Apple CEO Tim Cook Washington Post op-ed slams anti-gay legislation

Even if one agrees with his viewpoints… he really shouldn’t drag Apple into political fights like this… politics is messy, dirty and often depressing…. something we all need to forget from time to time… and we don’t need a connection between that and our beloved devices….

In a Washington Post op-ed article published late Sunday night, Apple CEO Tim Cook expounded upon his earlier remarks on Twitter from Friday, saying he was "deeply disappointed" in the recently passed law in Indiana that shields business owners who turn away customers for religious reasons. Opponents to the law say it could enable discrimination against those who are gay.

Cook called this new wave of legislation — he wrote that nearly 100 similar bills were under consideration in over a dozen states across America — "very dangerous." He added that they "go against the very principles our nation was founded on" and "have the potential to undo decades of progress toward greater equality".
