ABC quotes Apple CEO Tim Cook:
America’s business community recognized a long time ago that discrimination, in all its forms, is bad for business. At Apple, we are in business to empower and enrich our customers’ lives. We strive to do business in a way that is just and fair. That’s why, on behalf of Apple, I’m standing up to oppose this new wave of legislation — wherever it emerges. I’m writing in the hopes that many more will join this movement. From North Carolina to Nevada, these bills under consideration truly will hurt jobs, growth and the economic vibrancy of parts of the country where a 21st-century economy was once welcomed with open arms.
The days of segregation and discrimination marked by “Whites Only” signs on shop doors, water fountains, and restrooms must remain deep in our past… “We must never return to any semblance of that time. America must be a land of opportunity for everyone… This isn’t a political issue. It isn’t a religious issue. This is about how we treat each other as human beings.
Such laws and hatred for mankind come from those who claim to be Christian but act in an abhorrent way themselves.
