Tim Cook: Apple Employee, Supply Chain Guru, Friend of the late Steve Jobs, Billionaire, Successor to Steve Jobs position as CEO of the worlds most valuable corporation, Gay Rights Activist. I find nothing wrong with any of these roles that Tim plays in life, except for when he mixes the last two roles together. There are several issues in our society today that are very polarizing, that people will take a strong stand on. Some include abortion, the invasion on our southern border, excessive taxation, religion, politics, global warming and gay rights. Bring up any of these subjects in a crowd of people and emotions will rise and stands will be taken. This is all great. Thankfully we, for the moment, still live in a nation where we can still have an opinion and openly voice it. Our constitutions First Amendment provides us that freedom. But it does not protect us from the consequences that we may face. A perfect example of how polarizing these subjects can be is on this forum, the AFB. How many people have become upset and left because of any of these subjects? And we all have one thing in common, that we have a love for Apple. Tim Cook, Apples CEO is the figurehead of the corporate that I/we are heavily invested in. Each time a child comes home from school and discusses their class on sex education and the new words that they have learned such as fisting, oral and anal sex, tossed salad and how their gender is determined by how you feel any particular day parents become angry. Because of Tim Cooks open/active stand, and by default Apple and its products and services come to peoples mind and it is affecting peoples buying choices. I am very pro-life. I find the thought of the premeditated murder of the unborn and newly born children, along with the harvesting of their organs as one of the most repulsive practices a nation can commit. But having said that, I would also be critical of Tim Cook if he were to come out as a pro-life supporter and describe how Apple would work to stop this discrimination against the unborn. So, if Tim Cook wants to be the Apple CEO and work as an activist, then find a need that will be supported by all. Maybe come out against the world wide sex trafficking industry where even young children are sold into a life of abuse, never to know a normal childhood or to even experience what normal is. One would be hard pressed to find anyone that would not applaud Tim Cook and Apple for such activism. Well, Bill Clinton may complain.
