Apple: ‘Vote no on Prop 8’ in California

October 24th, 2008

Good for Apple:

Apple is publicly opposing Proposition 8 and making a donation of $100,000 to the No on 8 campaign. Apple was among the first California companies to offer equal rights and benefits to our employees’ same-sex partners, and we strongly believe that a person’s fundamental rights — including the right to marry — should not be affected by their sexual orientation. Apple views this as a civil rights issue, rather than just a political issue, and is therefore speaking out publicly against Proposition 8.

No one is free unless all of us are free. Here in Michigan, we already had a ballot initiative banning gay marriage added to our constitution. That was also the same year a guy named Bush got re-elected for president. It was a bummer year.

I’ve just recently discovered Andrew Sullivan over at the Atlantic, and he’s been flogging Prop 8 out in California. Rightly so. But it seems Apple is up against the Church of Latter Day Saints. How sad.

A word to husbands.

by Ogden Nash

To keep yoir marriacze brimming
With love in the loving up,
Whenever you’re wrong, admit it;
Whenever ijare right, Shut up.

[Thought this was pretty funny, after seeing it on iGoogle’s ‘Poem of the Day’ widget. Read the original here. Any husbands that can testify?]
