I completely agree. If Apple thinks that it is okay to pull out of a State that respects the First Amendment when it comes to the right to practice one’s faith, they should definitely pull out of countries where gays are executed every damn day. I bet they won’t, though.
According to their Islamic-based governments, homosexuality is punishable by death in Nigeria, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Iran. So not only is it willing to “tolerate discrimination” in those countries, Apple is also happy to sell an iPod to the people who are murdering gays so they can listen to some cheery music when they’re done. What these nations are doing to their gay communities is despicable and should be condemned by every decent person. We hope Tim Cook believes that as well.
