Apple Applauds Supreme Court Rulings on Same-Sex Marriage

Posted by · 9116 views · Translate

Apple has issued a statement applauding Supreme Court rulings today on same-sex marriages, reports AllThingsD.

In a pair of 5-4 decisions, the Supreme Court on Wednesday ruled in favor of same-sex couples in two major cases, effectively allowing federal benefits for gay couples and clearing the way for same-sex marriages in the state of California. One ruling overturned the Defense of Marriage Act, or DOMA, the bill passed in 1996 that ruled same-sex marriages unconstitutional. The other decision left intact a lower-court ruling that invalidated California’s Prop. 8 ban on same-sex marriage.

Apple issued a statement to the site saying:

“Apple strongly supports marriage equality and we consider it a civil rights issue. We applaud the Supreme Court for its decisions today.”

The company publicly donated to the “No on Prop 8” campaign in 2008.

I am an Atheist, myself. I don't agree with the lifestyle - it's simply not for me. But who in the flying fuck am I to tell somebody else who they can and cannot love? Shame on you hateful, religious bastards - try being more Christ-like and less Christian. It's not "civil rights," it's not "gay rights," it is a HUMAN'S right to give his/her heart to whomever will give their's in return.

Tim Cook is sooo gay.

Tim Cook tops Out magazine's Power 50 list for third straight year
Newcomers to influential list include drag queen RuPaul...

In the past, the magazine has included figures it knew to be gay but who had not made public declarations: Anderson Cooper and Jodie Foster were cover stars in 2007, but it was only last year that both publicly announced they were gay.

That said, the magazine has not shied from placing Apple's CEO Tim Cook at the top of its latest list...It is Cook's third consecutive year at the top of the list.

Now the Supreme Court just made a "Gay" ass decision. Marriage is between a man and a woman. Not two dudes sweating on each other. GROSS!! Now two hot chicks going at it is something else. I support that. But they gotta be hot chicks. Fat chicks/ ugly chicks = no go. I think the majority of the People will support this idea or way of thinking. Besides a penis was made for a pussy. The physics work.

They said this is a civil rights issue, but I fail to see anywhere in the constitution that says that any of those rights apply to homosexuals. Granted this is a free country and all, do as you please, but there are just some people that don't deserve the same rights as others. I'm not speaking out from a biased close minded perspective, its just a fact, homosexuals do not deserve equal rights (especially on a religious level >marriage)
