Apple Among 60 Companies to File Statement with U.S. Supreme Court Backing Gay Marriage
Bloomberg reports that Apple is among 60 companies that have signed on to a filing that will be presented to the Supreme Court backing gay marriage in the United States. The court is currently weighing the constitutionality of California's Proposition 8, in which voters barred gay marriage in 2008. Apple had publicly opposed Proposition 8 at the time.

Anyway, with how much separation of church and state has happened in the last 100 years, I just don't get how gay marriage isn't allowed in every state. I know some people stand up for so called "traditional values", but those values come from the bible. How much longer are they going to put bible values as laws? I know that these values are just the mores of our society that became our laws to start, but there is a point where it needs to change, and this is coming from a conservative christian.

As someone pointed out earlier Apple has backed this while Steve Jobs was at the helm so your reaction is bogus.
And what about the CEOs of Intel, Facebook, etc.? Are they gay? I don't think so.
This claim reminds me of the days when whites who backed civil rights - HUMAN rights for African Americans were called ****** lovers.
Good grief! You'd think people would have evolved from such neanderthal mindsets by now.

Gay marriage? Don't care... except for the fact that gay rights organizations try to punish those who express their sentiment if it is against them. For that alone, I'd vote NO. Otherwise, I wouldn't have any opinion.
I'm also totally fine with it if it doesn't become part of "affirmative action". Schools already discriminate against/towards kids based on skin color. Though this seems very unlikely to happen, I do not want to see more discrimination, this time based on sexual orientation, in either direction.

You "don't have any opinion" and you "don't care," but you'd vote against your fellow citizens' rights just to make a point to "gay rights organizations?" And you're saying they're the ones who "punish" people?!?
Geesh, what a land we live in.

Pretty much every tech company is the same... Microsoft, Google, etc. have all supported gay rights on multiple occasions. This isn't exactly news.
