Re: "Attacks on Christians cry for world’s condemnation" (editorial, 4-8).
The editorial provides some sobering and much-needed perspective regarding Christian persecution. It's a pity we cannot have the same thing regarding persecution of gays.
Consider the matter of Apple Inc. CEO Tim Cook. Cook - an out gay - recently made headlines and was lauded as a hero when he excoriated Indiana's religious freedom law in an op-ed. Yet Apple still has stores in Iran, Saudi Arabia and other countries where gays are regularly imprisoned, tortured or executed.
One would hope that iPhone-toting liberals would take notice.
Lately there has been a lot of discussion surrounding whether furnishing a cake or a flower arrangement to a wedding celebration constitutes actual participation in that celebration, but in light of Apple's flagrant hypocrisy there can be no question that using an Apple product or owning Apple stock constitutes participation in the genuine persecution of gay people.
