"What could he bring us? The Ebola virus, AIDS, gonorrhea? They all have unseemly ties over there," Mr Milonov told the FlashNord website. "Ban him for life."

Apple CEO Tim Cook's declaration that he's "proud to be gay" wasn't exactly news in Silicon Valley, where his sexual orientation was no secret. But advocates say that given Apple's immense reach and visibility, his coming-out could help change attitudes in workplaces across America.

But attitudes in pockets of exported hate, now that's a different story.

Tim Cook was named Apple CEO in 2011. The people at Apple knew about his sexuality, but Tim didn't formally "come out" ... until last Friday. So many prominent people gave their unqualified support. Except, of course, the anti-gay voices in America where bullshit reigns:

Ben Shapiro - Breitbart y
"No conservative is going to launch a boycott against Apple over this," Shapiro said. "Nor should they -- we are not the ideological totalitarians those on the left are."

Tony Perkins

As conservatives, we aren't looking for businesses to take our side. We don't want them to take either side! All we're asking is for them to focus on their mission of providing quality products and service.

OMFG! When did Mr. Perkins decide that boycotts never happened? "One Million Moms" has to hear about this! Also: J.C. Penney, Starbucks, Home Depot ...

Investors fear Apple could feel a backlash from U.S. Christians and international customers because of the announcement. One investor told StreetInsider.com, "While I don't care if he's gay, Mr. Cook changed the conversation today and threw investors under a bus. He put the spotlight on himself versus the company. This was a disservice to investors."

Hmmm... to date, Apple stock remains relatively unchanged and not unhinged.

Back in Anti-Gay and Exported Hate Countries...
