    That gay people are human beings? Which is going too far for some conservatives. :rolleyes:

    Yes, how dare Apple "take sides" in the conversation over whether gay people are worthy of the same rights and dignity as everyone else.

    WOW those are UGGGGGGGLY. Total visual disaster with all the lines. The original pride face is much more classy and subtle. These don't even scream pride....they just.....SCREAM!

    And what political message is Apple exactly sending here?

    Good to know you realise you’re cynical. Apple is about inclusion, and yes that’s part of their brand, but with Tim as the CEO I find it hard to be cynical about their motivations here.

    Wait? Both aren’t mutually exclusive?

    If you don’t know anything about a subject, then why the need to express your opinion? Because, you’re not just “asking”, but trying making a statement and failing to do so because clearly you’re not a member of the LGBTQ community.

    It's unfortunate that this thread isn't about how uninspired the design is, but rather devolved into the usual.

    Colorful, but ugly. Wonder if Apple will ever be inclusive enough to include some straight pride watch faces. Something in black and white I suppose.

    My bad. I didn't realize I was upset. I look forward to seeing those NRA, Pro-Life, and Christian watch faces soon.

    This has gone too far. Too pushy with this. 1 face was plenty. Let it go.

    Lol, as a gay man I agree with him 1000%. Maybe you should sit down since clearly you aren't a member of the LGBTQ community. That is why I love Trump, he see's me as an American. The Democrats see me as a gay vote they can manipulate. Same with all the other minorities out there.

    Segregation is what democrats are best at.

    Sorry, it was actually an app and not podcast. It was for Living Hope Ministries.

    Lol, nice straw man. Most of us conservatives would rather have politics be out of our tech. But alas, here we are because most tech companies are liberal and think they know better than the rest of us.

    Ok so it seems you’re playing fast an lose with the truth here.
    That app was removed not because it was a religious app but because it was advocating for gay conversion therapy and calling a gay lifestyle as destructive.

    So I guess you complained when Hobby Lobby and Chick-fil-a took conservative stances? Or is it only tech companies that have the apolitical imperative?

    Really? Then why does Apple remove conservative podcasts and apps? I am for free speech, and welcome the views from the left. Even if I don't agree with much of the ideology. If they were 100% conservative, and censoring liberal speech you can bet I would be all over them.

    I’ll edit my post here as the mods are ban happy for name calling...

    Suffice it to say I was only joking. I support gay rights and I support our president even though I don’t agree with most things he does. I’m sorry I offended you, it’s difficult to know who has a sense of humor around here and who doesn’t. Have a nice day.

    Ask yourself why most tech companies are liberal. They're not exactly popping up in red states, where education is being slashed the bible is being forced into the curriculum.

    Absolutely disgusted by these. I can’t believe Apple would release gay pride analog faces without numerals. Some of us prefer to have them visible at all times!

    Dad gum librals all high and mighty!

    I like these watch faces. I like colorful things! Remember when Apple’s logo was a rainbow? Pepperidge Farm rememberers.

    Oh is Chick-Fila-A and Hobby Lobby putting anti-lgbtq literature on their receipts? Honestly I don't give a crap if Apple panders to the gays. But donating to pro-family organizations is not the same as what Apple is doing.

    Not hard and fast on the truth at all. It was 100% truth. Bible believing Christians are going to think the gay lifestyle is wrong. Free speech should be welcomed and not suppressed. That would be fascism.

    But they are free to say what they want. Apple is also free not to facilitate it.
