New anti-gay laws in US are ‘dangerous’: Apple chief

WASHINGTON (TIP): Apple chief Tim Cook slammed what he called a wave of “dangerous” laws in several US states that he said promote discrimination and erode equality, in an editorial published on Sunday.

Cook – one of the most prominent chief executives to publicly acknowledge his homosexuality – wrote in the Washington Post that socalled “religious freedom” laws passed in several states threaten to undo progress toward greater equality.

“There’s something very dangerous happening in states across the country,” Cook wrote in the editorial.

“These bills rationalize injustice by pretending to defend something many of us hold dear. They go against the very principles our nation was founded on.” Cook’s comments follow the adoption of a controversial law in the state of Indiana last week that critics say would allow businesses to deny service to homosexuals on religious grounds.

Activists say it makes it legal for businesses whose owners reject homosexuality on religious grounds to turn away LGBT customers.
