Homophobe Tony Perkins, the leader of listed hate group Family Research Council has taken umbrage with Apple CEO Tim Cook’s decision to come out
Last month, Perkins claimed that gay rights are part of a wider "anti-life" agenda to end humanity as we know it. In February he attacked Disney for featuring a same-sex couple on ‘Good Luck Charlie.’
Although it goes without saying that Perkins and co. will jump on any anti-gay bandwagon, he is less than happy when business leaders take a pro-equality stance. Back in April for example, and with a complete lack of insight, Perkins weighed in on the Chick-Fil-A controversy by claiming that “tolerance is a one-way street for [people who seek equal rights]. What they want to do is force the rest of America not to just to tolerate but to celebrate what they're doing.”
With his finger firmly on the pulse, Perkins says that Cook's announcement has "upset the apple cart" and hints at a potential boycott:
"When companies get involved in cultural battles, every consumer is forced to take part. As conservatives we aren’t looking for businesses to take our side – we just want them to be neutral. Of course, Tim Cook has the right to express his views but consumers have rights too, including the right to respond. As Christians we’re called to be good stewards of god’s money…and apps like 2nd Vote and Faith-Driven Consumer help shoppers do exactly that. Let’s face it, money talks and corporate America is listening.”
Who wouldn't love to see Family Research Council boycott Apple for Christmas?
