow rantings.

Or just chill out with this mellow moodring-esque rainbow gif.

Finally, no matter how you want to spread the #LoveWins glory today, remember: If you see a particularly rude, bigoted tweet that fills you with rage, don’t express your anger in writing. Say it instead with two sparkly unicorns doin’ it in all their rainbow-glory.
