Given that people in China are routinely arrested for homosexual activity, and many land in jail for this type of “licentiousness”, Tim Cook’s offer of his “brick” in the path of “justice” for gays seems not so momentous.
The CEO of Apple (which produces most of its products in China) imagines that he’s become more connected with the civil rights leaders of the past, by publicly announcing which kind of sex he likes. Says Cook in Bloomberg Business Week :
“When I arrive in my office each morning, I’m greeted by framed photos of Dr. King and Robert F. Kennedy. I don’t pretend that writing this puts me in their league. All it does is allow me to look at those pictures and know that I’m doing my part, however small, to help others. We pave the sunlit path toward justice together, brick by brick. This is my brick.”
After this offering……….. how is Tim Cook addressing his biiiig China difficulty? Is it similar to the way that Warren Buffet addresses his own taxes vs. what you should happily pay?
