Tim Cook claims Religious Freedom Laws are Dangerous

The famous and popular CEO of Apple, Tim Cook, decided to talk about the religious freedom laws that have been extremely debated in the past few weeks.

Cook claimed that these laws are actually really dangerous. The CEO of Apple also said that America is on the way to change and it is not for the better.

The law which raised controversy was signed by Indiana's governor last week, stating that an action by state or local government may not “substantially burden a person's right to exercise of religion.” 

Cook wrote for the Washington Post his perspective on the new legislation, alleging that it will actually allow businesses to refuse service to certain people because of their sexual orientation, justified by religious reasons.

So, according to Apple's CEO the Indiana Religious Restoration Act will allow individuals to cite personal religious beliefs to refuse service to a customer or resist a state non-discrimination law.

“I have great reverence for religious freedom,” Tim Cook wrote. “As a child, I was baptized in a Baptist church, and faith has always been an important part of my life. I was never taught, nor do I believe, that religion should be used as an excuse to discriminate.”

Tim Cook said that not only that this is something that may sustain discrimination under religious freedom claims, but it actually is not good for business.

 Cook added that Apple is “standing up to oppose this new wave of legislation.” Cook asked everyone to join his action, adding that Apple never discriminates and absolutely anyone will be welcomed by the company.

“Our message, to people around the country and around the world, is this: Apple is open. Open to everyone, regardless of where they come from, what they look like, how they worship or who they love,” Cook alleged.

The CEO of Apple added that Apple will never tolerate discrimination, no matter what laws are adopted in the United States. Cook went on to say that the issue is not a religious or political one.

 It actually brings into question how people treat each other, as human beings. Cook called for anyone to oppose discrimination, saying that it is “time for all of us to be courageous.”
