I'm not a huge fan of Tim Cook professionally (personally, on the other hand, he seems like a nice guy), but on this one, he's 100% right.

There's something very dangerous happening in states across the country.

A wave of legislation, introduced in more than two dozen states, would allow people to discriminate against their neighbors. Some, such as the bill enacted in Indiana last week that drew a national outcry and one passed in Arkansas, say individuals can cite their personal religious beliefs to refuse service to a customer or resist a state nondiscrimination law.

Others are more transparent in their effort to discriminate. Legislation being considered in Texas would strip the salaries and pensions of clerks who issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples - even if the Supreme Court strikes down Texas' marriage ban later this year. In total, there are nearly 100 bills designed to enshrine discrimination in state law.

America is the land of opportunity. Just don't be black, gay, or transgender.

Example: both Russia and Spain have signed to comply with the UDHR. From the scumbag Spanish President (my own) and the scumbag Russian President signed that no gay couple can adopt Russian children. They have violated Art. 1 (all humans have the same rights) and hence MUST TO BE PUNISHED.

What about necrophiles, pedophiles and incestuos people? Souldn't they also have the same rights?
