Note to Tim Cook:
First of all, I love you man. But you’re on the wrong side of this one, dude.
Christians believe the Bible calls homosexual relations sinful. Christians believe that marriage is the divine consecration of sexual relations between a man and a woman. Ergo, Christians believe that having a “wedding” to perform a “marriage” of people for homosexual relationships is beyond wrong. Christians believe that “Gay Marriage” is a depraved mockery of a central tenet of their religious faith. Christians don’t want to participate in those proceedings because it makes them part of a depraved mockery of their religious beliefs. You need to get that. Seriously. If you don’t get that, you’re not qualified to be in the discussion.
That isn’t hate. Trying to pass laws that force people to participate in a depraved mockery of their religious beliefs is hateful.
Killing people for being homosexual is hate. That’s what happens in Muslim countries living under Sharia Law. Courage is taking on the whole Middle East for murdering people for the sin of homosexuality. That would require some chutzpah and some nerve. While you’re there, why don’t you do something about the genital disfigurement and general oppression of women. I mean, come on. If you’re going to take on big issues, take on big issues. If you want to fight hate, go fight some real hate. Hate, where people are killed because they behave differently. Hate, where people are killed because they are Sunni instead of Shiite and vice versa.
Thinking you’re taking on hate because some Christian won’t bake you a cake or do your flower arrangements is just gay.
